Hempel Launches 2K Epoxy Coating for Offshore Oil & Gas Industry
An International Maritime Organization Performance Standard for Protective Coatings cargo oil tank compliant coating, Hempadur 15600 provides excellent resistance to continuous immersion in a range of hydrocarbons including crude oil up to 90˚C/194°F.

Benefits of Hempadur 15600

  • Hempadur 15600 provides exceptional flexibility for customers, the high temperature resistance offers excellent performance at temperatures where conventional pure and modified universal primers can have limited resistance
  • Unlike many other cargo tank coatings, Hempadur 15600 can be applied at temperatures as low as -5˚C/23°F
  • Hempadur 15600 delivers fast drying and curing properties resulting in a hard, smooth and easy clean surface and is re-coatable after six hours
  • This means significant time and cost savings during dry-docking and maintenance

Maurice Steijger, Group Offshore Manager at Hempel A/S comments:

Hempadur 15600 gives simplicity for construction yards and versatile corrosion protection for owners and operators, particularly those in the FPSO sector”.
