Hempel launches Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester linings range for tough industrial applications

Global coatings company Hempel announced today the launch of its new Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester range of linings. The linings are designed specifically for challenging applications – such as tanks, stacks, ductwork, flue gas desulphurisation units and secondary containment areas – where heavy-duty performance is critical to reducing corrosion and maximising production uptime.


The Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester range is a comprehensive set of linings for the power generation and oil & gas markets. In the power generation industry, the linings are used to protect the internal surfaces of flue gas desulphurisation units, ductwork and stacks in wet and dry environments. In both the power generation and the oil & gas industries, the Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester range can be used as tank linings, as well as to protect concrete surfaces, such as secondary containment structures, from aggressive cargos.

The launch of the Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester linings range means that Hempel can now offer customers a full range of products for internal and external protection.

Pernille Lind Olsen, Group Product Director, Protective Marketing, comments: “There is increasing global demand for coatings for power plants and oil & gas facilities that can protect valuable equipment in aggressive service environments. The Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester lining assortment provides our customers in South East Asia and the Middle East with a locally produced lining assortment, offering a full range of solutions for these difficult conditions.”

The Hempaline Defend Vinyl Ester linings range includes glass and mineral-flake filled coatings and fibreglass-reinforced linings for specific applications.
