When nothing is more important.

Zero fouling was our goal, and Hempaguard is the solution.

Based on patented Actiguard® technology, Hempaguard combines silicone-hydrogel and the controlled release of biocides in a single coat to keep fouling at bay, even if your vessel undergoes extended idle periods, changes trading patters or steams slowly. The result is an impressive average fuel savings of 6 per cent over the entire docking interval compared to best-in-class antifoulings – whatever your vessel’s trading pattern.

Significant return on investment
Hempaguard can specified for docking intervals of up to 90 months. It can be used on the vertical sides and flat bottom of most ship types, on either newbuild vessels or during regular maintenance. A unique coating based on unique technology, Hempaguard is recommended for any ship operator who wants a significant return on investment.

Hempaguard real-life performance
Hempaguard as proven its effectiveness on hundreds of full-ship applications. So don’t just take our word for it, check out what our customers think of Hempaguard in our case stories section.

HEMPAGUARD® real-life performance

Extensive real-life application tests have proven that the effect of HEMPAGUARD® is always the same, regardless of the trading pattern of the vessel and, in particular, when slow steaming and even during idling time in aggressive waters.
