In conditions where your assets and equipment take a real beating, our
Hempadur range of advanced epoxy coatings bring you reliable and proven
anti-corrosive performance

Our Hempadur range of advanced epoxy coatings bring you reliable and proven anti-corrosive performance

Based on advanced epoxy technology, Hempadur coatings provide excellent long-term protection of steel in even the toughest environments. They are ideal for steel structures and equipment where long maintenance intervals are a priority, such as bridges and other civil buildings, offshore installations, chemical plants and power generation facilities.

A full range of advanced epoxy coatings

Our Hempadur range includes primers, intermediates, tank linings and pipe coatings that protect your assets against a range of corrosive elements, from seawater and harsh chemicals to abrasion and high temperatures.

Hempadur coatings can be used as primers or intermediates in anti-corrosive coating systems with a polyurethane, acrylic or non-isocyanate topcoat. They can also be used as primers in passive fire protection systems that require advanced corrosion prevention.

Our Hempadur range includes:


Activated zinc primers: Based on our patented activated zinc technology, Hempadur Avantguard zinc epoxy primers deliver significantly higher galvanic corrosion protection than zinc epoxies without Avantguard.

Holding primers
A full range of holding primers for C3-C5 corrosive environments, including the extremely corrosion resistant Hempadur 15570.
Zinc phosphates

A full range of inhibitor effect coatings, including Hempadur Fast Dry 17410, an extremely flexible coating for mild to severely corrosive environments.

Our range of barrier effect coatings includes Hempadur Mastic 45880, a tough coating that cures at low temperatures.
Tank linings
Designed to protect your tank and limit cross-contamination between cargoes, our full range of tank linings includes high-performance Hempadur 35760.
Heavy-duty coatings
Hardwearing coatings, including Hempadur Multistrength 45751, to protect against heavy impacts and abrasion.
Pipe coatings
Smooth coatings that reduce drag resistance, including HS Gas Pipe Coating 87830.

  • Avantguard® activated zinc primers
    Hempadur Avantguard® is a new range of innovative anti-corrosion primers, which reduces the effects of corrosion and offers advanced protection. Based on activated zinc, the Avantguard® technology not only improves the galvanic protection but also increases the barrier properties and create a powerful inhibition effect.

    • Redefining protection with reduced rust creep and enhanced corrosion protection
    • Redefining durability with improved mechanical strength
    • Redefining productivity with greater working tolerances in different climatic conditions and with high DFTs

    The Hempadur Avantguard® product range includes:
  • Holding primers

    Our range of Hempadur holding primers are two-component coatings, ensuring your surfaces will not corrode during the surface preparation before applying the first coating layer. They are ideal for anti-corrosive systems specified for C3-C5 corrosive environments (C5 without using zinc-rich primers), giving you faster flow in the surface preparation and enhancing efficiency.

    The range includes Hempadur 15570, which cures to a strong and highly corrosion resistant coating at temperatures down to -10°C/14°F as well as Hempadur 15590, a hard-wearing coating for situations where extreme abrasion resistance and resistance to humidity are needed.

  • Zinc phosphate coatings
    Our zinc phosphate coatings provide anti-corrosion performance through the inhibitor effect. The range includes Hempadur Fast Dry 17410, which can be used as a primer in mild to medium atmospheric environments and as an intermediate or finishing coat in epoxy systems in medium to severely corrosive atmospheric environments.
  • Intermediate coatings
    Our range of intermediate coatings protect your steel structures through the barrier effect, preventing water and oxygen from reaching the steel. Hempadur Mastic 45880 for example, is an excellent intermediate to be used in either two- or three-coat systems, forming a hard and tough coating with good wetting properties and low temperature curing.
  • Tank linings

    Our tanks lining assortment provide dual protection in cargo tanks, protecting the steel from being affected by the cargo and preventing the cargo from being contaminated. The range includes:

    • Hempadur 35560, which works especially well as a lining in potable water tanks and potable water pipelines
    • Hempadur 35760, with very high corrosion protection properties and excellent chemical resistance. This coating is especially well-suited for new and old storage tanks containing oils, fuels, bio fuels and a wide range of chemicals
    • Hempadur 35900, a tank lining with excellent adhesion and resistance to crude oil in high temperatures
    • Hempadur 85671, an epoxy phenolic resistant to very aggressive cargos
    • Hempadur15600, provides excellent resistance to continuous immersion in a range of hydrocarbons, including crude oil up to 90°C
  • Heavy duty abrasion resistant coatings

    Having excellent impact and abrasion resistance, this range of coatings are especially well-suited for off-shore splash zones such as helicopter deck on FPSOs and platforms. The assortment includes Hempadur Multistrength 45751 and Hempadur Multistrength 45753 with very good corrosion and abrasion resistance for warm and cold climates, respectively.

  • Pipe coatings

    Designed for carrying of dry, sweet gas, our pipe coatings are designed to reduce the drag resistance by making the pipe walls smoother, improving the flow efficiency. Our assortment includes Hempel's HS Gas Pipe Coating 87830 and Hempel's HS Gas Pipe Coating 87831.
