A new epoxy mid-coat from Hempel can reduce drying times by up to 25 percent for offshore wind tower manufacturers, the company says. 

Hempadur 47300 is a low-solvent coating that can be handled four hours after application at 20°C (68°F).

NORSOK-Approved

The coating is approved and certified according to NORSOK M-501, system 1.

Hempadur 47300

A new expoxy mid-coat from Hempel reduces drying time and is low-solvent, the company says.

Hempadur 47300 can be applied with airless spray and has a volatile organic compound content of 190 grams per litre.

"The offshore wind energy industry is looking to lower costs in every part of the value chain, including productivity in the tower manufacturing stage," said Anders Voldsgaard Clausen, Group Power Generation Segment Manager.

"The curing time of Hempadur 47300 means manufacturers can achieve a faster production flow. As a result, they can coat more towers each shift and use less energy to dry the towers—which will help drive down the cost of each unit."

Hempel manufactures coatings for the protective, marine, decorative, container and yacht industries.
