Awlgrip HDT- a new single-stage topcoat makes life a breeze for yacht owners.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel has launched new single-stage repairable topcoat, Awlgrip HDT (High Definition Technology), the navigating the process of yacht care and maintenance just got a whole lot easier.

Creating a new standard in topcoat appearance and durability, Awlgrip HDT is a high performance, mirror-like single-stage coating which allows owners to protect their boat with a stunning, long-lasting finish, all without sacrificing convenience.

The new product passed the toughest of tests when it was put through its paces during the last edition of the Volvo Ocean Race (now called The Ocean Race). Awlgrip HDT combines the functionality of a hard, durable finish (Awlgrip topcoat) and a slightly softer, repairable finish (Awlcraft 2000) and contains lower VOCs (volatile organic compounds) than traditional topcoats. Awlgrip HDT can also be supplied in any color through AkzoNobel’s Awlmix centers, while around 300 are ready to be selected online at www.mixitcloud.com.

Available now in North America and Europe, the launch of the new Awlgrip product follows on from last October’s introduction of Awlgrip HDT polyurethane clearcoat, which can be used over the full range of Awlcraft SE basecoats.

“We’re always looking to deliver for our customers and Awlgrip HDT will give yacht owners a longer lasting and easier to maintain finish. It’s another tool in the ‘box of paint tools’ which has been specifically tailored for consistent application, reparability and exceptional colour retention,” said Jean Michel Gauthier, AkzoNobel’s Global Business Director for Marine, Protective and Yacht Coatings for Yacht.

“Our products are all about making a difference. We’re committed to creating fit-for-purpose colors and innovative supporting color tools and solutions that meet whatever technical challenges or performance demands our yacht customers may face,” added Bilal Salahuddin, Commercial Director, Yacht Coatings.
