Hempel has introduces the two-coat water repellent coating – Hempatop Repel 800. This new topcoat offers corrosion protection by actively repelling water from the coated surface. The solution enables the use of fewer coating layers for offshore assets and installations and can be applied faster and lasts longer than conventional coatings solutions, according to Hempel.
According to the manufacturer, for optimum protection, Hempatop Repel 800 is used in combination with Hempel's Avantguard technology activated zinc primer – Avantguard 770. The two products work together to create a robust anti-corrosive system. This two-coat system requires one coat less than standard protective coatings solutions for offshore installations.
