Hempel's Antifouling Globic NCT 8190N


Hempel's Antifouling Globic NCT 8190N is a high solids, self-smoothening and self-polishing antifouling. It is based on nanocapsule acrylate binder technology. Selfpolishing is controlled by sea waters interaction with the core-shell structure of the nanocapsules. An inorganic fibre reinforcement ensures mechanical strength. A powerful bioactive mixture and its self-renewing effect makes it suitable for protection in the severe fouling conditions of coastal waters. 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).

Area of use

As an antifouling for bottom and boottop on vessels operating in deep sea trade at medium to high speed and high activity with short idle periods. Aluminium hulls: see Remarks overleaf.
