'Planet Supra' to be launched in Oman
Muscat, July 21, 2011
Thermal barrier coating ‘Planet Supra’ will soon become available in Oman under a technical collaboration between Sci Paint Japan and Sadolin Paints (Oman).
Planet Supra’ is the first thermal barrier coating to be launched in Oman, and is the only coating to be recognised by the Clinton Climate Initiative for being an efficient environment product.
To be called a thermal barrier coating, solar reflectivity has to be greater than 90 per cent across all infrared wavelength bands.’ Planet Supra’ is also the first product in the GCC to meet a reflection rate of 94.6 per cent, which helps reduce both electricity consumption and CO2 emissions.
Extensive testing and trials have resulted in ‘Planet Supra’ being approved by Wal-Mart (Chile), Carrefour (Thailand), Coca-Cola (Japan), Al Zour Power Plant (Kuwait), and Masdar Properties (Abu Dhabi).
‘Planet Supra’ is the first carbon offset product in the Japanese Paints industry.
From the time of its inception, Sadolin Paints (Oman) Ltd has always been the first to bring the best and most relevant international technology to the GCC market.
Versatile and easy-to-apply, ‘Planet Supra’ can be applied on any surface (i.e. concrete, bricks, metal, wood, or canvas) by using a roller, brush or spray gun; and since a second coat can be applied within two hours, labour can be saved too. ‘Planet Supra’ can be used to paint homes, buildings, containers, factories, stores, warehouses, industrial equipment and vehicles. It is an ideal product for application on rooftops of individual households and commercial buildings, as it makes the surface cooler and helps reduce power consumption. It is estimated that the use of ‘Planet Supra’ paints can reduce power consumption by 30 per cent.
Water-based, non-toxic, with near zero VOC levels, ‘Planet Supra’ also betters the limit set by Leed (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for green buildings. It is due to this, and its additional feature of helping reduce power consumption, that ‘Planet Supra’ is also an ideal choice for customers looking to obtain a Leed certification.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with Sadolin Paints and make available this important energy-efficient paint to the Sultanate of Oman,” said Zaeem Haq, executive director, International Business Development Division, Sci paint japan.
MM Khan, general manager of Sadolin Paints said: “We are pleased to announce our technical collaboration with Sci paint japan and bring ‘Planet Supra’ to the sultanate. Sadolin Paints has always been known to raise the bar when it comes to environment friendly versatile paints; and the launch of ‘Planet Supra’ is a step in the very same direction. With temperatures soaring high each summer we are pleased to manufacture this high quality finish with superior protection for our customers in Oman. ‘Planet Supra’ not only reiterates our commitment to the upkeep of the environment, but also exemplifies our aim of catering to the exact need of our target audience.”
Available in white and 22 other shades, Planet Supra has successfully been used as a cost effective and eco-friendly solution to reduce temperatures in various companies across the globe. - TradeArabia News Service
