Hempaguard X8 89940


Hempaguard X8 is an advanced fouling defence coating based on ActiGuard® technology which utilizes the added effect of advanced hydrogel silicone and an efficient fouling preventing biocide to boost the antifouling barrier, prolong the fouling free period and minimize hull roughness. Hempaguard X8, as part of the Hempaguard MaX system, possesses a very high fuel saving potential and is also suitable for vessels operating with long service intervals (up to 90 months) and/or very long idle periods (up to 120 days). Hempaguard X8 is an advanced fouling defence coating, based on silicone, with high solids content.
