New Epoxies Made for Offshore Assets

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Comment | More

A pair of new marine coatings from Hempel (Kongens Lyngby, Denmark) is designed to protect offshore assets from corrosion, above and below the waterline.

Hempadur Quattro XO 17820 and 17870 are high-performance pure epoxy uni-primers formulated for use on offshore platforms, rigs and support vessels, the company says. The two-component coatings use Hempel’s patented fiber technology to provide advanced crack resistance, according to the manufacturer.

Hempadur Quattro XO 17820 and 17870 are high-performance pure epoxy uni-primers formulated for use on offshore platforms, rigs and support vessels, the company says.

“For asset owners, the key benefits of Hempadur Quattro XO are that fewer variations of protective coating are required across the structure; lifecycle maintenance is greatly simplified and downtime for re-coating is significantly reduced, saving time and money,” said Simon Daly, Hempel’s oil and gas segment manager.

Low-Temperature Application

Additionally, the company notes that the coatings can be applied between 14 and 113 degrees Fahrenheit, giving shipyards and coating applicators the opportunity to apply them even in cold weather.

Both epoxies can be applied to multiple areas above and below the waterline, including ballast water and oil cargo tanks, according to Hempel.

With a high-volume solids ratio (80 percent), the two coatings release fewer VOCs, the company says.
