Sigma presents anti-dust, anti-sand paint
Manama, March 9, 2010
Sigma Paints introduced a new technology in paints called the Nanometric Painting System, which features unique anti-dust and anti-sand characteristics at an event in Bahrain.
The launch entitled “Sigma Guardian - Your Atomic Protection” was held yesterday (March 8) at the Crown Plaza Hotel.
The anti-dust and ant-sand is a distinctive product feature of the Sigma Guardian Nano Paint that is vital in the prevalent extreme weather conditions in the Middle East, a statement said.
The dust-free property is made possible by a superior smooth outer layer created by using a unique nanometric process that employs tiny particles, called “Nano”, to fill up the holes in paint film surfaces. This provides a surface that is highly resistant to dust and sand.
“Sigma Guardian Systems and its Nano particles is the result of a big idea translated into a small defensive particle against humidity, scratch, dulling and aging, especially formulated to suit the harsh exposure conditions prevalent in the GCC,” said Steven Rijkaard, brand manager for Sigma Middle East.
“The meteoric power of Nanotechnology now provides us with the universal exterior protection and surface radiance we desire for our homes, properties and buildings,” he added.
Rijkaard continued: “Indeed, no other paint can equal the properties of the Sigma Guardian Nano Paint. The breakthrough technology gives the ultimate protection for buildings, houses and properties, against the destructive effects of extreme weather conditions in the region.”
In addition to this quality, Sigma Guardian Nano also has a host of benefits that are truly unmatched in its category, the statement said.
It is alkali resistant, provides anti carbonation, retains colour for a much longer time then normal coating, has anti-moisture properties, and resistant to UV radiation and the effects of efflorescence.
“Concrete structures unexpectedly get longer life span and are given an improved appearance. All this results in less maintenance, which saves money. It is indeed a very welcome solution to problems our customers in Bahrain face every day,” Rijkaard said.
Elie Salameh, manager of Skyline Trading Corporation – Bahrain, said: “We expect more growth in the Bahraini market, especially after the financial crisis. We have been one of the market leaders in supplying paints for some of the most prestigious projects in Bahrain for example, Durrat Al Bahrain, Bahrain University, Lulu Towers, ERA Towers, etc.”
Mike Murphy, Sigma Paints decorative technical support (DTS) manager, said that “The development of this new outstanding Nanotechnology reflects the increasing expectations of architects, contractors and owners who recognise the need for a paint product that offers superior aesthetic qualities as well as long term financial benefits of extended, paint life protection.” – TradeArabia News Service
