Hempadur Quattro XO was specifically developed for ballast water tanks in new vessels but can also be used as a uni-primer for most vessel areas, both above and below the waterline, according to the company.

The coating is compliant with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Performance Standard for Protective Coatings (PSPC), the company says.

Year-Round Application

Hempel says the coating is fast drying and can be applied year-round in temperatures ranging from -10°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F).

The range of pure epoxy coatings can suit different yard working methods and VOC requirements, the company says.

The product can be upgraded with aluminum pigmentation and proprietary fiber-reinforcement technology to enhance anti-corrosion properties and long-term durability and reduce maintenance, according to the company.
