Hempel USA has introduced an anti-corrosive coating and primer with antifouling tie-coat properties for atmospheric and immersion service.

Hempadur 47183 is a high-solids, low-VOC, modified polyamide adduct cured epoxy.

Hempel Hemadur 47183

Hempadur 47183 can be used as a tie-coat, a replacement for a primer coat, and a sealer for old antifouling coatings, according to Hempel.

According to the company, the coating can be used as a tie-coat between epoxy and physically drying coatings in atmospheric and immersion service applications.

For immersion service, Hempadur 47183 can replace one anti-corrosive primer coat in an underwater coating system and simultaneously act as a tie-coat for antifouling, the company says. It can also be used as a sealer for old antifouling coatings.

Coating Features

According to Hempel, the coating was made to meet tighter VOC limits and to replace one primer coat for underwater hull specifications without compromising the anti-corrosive properties of the coating system.

Hemapdur 47183 features:

  • 35 percent higher volume solids than Hempadur 45182;
  • Higher DFT build-up in a single coat application;
  • Extended recoat interval; and
  • Improved anti-corrosive properties.
