Although specifically developed for ballast water tanks in new vessels, the new coating can also be used as a uni-primer for most vessel areas - above and below the waterline - providing high quality performance and peace of mind for customers.
IMO requires the use of a PSPC certified coating for water ballast tanks and the launch, today, of a new range of pure epoxy coatings represents the latest state-of-the-art in pure epoxy technology which delivers optimised performance based on customer requirements.
HEMPADUR QUATTRO XO offers:
- State of the art high quality pure epoxy technology
- High efficiency for yards due to fast drying and year around applications from -10C to +40C
- Option to upgrade with aluminium pigmentation & proprietary fibre reinforcement technology to enhance anti-corrosion properties and long-term durability with reduced maintenance expectations.
Developed specifically with customer requirements in mind, HEMPADUR QUATTRO XO consists of a range of high quality pure epoxy coatings to suit the different yard working methods and VOC requirements. Longer re-coat intervals are required in Korea and Europe whereas shorter intervals have been adopted in China and the Americas. Similarly, Korea and the US prefer 80% volume solids whilst China mainly works with 60-70%.
For the shipowner, charterer or shipmanagement company, the high quality and robustness of QUATTRO XO gives peace of mind and reduced maintenance costs.
