Jotun Paints to launch innovative coatings at GIF

Jotun Paints, one of the world’s leading coating brands for industrial protection, is showcasing its innovative range of high performance coating technologies for offshore and onshore industries at the upcoming Gulf Industry Fair 2017 (GIF) in Bahrain.

The Northern Gulf's leading business-to-business industrial show, GIF will be organised by Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) from February 7 to 9 under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa the Prime Minister of Bahrain.

The Norwegian coating brand offers a wide repertoire of products that incorporate the latest technological developments to ‘decorate and protect’ when applied to industrial substrates.

Venkat Krishnan, the regional marketing support manager for Middle East and Africa, India, said: “We are delighted to unveil our new range of specialised coating products at the Gulf Industry Fair 2017. The show offers a unique experience and opportunity to network and sell across the Middle East’s industrial sectors."

According to him, Bahrain’s strategic location in the Gulf allows members of GIF to market to key targets in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

“We will be showcasing our 4 main coating products, Tankguard, SeaQuantum, Steelmaster and Jotachar, all of which have been developed and tested to protect industrial, marine, deep sea, offshore and onshore vessels, refineries and chemical plants,” revealed Krishnan.

Tankguard is specifically designed to protect the internal lining of offshore & onshore tanks, pipes and is resistant to crude oil temperatures up to 160°C.

Jotachar PFP is the industry’s first “Mesh Free” solution for hydrocarbon and Jet fires, currently used in onshore drilling, power plants and oil and gas installations.
 
Steelmaster 1200 WF is a water-borne intumescent coating which provides structural steel with 180 minutes of fire protection against cellulosic fire scenarios.

The SeaQuantum Ultra S coating offers self-polishing and low friction antifouling to offshore and slow steaming vessels. This coating has been applied to over 10,000 vessels and has built a reputation as the ultimate fuel saver in the marine coatings business.

Jubran Abdulrahman, the managing director of HCE, said: "Jotun Paints is the world’s leading coating brand for industrial protection. Their debut at GIF is eagerly anticipated by GCC businesses looking to take advantage of the cost-effective use of coatings for their companies."

Gulf Industry Fair 2017 is sponsored by the Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO), Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) in association with Noga. Majaal and Naffco will be supporting the Industrial Facilities and Fire and Safety zones of the event respectively.
