Hempel Paint & Antifoul

Hempel Paint & Antifoul

On the whole most Paint & Antifoul are compatible and can easily be over coated, however, some basic rules should be applied:

As with any painting project the condition of the surface to be painted must be good - i.e. free from contaminates and in a sound condition.

A hard/non-polishing antifouling will leave an exhausted layer of resin at the end of the season. This should be wet abraded before applying a new coat onto it, to maximise the performance of the new antifouling.

A 'Teflon' antifouling can be over coated assuming it is in good condition and has been washed - DO NOT abrade before applying new antifouling.

A traditional/soft antifouling should be sealed with Underwater Primer before applying an erodible or hard antifouling on top of it.

Hempel's SilicOne Fouling Release System

This amazing, biocide free product is based on silicone and hydrogel, which gives the coating surface water-like properties making it difficult for fouling organisms to attach to the hull and easy for them to be removed when the boat is in motion.

Other amazing benefits are simple fouling cleaning and easy reapplication, resulting in long term cost reduction. revolution will dazzle you with superiority.
What is Hydrogel?

What is Hydrogel?

Hydrogel is based on unique, non-reactive polymers that are added to the paint, creating an invisible barrier between the hull surface and the water.

Fouling organisms perceive the hull as a liquid and are consequently attaching to a much lesser extent.

If the hydrogel is removed can it then build up again?


The polymers responsible for the formation of the hydrogel are evenly distributed in the paint film.

If the original hydrogel is removed a new hydrogel layer instantly builds up when the polymer responsible for hydrogel formation comes into contact with water
