From sketches to blueprints, from design to execution and beyond – whenever a project is to be built, it is important that the coatings solution ensures the project vision remains as radiant in real life as it is in the designers' imagination. Decorative paints, intumescent coatings, floors, steel and concrete protection, architectural and
reinforcing steel bar powder coatings – a one stop shop provides architects with an efficient and cost effective solution.
This seminar will illustrate how in these demanding times, a single source solution to coating using all
the modern disciplines of the coatings world can make for a more professional, more complete system.
Experience shows this approach is better for the client, better for the architect and the world we live in.
As specifiers, architects and engineers have the task of sourcing high quality, cost effective decorative
and sustainable coatings that need to withstand extreme levels of UV light, humidity, corrosion, high
and low temperature and other environmental pollutants to preserve their strength and appearance.
The single source solution offers the specifier ease of selection, efficient use of resources – both
human and financial, time and related cost savings.
Jotun Paints has come a long way since 1926 when setting up shop in Norway. The business is now
a global market leader and encompasses marine and protective coatings, decorative paints and
powder coatings. It comprises 71 companies, 40 production facilities across all continents with agents
and distributors in more than 70 countries, over 7,000 employees and a turnover in excess of £1bn.
Speaker : Richard Browne has over 15 years technical experience within the demanding coatings
market. He has worked in the high specification world of the City of London with Jotun and other
companies, and with all the leading practices.
