Hempel Launches High-Solids Antifouling

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Hempel is launching high-solids versions of their Globic, Oceanic and Olympic antifoulings, which offer optimized features and stronger ROI, according to the company.
The new versions, Globic 9000, Globic 6000, Oceanic+ and Olympic+, have been optimized to offer the benefits of high-solids. Reflecting Hempel’s commitment to investment in R&D, they offer optimized binder systems, polishing rates, biocides and solids levels. In addition, they also feature microfiber technology, which the manufacturer says works like steel reinforcement in concrete to deliver mechanical strength and elasticity
Globic 9000 is Hempel’s new top-end antifouling. An evolution of Globic NCT, it can be specified for 90-month docking intervals. Globic 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 10 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.
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.
