Hempel, a global coatings manufacturer, recently introduced a new high-build epoxy intermediate coating for industrial and infrastructure applications.

Intended to provide longer service life for industrial assets, Hempaprime Multi 500 has launched globally. According to Hempel, it features faster drying times and shorter minimum overcoat intervals for the oil and gas, infrastructure and power-generation sectors.

The coating, which has been specifically designed to dry quickly, increases productivity by shortening the man-hours needed for application, the company says. Hempaprime Multi 500 allows for three coats to be applied in 20 percent less time than current products, including Avantguard 750 and Hempathane HS.

Hempel Group

Hempel Group, a worldwide coatings manufacturer, recently introduced its newest versatile high-build epoxy intermediate coating—Hempaprime Multi 500.

Hempel’s latest coating can be used as a direct-to-metal on primed surfaces as a primer, intermediate or topcoat. According to the company, it can also be used for minor repairs, and due to its long service life for heavy industrial applications, maintenance requirements are minimal.

Fewer Recoats

Given the product’s fast drying time, faster hardness development and improved cracking resistance, it is possible to move steel that has been coated, and build upon it more quickly, with reduced risk of damaging the coating. This leads to less reblasting and recoating, which saves time and money.

"At Hempel, we understand our customers' need for a fast-drying, intermediate coating to increase productivity and shorten the man hours needed for application,” Monica Li Aviram, segment group product manager for infrastructure at Hempel, said in a statement.

“By not requiring thinning in optimum conditions, Hempaprime can be easily applied by spray, brush or roller, offering further efficiencies to asset owners.”

According to the compnay, Hempaprime Multi 500 meets ISO 12944 C5-I High, and is pre-qualified to NORSOK's M-501, Ed. 6, system 1.
