Providing good outdoor stability and anti-corrosive performance, our Hempalin alkyd coatings are an ideal quick-drying and easy-to-apply solution for steel protection in mild to medium corrosive environments.

Our Hempalin product range is ideal for civil structures, such as bridges, airportssports stadia and other buildings, in mild to medium corrosive environments. Based on alkyd binders, the range includes primers that deliver reliable corrosion protection as well as enamel topcoats that provide very good colour and weather resistance on steel substrates.

Hempalin coatings have been designed with application in mind. They are easy to apply and re-coat, helping you simplify maintenance and reduce application costs.

Perfect performance in mild to medium conditions
Our Hempalin coatings can be used as part of fully alkyd coatings systems, or combined with epoxy primers such as Hempadur Avantguard for superior performance.

Our Hempalin range includes:

Hempalin Primer 12050: An easy-to-apply zinc phosphate coating, Hempalin Primer 12050 is an anti-corrosive primer for the protection of steel in mild to medium atmospheric corrosive environments.

Hempalin Enamel 52140: A glossy alkyd enamel, Hempalin Enamel 52140 forms a flexible colour-proof and weatherproof coating. It is resistant to saltwater, mineral oil and other aliphatic hydrocarbon spillages, and can be used for both exterior and interior steel and woodwork in mild to moderate corrosive environments.
