Hempel Adds 'Combic' To Its Range Of Antifouling Products

—Literature Available Hempel's Marine Paints, the worldwide supplier of coating systems to the marine industry, has published a free six-page brochure on Combic, a new product recently added to its range of antifouling products. Combic is an intermediate solution positioned between traditional low-cost and non-polishing systems on the one hand and superior self-polishing antifouling systems on the other.

Combic is purpose-designed to meet the needs of those owners who want to upgrade their specification from a non-polishing antifouling, but without incurring the additional costs involved in choosing the superior self-polishing module solution.

Hempel's Combic has been extensively tested in service and already specified by such owners as BP London, K.I. Larsen, Thenamaris, Fafalios Ltd., Westfal-Larsen, Lyras Brothers, etc.

Combic is a high-build, high-solids coating that can be applied in high dry film thicknesses.

Through its controlled polishing mechanism it exposes a fresh bioactive surface during the entire life of the coating, minimizing roughness development at the same time.

The drydocking interval is directly related to the film thickness applied. A short to medium drydocking interval can be achieved by only applying one coat, while longer intervals are attainable through a two-coat approach.

The product can be applied directly on top of suitable existing systems without the need for a sealer.

Like its Nautic and Classic sisters, Combic forms part of Hempel's tailor-making approach to antifouling systems—a concept which provides owners with a wide range of alternative choices from which to select the optimum system for any given vessel, regardless of its age, size or operating conditions.
