Hempel has introduced a solvent-free epoxy coating for storage tank and pipeline interiors that allows oil and gas companies to store and handle high-temperature crude oil and water without risk of contamination.

Hempadur 35900 is a two-component, solvent-free, high-build, amine-cured phenolic epoxy. It does not release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the environment during application, making it compliant with U.S. environmental regulations, according to Hempel.

Standards and Applications

“As oil companies drill deeper, their need to handle higher-temperature crude oil increases,” says Kunal Nadkarni, Group Oil & Gas Segment Manager at Hempel.

“Crude oil that’s deep underground can reach temperatures up to 90°C. But ordinary coatings can’t handle these temperatures and the subsequent damage to the tank could result in cargo contamination. That’s why we developed Hempadur 35900.”

Hempadur 35900 conforms to the latest NORSOK M-501 standard (rev 6, system 7A, B and C) and has already been approved by some of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, according to Hempel.

Hempel says the coating has been optimized for use with airless spray and brush. It can also be applied with a very high dry film thickness, which reduces the number of required coats, and can be used for bottom rehabilitation of old tanks. The coating is available in light colors for easy cleaning and inspection.

The Hempel Group is a global supplier of protective coatings within the marine, container, yacht and decorative markets.
