Hempel, one of the world's largest, independent suppliers of decorative, marine and protective coatings, has announced that it has fortified its exclusive range of eco-friendly products in line with the company's "Green Revolution" initiative, which ultimately aims to reduce the impact of Hempel's operations on human health and the environment. Underlining the strength of its eco-friendly product line, Hempel further revealed that some of its products are now registered and listed in the Manual of Green Building Materials issued by the Government of Dubai.
Hempel's products have been classified under three categories in the Manual of Green Building Materials: light colours on the outside of buildings, low-emitting material - paints and coatings, and lead or heavy metal free material. Hempel further announced that it has generated a strong response during its participation at the recently held World Eco Construct Abu Dhabi, wherein the company showcased its award-winning products including the biocide-free Hempasil X3, the Topaz range and the energy-saving and highly durable Contex Thermoguard coating. These products covered Hempel's green initiative from three angles - safe and green formulation, low VOC's and no toxic ingredients.
Mark Rees - Group Vice President and Area Director - Hempel Middle East - East , said: "The Green Revolution initiative aims to establish the Hempel brand as paint supplier of choice for eco-friendly products that offer enhanced health and environmental benefits. It is therefore our continuing thrust to develop high-performance products that comply with international standards and local government regulations related to safety and environmental compliance. We have deployed dedicated staff to ensure that our products comply with government legislation worldwide, while offering value-added support to ensure that customers always use our products correctly and safely."
Laurence Brown, Country Manager - Hempel UAE Said, "The inclusion of Hempel products in the Manual of Green Building Materials of the Government of Dubai strongly reaffirms our commitment to offer sustainable products and solutions that have no adverse effect on human health and the environment. Moreover, the overwhelming positive feedback that we received during our participation at the World Eco Construct Abu Dhabi demonstrates the continuing success of Hempel in developing paint and coating products that satisfy the evolving demands of our customers,"
