HEMPEL LAUNCHES VERSILINE VINYL ESTER COATINGS.

Specifically designed for the ag- gressive industrial environments found in many process industries, Hempel's Versiline Vinyl Ester coatings deliver superior anti-corrosive protection and temperature, chemical and abrasion resistance. The Versiline Vinyl Ester range is already widely used in the US, and Hempel is now launching it in the global market for the first time.

Versiline is a range of tailor-made speciality solutions for highly challenging applications - such as chemical tanks, stack linings and absorbers. The range was initially developed by US company Blome, a company Hempel acquired in 2012. Hempel is now making the Versiline brand available globally, starting with the Versiline Vinyl Ester range, which was launched on 29 October last year. The Versiline Vinyl Ester range includes five coatings that can be combined in various systems depending on the requirements of each application.

Vinyl ester coatings offer superior performance against high temperatures and aggressive chemicals - making them ideal for the extremely corrosive and abrasive environments encountered in many process industries. Strengthened with an epoxy backbone, the coatings in the Versiline Vinyl Ester range are also highly resistant to water penetration, delamination and humidity.

"In certain environments and applications, vinyl ester is the only technology that can do the job," says Jacob Kuruvilla, Country Manager Oman. "Versiline Vinyl Ester coatings have been used in the US by many tank operators and oil & gas and power generation companies for over 40 years. They have a good track record and have proven to reduce downtime and extend the service life of industrial equipment in harsh environments."

EXPANDING THE VERSILINE RANGE

According to Dimitris Likouressis, Hempel's Protective Business Director, Hempel will add new coatings and innovative solutions to the global Versiline range in the near future. "We will soon be launching new solutions as part of the Versiline range for highly challenging applications where heavy-duty performance is critical for both structural integrity and production uptime," he says.

THE VERSILINE VINYL ESTER RANGE AT A GLANCE:

Speciality Products: Temperature, chemical and abrasion resistance for the most aggressive industrial environments.
