New Hempaline Defend linings range now available in North America

Today marks a significant milestone in our energy strategy with our new Hempaline Defend epoxy and vinyl ester range of protective coatings now available in North America. Designed for the oil & gas and power industries, Hempaline Defend linings are specifically tailored to protect equipment used in hostile and challenging conditions.

These new high quality protective linings can offer asset owners increased profits by maximising production uptime through longer service life and reduced maintenance. The oil & gas and power industries suffer from extreme pH swings, high abrasion and elevated temperatures and our new linings deliver high performance corrosion resistance to protect valuable equipment in these aggressive environments.

Michael McGlamry, Protective Product Manager, North America comments:

“We are excited to introduce our new trusted lining solutions to North America. Hempaline high performance linings offer a 24 or 72-hour return to service time while still maintaining the same level of corrosion and cargo contamination protection for our customer’s assets.”

Hempaline Defend epoxy and vinyl ester linings are suitable for a range of applications. This includes storage tank bottoms, process vessels, secondary containment areas, produced water tanks, API 12 F, power plant flue gas desulphurisation ducting and absorbers.

Hempaline Defend vinyl ester linings also include glass, mineral-flake filled coatings and fibreglass reinforced linings for specific applications. The Hempaline Defend epoxy range offers a choice of available hardeners allowing an asset to be returned to service in as little as 24 hours as customers can select a single-coat system – without any reduction in performance.
