Abu Dhabi, UAE - Middle East group Tiger Profiles & Insulation (TPI) has unveiled a multi-million Euro polyurethane sandwich panel plant that it has built over the past two years.
According to a 7 Feb announcement from TPI, this plant -- on a 13 700 sq.m site in the industrial city of Abu Dhabi (2) in Mussafah, UAE -- will be the largest capacity unit for making sandwich panels in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Countries), if not the entire region.
TPI said the new plant will offer a wide range of panels, made to the highest levels of quality in a safe, "atmosphere friendly" environment.
"Our technology was supplied by the leaders in their field," and TPI ensured "that the top-of-the-line technology and our superior raw materials," were used in this project, said Bernard Nasr, executive director of TPI, who was closely involved in setting up of plant, in the statement.
The facility can make polyurethane-insulated wall and roof sandwich panels for industrial and commercial buildings, PU-insulated cold store/room panels for refrigerated buildings, polyurethane insulation slabs for ventilation ducting, floor, wall and roof insulation applications, as well as sheet metal profiles for cladding, roofing and other requirements of the cold store industry, said TPI.
TPI said the sandwich panels can have facings made from rigid or flexible metallic / composite laminate layers. The entire continuous in-line process transforms the raw material into a finished product in just 20 minutes, said TPI's announcement.
According to the UAE-based manufacturer the new plant can make a wide selection of products, including roof panels of size 45/250 or 45/150, with PU thickness of 50, 60, 70, 80 and 100 mm, various facing materials, as well as partition-wall panels and cold-store panels in sizes from 50 up to 175mm.
