UK-based coatings manufacturer, Liquid Plastics, has appointed Gaby Shar as regional manager for the Middle East and announced plans for expansion in the region.

The company has completed a number of specialist contracts in the Middle East, and is using its experience to highlight the importance of its protection systems in the local climate.

According to the company, it has a range of high quality protection systems for roofs, walls, balconies and hygiene control, which have been specified for projects such as the Exhibition Centre in Damascus and the Planet Hollywood restaurant in Dubai.

More recently it has completed the roof of the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha. Liquid Plastics' Inverted Roof System was specified for the job because of the experience that the firm has in supplying roofing systems in the area and the technical support that it provides in the region. The Inverted Roof System differs from traditional systems due to its totally seamless Decothane Root-Resistant waterproofing layer. The system is insulated with Inverted Roof Board and completed with pavers or ballast that withstand foot traffic. The waterproofing layer in an inverted roof is situated at the bottom of the system, which provides added UV protection and helps to increase a building's thermal performance, therefore reducing air conditioning costs.

Liquid Plastics' products have proven extremely popular across the globe, and they are planning to build on this success in the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

One of the key systems in the product range is for the protection of roofs, using high performance polyurethane membranes as the waterproofing layer, which are completely cold applied and cure to provide a seamless, watertight finish.

They are highly durable, elastomeric, UV stable and can be guaranteed to last for up to 25 years. One of the firm's first roofing projects in the region took place in the 1970s when its products were specified to overcoat a series GRP domes at Sharjah International Airport.
