United Arab Emirates : Borouge showcases new solutions for building and civil infrastructure at the Big 5.

Borouge, a leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions, reinforced its position as a supplier of choice of a wide range of polyolefin products for the plumbing and heating pipe systems for home and indoor solutions for the building and construction industry at the Big 5, an international building and construction show held in Dubai from 25-28 November 2013.

As one of the major tradeshows in building and construction, the Big 5 provided Borouge with an opportunity to demonstrate its latest offerings in PP-R, PP-RCT, PP-B, BorECO and BorSafe solutions, technologies and services that contribute to the improvement of clean water distribution and drainage system for the infrastructural sector.

Borouge is a member of the Emirates Green Building Council (EGBC) which was established in 2010 as an independent forum that helps shaping policies for the built environment and facilitating collaborative solutions to promote sustainable practices in the UAE.

Being part of the EGBC enables the Company to engage with key policy makers in the region and promote green credentials on the growing number of plastics pipes systems used in modern buildings across the region, Khalfan Al Muhairi, Vice President, Marketing Centre Pipe at Borouge, added.

Polyolefin solutions for hot and cold water systems

Borouge offers a range of high quality PP-R, PP-RCT and PEX polypropylene and polyethylene materials for the manufacture of hot and cold water pipe systems. These corrosion resistant materials, which are rapidly replacing metal pipes in buildings throughout Europe and the Middle East, provide long maintenance free operation at high temperatures.

Such demanding application requires materials to be produced up to the highest standards because any failure of a system in a large building or complex can result in high costs. In addition as the pipes are transporting drinking water it is also essential that they should be safe and contamination free to ensure the protection of public health, said Al Muhairi.

Borouge s RA130E PP-R has been fully tested against the requirements of ISO 15874 by the Exova Laboratory in Sweden. In addition, the taste odour properties of the material are regularly checked by the independent German TZW laboratory and RA130E is registered in the UK Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) as being suitable for use with hot water (up to 70AC) and cold water.

Etihad Towers is one of the many high rise buildings in Abu Dhabi that installed hot and cold water supply systems manufactured from Borouge s RA130E PP-R material. The prestigious property covers a total area of over half a million square metres, and the tallest of the five towers is over 300 metres height.
