Oilfield Technology,

With the launch of its new Hempaline Defend epoxy linings, global coatings company Hempel now offers a complete range of linings for challenging applications, where heavy-duty performance and a fast return to service are essential for continued production uptime.

Designed specifically for the power and oil and gas industries, Hempel’s new Hempaline Defend epoxy linings provide long-term protection for assets in challenging environments, such as bulk storage tanks, process vessels, frack tanks and secondary containment areas. The internal linings protect both steel and concrete from aggressive chemicals, elevated temperatures and abrasive service conditions.

Hempel’s newly launched Hempaline Defend epoxy linings come with a choice of hardeners, enabling customers to select a single-coat system that allows a vessel to be returned to service in as little as 24 hours without any drop in performance.

Pernille Lind Olsen, Hempel Group Product & Portfolio Director, comments: “In the power and oil and gas industries, equipment downtime can often mean a loss of revenue. Our Hempaline Defend epoxy linings make it simple for customers to select a fast-cure system when shortened downtime is essential.”

Hempaline Defend epoxy coatings complement Hempel’s recently launched Hempaline Defend vinyl ester range, and mean that Hempel can now offer customers a full range of products for internal and external protection in aggressive environments.

The Hempaline Defend range is currently available in South East Asia and the Middle East, where they are locally produced for shorter delivery times.

Hempel’s Hempaline Defend epoxy linings at a glance:

  • Excellent protection for storage and process vessels against high temperatures and aggressive cargos.
  • High-build single-coat system that allows a vessel to be returned to service in as little as 24 hours.
  • 100% solids for a VOC-free and low-odour solution.
  • Range includes glass flake-reinforced products for tank bottoms and ceramic-filled epoxies for abrasive cargoes.
