Hempel launches high-solid versions of antifoulings

LYNGBY, DENMARK: Hempel is launching high-solid versions of their Globic, Oceanic and Olympic antifoulings, which offer optimized features and stronger return on investment. The new versions, Globic 9000, Globic 6000, Oceanic+ and Olympic+, have been optimized to offer the benefits of high-solids. They offer improved binder systems, polishing rates, biocides and solids levels. In addition, they also feature microfibre technology, which works like steel reinforcement in concrete to deliver superior mechanical strength and elasticity.

The new high-solids antifoulings allow shipowners to reduce the environmental impact of their vessels. By delivering protection against fouling, they cut fuel consumption and associated emissions. Plus, their emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are very low. Offering exceptional performance in even the most aggressive waters, Globic 9000 is Hempel’s new top-end antifouling. An evolution of Globic NCT, it can be specified for 90-month docking intervals.

Both Globic 9000 and Globic 6000 are designed around patented nano-capsule binder technology, which has been refined by Hempel over the last ten years. Importantly, analysis of indocking vessels using an antifouling based on this technology confirms they show very little evidence of fouling even after five years at sea.
