Hempel has signed an agreement with DuPont Performance Coatings related to topcoat systems technology for the superyacht market.
Full range for ProSystem
Now new ProFinish topcoats will complement Hempel’s existing ProFiller and ProBuild products to create a distinctive and durable ProSystem range for every aspect of superyacht coating, from form to finish. Available in a wide range of high gloss colours, including metallic and pearlescent, the topcoats can be repaired, and larger areas buffed and polished at application, offering flexibility during the project.
“Both companies are focused on innovative technology, so we are delighted to cooperate with DuPont,” said Jacqui Knott, Group Marketing Yacht Manager at Hempel. “Our reputation in the superyacht sector is growing rapidly, and adding quality high gloss topcoats based on DuPont technology to our range helps further to make ProSystem the ideal coatings solution. We’re extremely positive about the way ProSystem is developing.”
ProSystem’s flexibility is highly-rated by superyacht project managers and applicators, on both newbuilds and refits. The breadth of product choice means any changes in project conditions can be met. The range also includes one of the lightest fillers on the market.
Meeting clients’ needs
Hempel – already a key player in the yacht and marine markets for 90 years – is rapidly establishing ProSystem as a leading and recommended superyacht coating system. In addition to its cooperation with DuPont, Hempel is investing substantially in tailored support and service solutions to provide the kind of partner-based approach superyacht projects need.
“We don’t just provide paint,” said Knott. “We provide project specific solutions.”
