Description

Hempel High Protect , formerly known as Gel Protect,  is a system for the protection against and treatment of osmosis. It is a high build two component solvent free epoxy. High Protect is easy to apply, with a long overcoating window and good tolerance to environmental conditions. Drying to a very high film thickness, it can be used as a substitute for Light Primer when solvent emissions are a consideration. Suitable for use above and below the waterline.


Preparation and Applications
  • Ensure hull is suitably prepared and all surfaces are clean, oil free and dry
  • Stir all products well before use
  • If overcoating times are exceeded, abrade the surface and wash off with fresh water
  • To ensure maximum pot life, empty mixed contents promptly in to the paint tray
  • Only mix the amount of material that can be applied within the pot life time

For osmosis protection
  • Fill and fair as necessary with Epoxy Filler
  • Then apply 2 coats of High Protect

For osmosis treatment
  • Apply a primer coat of High Protect
  • Fill and fair as necessary with Epoxy Filler
  • Apply further coats of High Protect as necessary to recommended film thickness of 3 to 4 coats
  • Overcoat with Underwater Primer, followed by 2 coats of Antifouling

Mixing

Mix ratio is 3 parts base to 2 parts curing agent by volume. Add curing agent to base and stir well. For best results allow mixed paint to rest for several minutes before use to allow air bubbles to escape. Do not thin.
