Hempel's Introduces New Antifoulings — Literature Available

A new approach to non-polishing antifoulings—a product area many sources estimate accounts for at least 85 percent of the total world market for antifoulings—was announced recently by Hempel's Marine Paints A/S.

Through half a century of research and development of traditional, non-polishing antifoulings, Hempel's has gained a thorough understanding of the effects of antifoulings.

It is this know-how that now enables Hempel's to introduce, under the name Classic, a new optimized range of these traditional coatings.

The Classic range consists of four products: antifoulings 7611, 7633, 7655, and 7677, which together cover the full non-polishing spectrum by taking into account the degree of protection required by individual vessels for their particular trading pattern, activity level, and desired drydocking interval.

The versatility of the Classic range, through combining the products' variable film thickness and coating sequence abilities, provides no less than 13 alternate specifications. This, together with the easy to follow selection table, not only allows the shipowner the widest choice, but enables him to recognize and choose the optimum non-polishing system for each individual vessel.
