Hempatop Repel 800 is used in combination with Hempel's patented Avantguard technology activated zinc primer – Avantguard 770. The first volumetric water repellent topcoat on the market, Hempatop Repel 800 (used with Avantguard as the first coat) delivers improved flexibility and crack resistance, increased adhesion retention and minimizes corrosion.
This two-coat system requires one coat less than standard protective coatings solutions for offshore installations and lasts significantly longer.
"We have found that traditional three-coat systems used for offshore structures regularly show signs of early coating failure," said Oriol Osso, head of Energy, Group Product Management, Hempel. "This is primarily due to water ingress through the coating system, stress-induced micro-cracking and/or mechanical damage. This leaves asset owners with unsustainable maintenance costs. Our new Hempatop Repel 800, used in combination with our innovative activated zinc primer Avantguard 770, simplifies the process and addresses all these challenges. Assets can now be protected for longer, reducing the frequency and cost of ongoing maintenance."
The Hempatop Repel 800 system can be applied in just one day.
Hempatop Repel 800 is now available worldwide through local Hempel technical representatives.
