Hempel Launches New HEMPAGUARD

Global coatings supplier Hempel has launched HEMPAGUARD®, a new hull coating based on a fusion of silicone-hydrogel from Fouling Release products and biocide from antifoulings.

HEMPAGUARD® is available as two separate products: HEMPAGUARD® X5 for up to 36 months and HEMPAGUARD® X7 for up to 90 months service intervals.

Tests have shown that HEMPAGUARD® retains its effectiveness when switching between slow and fast steaming anywhere in the world as well as during extended idle periods of up to 120 days.

This is particularly interesting for bulk carriers that can be redirected at short notice, as well as larger container vessels and tankers that may wish to increase speed to meet schedules, or slow steam to achieve extra fuel savings.

Hempel is offering a performance satisfaction guarantee contract for vessels complying with a full HEMPAGUARD® X7 specification.
