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.
