Hempaguard X5 89700


An advanced fouling control coating with high solids content. The product is based on silicone, and cures after addition of Crosslinker 98980. It provides a smooth, low surface energy, repellent surface with unique fouling control properties. A hydrogel micro layer prevents fouling organisms firmly adhering while the silicone polymers facilitate self-cleaning. It therefore possesses a high fuel saving potential and is especially suitable for vessels operating with medium service intervals and/or long idle periods.

Area of use

For vessels with service speeds above 8 knots. This product does not contain organotin compounds acting as biocides and complies with the International Convention on the Control of Harmful Antifouling Systems on Ships as adopted by IMO October 2001 (IMO  document AFS/CONF/26).
