Hempel launches new primers
Zinc coatings are commonly used to protect industrial structures and equipment in C4 and C5 corrosive conditions, where saltwater and high humidity corrode unprotected steel.
Based on new, patented AvantGuard technology, the Hempadur zinc primers have been developed for a range of industries and applications, from offshore oil & gas platforms to wind turbines.
Pernille Lind Olsen, Hempel Group Protective Product Director said: “AvantGuard is perhaps one of the biggest changes in anti-corrosive technology since zinc coatings were first introduced during the 1960s. The technology gives customers strong anti-corrosion performance in a coating that has high mechanical strength.”
