Coatings manufacturer Hempel has developed an epoxy coating that offers improved curing times for manufacturers of offshore wind towers.

Specially formulated for the offshore wind market, the HEMPADUR 47300 epoxy can help offshore wind tower manufacturers drive down production costs and reduce drying times by up to 25%.

According to Hempel, the coating can be applied with an airless spray and handled four hours after application at 20 degrees C, compared to an average of five hours for standard equivalent coatings.
