Humidur® AF

Humidur® AF is the anti-fouling coating in the Humidur® product range. This environmentally approved product is generally applied on structures where fouling forms a threat to the operations. The coating can be applied to static and dynamic structures as the mechanism is based on friction-less leaching. It is designed to be applied in one coat on steel, concrete, aluminum, glass reinforced plastic (GRP), fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) or on top of a Humidur anti-corrosion coating to stop corrosion AND fouling. 

Product characteristics

Humidur® AF is a solvent-free and tin-free 2-component modified polyamine cured epoxy coating. Humidur® AF offers an excellent adhesion onto the Humidur® anti-corrosion layer or straight onto the substrate if requested and stops the bio community from adhering by safe leaching.

Major Benefits

  • Protection against fouling
  • Single coat system
  • Environmentally friendly (100% solids, no solvents, no TBT, no isocyanates)
  • Capable of curing under water
  • Excellent adhesion to the substrate
  • Can be applied on steel, concrete, aluminium, glass reinforced plastic (GRP), fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) or on top of Humidur® anti-corrosion coatings

Recommended use

Humidur AF is generally applied on structures where fouling forms a threat to the operations:

  • Anti-fouling in shipping: e.g. ship’s hull
  • Offshore structures
  • Marine structure: e.g. lock door
  • Intakes of cooling systems or hydropower facilities
  • Inside of pipelines transporting any kind of water, regardless of its salinity

When the substrate is steel or aluminium, provide an anti-corrosion layer first.

Approvals/ Certificates

  • ABS certificate (American Bureau of Shipping)
  • CCS certificate (Chinese Classification Society)
  • University Ghent: tin-free anti-fouling coating
  • SGS Intron: Leaching from a coating system: determination of anti-fouling properties
  • Eco-friendly anti-fouling according to MSC.282(6), IMO MSC.1/Circ.1379, IMO MSC.1/Circ.1426
