Hempel new linings range comes to Europe to maximise production uptime

03.07.2017
Hempel’s new Hempaline Defend epoxy linings are now also available in Europe to protect steel and concrete tanks in challenging and highly corrosive environments. As a single coat system, they ensure assets are returned to service in as little as 24 hours without any reduction in performance.

Aimed specifically at the power and oil & gas industries, where safeguarding production uptime is critical, this new range of linings is a simple choice for heavy duty protection in aggressive environments, reducing the time an asset is taken offline for maintenance.

The range offers:

  • Excellent protection for storage and process vessels against high temperatures and aggressive cargos
  • High-build single-coat system that allows a vessel to be returned to service quickly
  • 100% solids for a VOC-free and low-odour solution
  • Option of glass flake-reinforced products for tank bottoms

In addition, Hempel will be launching its Hempaline Defend vinyl ester linings range in Europe later this year. These coatings are designed specifically for application in acidic environments, neutralisation areas and sumps.

Hempaline Defend epoxy linings were successfully launched in the Middle East and Southeast Asia last year.
