Hempel Introduces 'Damp Steel' Primer

—Literature Available A new primer, specially developed for application on damp steel surfaces, was recently introduced by Hempel's Industrial Coatings, a worldwide manufacturer of industrial, offshore and container coatings.

Called Hempadur 1557, the new coating is well suited for surfaces that have been wet abrasive blasted or for steel that is to be coated under humid conditions.

Typical applications of Hempadur 1557 are for offshore structures (on all areas above the waterline); maintenance work on refineries, petrochemical plants and storage tanks, where wet abrasive blasting is used because it eliminates the danger of sparks; where it is necessary to apply wet abrasive blasting to eliminate the detrimental effects of dust on nearby installantsions and machinery; and the detrimental effects of dust on nearby installations and machinery; and the superstructure of ships.

The new coating is a two-component epoxy polyamide-cured primer, and is suitable as a general primer for both new construction and maintenance work, providing a strong bond between the substrate and the subsequent coating.

It is compatible with epoxy and other advanceced top coat systems such as polyurethane, vinyl, acrylic and chlorinated rubber-based materials, and has extended service life in moderate to severe corrosive marine and industrial environments.
