An addition to the HEMPADUR range, HEMPADUR 15600 is a IMO PSPC cargo oil tank compliant, pure epoxy tank coating resistant to continuous immersion in a range of chemicals, including crude oil up to 80 C/176 F, according to Henkel.
In addition, this new pure epoxy coating incorporates high cross-link density technology on level with a phenolic epoxy coating, which gives added chemical and corrosion resistance and a hard, smooth and glossy surface for easy cleaning. HEMPADUR 15600 is also suitable for grey and black water tanks, mud and brine tanks, refrigerated seawater fish tanks and other vessel tanks.
HEMPADUR EASY 47700, also launched, is a brand new pure epoxy “all seasons” primer designed for the marine maintenance market. It was developed in response to demands for a reliable, user friendly and flexible coating for use in dry-dock under all climate conditions. This new coating can be used on almost all vessel surfaces (above and below the waterline) and was designed to deliver high surface tolerance and reliability across the temperature scale. HEMPADUR EASY 47700 can be applied at temperatures as low as -10°C/50 F and up to +40 C/104 F which allows it to be used in most dry docks and at most times of the year.
