Global coatings maker Hempel has launched an anti-corrosive coating that combines primer and topcoat in a single coat and cures in 60 minutes.

Based on polyaspartic fast-cure technology, new Hemparea 55973 is suitable for C3 corrosive environments—the only C3 classified coating on the market that can be handled within one hour at 20°C (50% RH), according to Hempel.

Hempel says the quick-curing formulation of Hemparea 55973 can drastically speed production times for a variety of manufacturing industries, including wind tower production.

The product releases few volatile organic compounds into the environment and can be applied directly to metal manually or with robotic spray equipment, the manufacturer says.

Increasing Production

Hempel says Hemparea 55973 can dramatically increase line speeds for heavy machinery and prefabricated steel manufacturers in a number of manufacturing industries, from wind tower production to railcar manufacturing. 

“A standard C3 classified anti-corrosive coatings system takes between four and 12 hours to dry, depending on the coating system, which can mean a huge bottleneck in a production line, especially for manufacturers that use two or three-coat solutions,” said Anders Voldsgaard Clausen, Group Segment Marketing Manager at Hempel.

“By reducing that curing time to one hour, Hemparea makes it possible for manufacturers to vastly increase line speeds and so reduce production costs.

“We really believe Hemparea can be of great benefit to a large number of customers who want to improve efficiency and production times.”
