75,000 children at the Jumeirah Playground
Since it opened in 1996, more than 75,000 children have enjoyed one of the best adventure playgrounds in the world at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai.
Plascoat versatile Performance Polymer Alloy coating PPA 571 has no small part to play in its success. The coating has proved its durability and longevity and, continues to provide unbeatable protection for the steel framework. The one-acre playground has proved to be a valuable asset to the hotel's facilities and is certainly a popular attraction to the younger guests at this world class hotel complex.
The coating has demonstrated beyond doubt its capability to withstand the harsh effects of coastal salt, intensive UV rays, 100% humidity, high desert winds and rapid temperature fluctuations as well as the wear and tear of over 75,000 children who have taken pleasure in the playground since it opened.
PPA 571 has been successfully used in a number of major construction projects including the Hong Kong Airport and the Channel Tunnel. A spokesman states "PPA 571 has proved to be one of our most versatile products and has been used in applications as diverse as fencing in Palm Beach, Florida to electrical junction boxes in Canada. It is a real testimony to the product that the Leisure complex at Jumeirah Beach is still in pristine condition".
The key benefits of PPA 571 include long-term adhesion (without the need for a primer), excellent edge coverage and extremely high levels of resistance to impact, abrasion, stress cracking, weather and pollutants.
PPA 571 is available for both fluidised bed and electrostatic spraying.
