Awlgrip HDT, the Next Generation of Yacht Finishes

For over 40 years, the Awlgrip name has held a reputation of universal trust and recognition in the world of decorative yacht coatings. Now, AkzoNobel is proud to be unveiling a revolutionary new Awlgrip topcoat at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019: Awlgrip HDT.

With unrivalled gloss, spectacular colour, exceptional colour retention and outstanding Distinction of Image (DOI), Awlgrip HDT is a high-performance polyurethane topcoat designed to elevate luxury yacht finishes to the next level. Likewise, hardness and micro-scratch resistance combined with repairability allows Awlgrip HDT to deliver superior protection and longer in-service performance.

“Awlgrip HDT, where HDT is short for High Definition Technology, also represents High Gloss, Durability and True Colour”, explains Hans Slegtenhorst, Yacht Segment Manager at AkzoNobel. “We believe it represents a real step-change in terms of aesthetics and performance, worthy of the finest vessels at the Monaco Yacht Show. We’re excited to make a splash with Awlgrip HDT.”
