Hempel's Antifouling Oceanic 8490K


Hempel's Antifouling Oceanic 8490K is a high solids, tin-free, self-smoothening and self-polishing antifouling. Polishing is based on an ion exchange, resulting in a hydrolysable activated layer. An inorganic fibre reinforcement of the resin matrix ensures effective polishing control and mechanic strength.

Area of use

As an cost effective tin-free antifouling for bottom and boottop on deep-sea going vessels operating at medium to high speed and high activity with short idle periods, and with dry-docking interval of up to 60 months. Aluminium hulls: see Remarks overleaf.
