Hempel showcases eco-friendly paints
Dubai, February 18, 2013
Hempel, one of the world's largest, independent suppliers of decorative, marine and protective coatings, is conducting a special presentation about the latest developments in eco-friendly paints
at the 4th Annual Sustainable Building Materials & Construction Technologies (SBMCT) conference in Dubai.
The conference, which opened on February 17 will end tomorrow (February 19) at the Hyatt Regency Dubai.
Johnson Puthanangady, regional R&D manager of Hempel Middle East, leads the presentation that includes an exclusive demonstration of Hempel’s Contex Thermoguard, a top-selling exterior coating brand that is formulated with special pigments to help reduce temperature inside offices and houses.
Puthanangady said: “Governments across the region are increasingly enforcing new regulations that are geared towards sustainable and environment-friendly development. Dubai, for instance, has introduced its own green building code, which has prompted developers and contractors to proactively adopt sustainable construction materials, technologies and techniques.
“Hempel’s eco-friendly paints have therefore been developed to satisfy the growing sustainability and environmental concerns. Specifically, Hempel’s green profile is optimised for reducing VOC emissions, reducing hazardous material, reducing health hazards, minimising energy consumption and reducing waste.” - TradeArabia News Service
