Jotun wins Qatar convention centre contract
Doha, August 31, 2009
Jotun Paints, one of the world's leading producers of paints and coatings, has won a sizeable deal to deliver its top-range floor coating solution to the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).
The project involves the coating of the convention centre’s 140,000 sqm - car parking floor area using the ‘Jotafloor Traffic Deck System’, a high performance coating system designed specifically to protect concrete floors exposed to vehicular traffic.
Combining the latest glass flake reinforced epoxy and polyurethane technology, the ‘Jotafloor Traffic Deck System’ can be tailor-made to suit floors in car parks, walkways, ramps and external traffic decks.
For the QNCC project, Jotun Qatar will deliver 90,000 litres of ‘Jotafloor Traffic Deck System’; 100,000 kilograms of ‘Jotafloor’ non-slip aggregate; and 14,000 litres of ‘Jota Armour’, a high build epoxy flooring system with excellent abrasion resistance and anti slip properties, which will be used for the bus and taxi ramps. ‘Jotafloor Coating’, a solvent free epoxy coating, will be applied to the floors of the technical rooms containing house compressors, generators and HVAC equipment.
“Concrete floors require protection from being attacked by chemicals, contamination from spillage, impact, abrasion and a host of other potentially damaging criteria. Taking these factors into consideration, we have developed ‘Jotafloor Traffic Deck System’, which has set an extremely high performance history in many parts of the Middle East,” said Gunnar Eikebu, branch manager, Jotun Qatar.
In addition to the flooring, Jotun Qatar will also supply the intumescent coating ‘Steelmaster’ and the anti-carbonation coating ‘Jotashield Tex Ultra’.
Jotun Paints will also deploy trained and experienced specialists to manage the application of ‘Jotafloor’ paints within the QNCC grounds.
“Our ‘Jotafloor’ products have undergone tests under internationally and regionally recognised independent testing laboratories which have guaranteed their capacity to address the protective requirements of most structures in the region,” concluded Eikebu.-TradeArabia News Service
