Hempel launches new coating range in Oman
Muscat, March 24, 2013
Hempel, a leading supplier of decorative and protective coatings, recently launched its new brand of intumescent coatings, a solution for passive fire protection of steel structures in Oman.
The launch of Hempacore, held at Crown Plaza in Muscat, was attended by representatives from governmental and private organisations.
Lars Risum, Hempel Group’s business development manager for Intumescent Coatings, gave a presentation about the special features and superior technical qualities of Hempacore.
Risum explained that Hempacore, which has been approved by various international certifying agencies, is a state-of-art intumescent product when it comes to offering customers with efficiency, flexibility, and durability. The products are designed to offer protection to steel structures up to 120 minutes.
Hempacore is a perfect solution for in-shop and on-site applications as it can be applied at dry film thickness (DFT) up to 1500 microns in a single coat thus providing flexibility by making it possible to optimize application on every project type, said Risum.
Jacob Kuruvilla, Hempel’s country manager for Oman, said: “The launch of the Hempacore range of intumescent paint further strengthens Hempel’s competitive edge as the preferred protective coatings brand in Oman as customers now benefit to have the opportunity of having both high performance corrosion and fire protection coating systems from a reliable supplier.”
Hempacore One and Hempacore One FD offer core benefits and set new standards for acrylic based intumescent. Both Hempacore One & Hempacore ONE FD are tailor-made to offer increased application productivity, fire performance and long term reliability.
Hempacore Core range are approved to the European standard EN13381-8 and have also been launched in several European other countries. – TradeArabia News Service
