Hempel’s new Hempaguard MaX system with three layer fouling defence mechanism

Hempel’s new three-coat system helps easy application and also reduces docktime of the ship compared to competitors. It also has fouling defence mechanism which keeps algae away securing surfaces from deterioration and corrosion.Hempel, a leading global coatings manufacturer, has recently launched an innovative new fouling defence system—Hempaguard MaX. This unique three-coat system provides vessels with a smoother hull. It reduces drag and results in significantly lower fuel requirements, and will deliver a guaranteed maximum speed loss of 1.2 percent over five years.
 
The Hempaguard MaX system is applied in just three layers. The new product reduces time in dry dock by up to two days. The combined savings could payback the cost of the coating within three months. 
 
Davide Ippolito, Head-Marine Group Product Management, Hempel, said, “The high level of fuel savings and hull protection are achieved due to the low average hull roughness (AHR) level delivered by the whole coating system, very low speed loss over the entire operational period and improved anticorrosive capabilities.”
 
“Hempaguard MaX is the next logical step for ship owners and operators seeking to maximise their efficiency and reduce associated CO2 emissions. At a time where marginal gains are of importance and environmental regulations are becoming stricter, the choice of hull coating can make a significant difference,” added Ippolito. 
 
Hempel’s new system is built on its flagship hull coating Hempaguard X7. Hempaguard MaX has ability to successfully exploit the synergies between its three different layers, Hempaprime Immerse 900, tie-coat Nexus II, and Hempaguard X8.
 
The top coat Hempaguard X8, driving the exceptional antifouling performance, is built on Hempel’s enhanced patented Actiguard technology. This unique coating combines the smoothness of silicone coating with an improved hydrogel microlayer and active ingredient to provide outstanding antifouling performance, full operational flexibility and smooth hull.
