Protective coatings maker Hempel has completed its range of coatings for bulk carrier cargo holds with the launch of Hempadur Impact 47800.

 Hempadur Impact 47800 is the latest addition to Hempel’s cargo hold coatings, which also include Hempadur 47500 (pictured).

Hempadur Impact 47800 joins Hempadur 47500 (pictured) in Hempel's cargo hold coatings line.

The coating is designed to protect ship cargo holds from both mechanical damage and the severe abrasion caused by loading hard,  angular cargoes. Hempadur Impact is formulated for abrasion-, impact- and corrosion resistance, as well as easy cleaning between cargoes.

Price vs. Performance

Hempel recommends Hempadur Impact for shipowners who want a high-performance cargo hold coating with an attractive price/performance ratio. The coating is designed for a 7½-year major repair interval.

“Hempadur Impact has been specifically developed for bulk carrier operators who want to extend cargo hold coating repair intervals, but don’t want to invest in the highest-performing coatings,” said Michael Aamodt, Group Marine Product Manager.

“It offers high-end  impact resistance to prevent ‘shooting’ damage from high-speed loading and a high glass transition temperature to ensure the coating remains hard when exposed to warm cargoes.”

Features and Specs

The low-VOC epoxy is available in gray, red and aluminum shades. It can be applied year round to steel surfaces prepared to a minimum of Sa 2.

Hempadur Impact 47800 at a glance:

• 76% volume solids

• VOC compliant (below 250 g/l)

• Certified for carriage of grain and FDA compliant for dry food contact

Hempel’s range of cargo hold coatings also includes Hempadur Quattro 17634, a universal epoxy with a long in-service track record; and Hempadur Ultra-Strength 47500, a top-of-the-range epoxy made for ultra-high abrasion and impact resistance.
