New dedicated bulk carrier cargo hold coating from Hempel

18 January 2013

Hempel has launched Hempadur Impact 47800, a dedicated coating for bulk carrier cargo holds. Offering high-end abrasion, impact and corrosion resistance it completes Hempel’s range of cargo hold coatings.

The coating protects ship cargo holds from both mechanical damage and the severe abrasion caused when loading hard angular cargoes. With a 7½ year major repair interval, it enables shipowners to extend drydocking periods between major cargo hold coating repairs and so reduce maintenance costs.

A low-VOC, pure epoxy coating, Hempadur Impact is available in grey, red and aluminium shades and can be applied all year round to steel surfaces prepared to a minimum of Sa 2.
