Hempel launches high-solids versions of their Globic, Oceanic and Olympic antifoulings, which offer optimised features and stronger ROI.

The new versions, Globic 9000, Globic 6000, Oceanic+ and Olympic+, have been optimised to offer the benefits of high-solids. Reflecting Hempel’s commitment to investment in R&D, they offer optimised 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.

Hempel officially launched the new products at the recent 5th Annual Middle East ShipTech Conference in Dubai, offering at the same time key industry insights, including strategic benefits of the new high-solids antifoulings and other Hempel products.

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. Global 6000 is a new product in the Globic series, which builds on the same technology as Globic 9000. It is suitable for 60-month intervals.
 
 
Both Globic 9000 and Globic 6000 are designed around patented nano-capsule binder technology, which has consistently 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 5 years at sea.
 
Oceanic+ is a more economical solution for 60-month intervals. It offers dependable performance in most trading waters, and is also available in a special version developed for flat-bottom applications.
 
Olympic+ is an evolution of Olympic, an antifouling with a documented record of strong and reliable performance not overly aggressive fouling waters. It offers improved performance for 36-month service intervals.

According to Torben Rasmussen Group Product Manager at Hempel, the company’s new antifoulings offer shipowners security in uncertain times: ‘We are proud that our new antifoulings offer our customers the confidence that comes with proven performance."
