A range of robust topcoats providing an excellent colour and gloss finish, our Hempathane coatings will keep your assets looking attractive for years, even in highly corrosive environments.

Hempathane topcoats and finishing coats are designed for steel protection in severely corrosive atmospheric conditions and chemically corrosive environments. They will remain in good condition for years with minimal maintenance, ensuring you benefit from a longer asset lifetime and efficient maintenance.

Our Hempathane products are designed for constructions where a reliable combination of corrosion protection and colour and gloss resistance are needed. They are ideal for a range of industries, from oil and gas to power generation and other process industries, and can also be used on buildings and infrastructure that is exposed to harshly corrosive conditions.

A high gloss finish to your anti-corrosive system
Hempathane coatings give a glossy and robust finish to a range of anti-corrosive protective systems. They can be used with a number of primers and/or intermediates, including zinc epoxies and other high-performance anti-corrosive coatings, as well as intumescent fire protection coatings.

The Hempathane product range includes Hempathane HS 55610, a two-component polyurethane topcoat that is cured with aliphatic isocyanate and zinc phosphate to provide a high-quality gloss finish and excellent colour retention. This high volume solids high-build topcoat is an ideal finishing coat in corrosive environments, and can also be used as a direct-to-metal one-coat system in C2 and C3 corrosive environments.
