Fast-curing 2K PU enables efficient pipe coating
Al Dhakira, a city in Qatar, is expanding enormously. This includes the development of a district of the city with new residential and commercial settlements covering 275,000 sqm. An important aspect of the infrastructure for this project was the building of a new 111 km long pipeline for sewage and treated sewage water in Al Dhakira.
The ease of application and the fast-curing properties at ambient temperature made polyurethane a perfect choice for this project.
We had very few cracks and damage during transportation and installation of the pipes, which significantly reduced the amount of repair work.
Why Desmodur® and Desmophen® were the right solution for Al Dhakira’s pipeline
- Fast-curing: PU coating cures rapidly at ambient temperature.
- Ease of application: Suitable for in-situ automatic spray coating.
- Strong & flexible: Highly resistant to mechanical strain and damage.
