The tanks and pipelines of Nord Terminal Paldiski petroleum terminal were recently maintenance painted with Nor-Maali´s Normadur 65 HS. The contractor for the painting project was Oü Nor-Maali´s long-term customer, Oü Korund.

Oü Korund is a painting company founded in 1991 near Tallinn, Estonia. Korund specializes in painting of tanks and pipelines.

The Paldiski terminal is located on a 28-hectare site next to the Port of Tallinn Paldiski South Harbour and is the only oil product rehandling terminal in Paldiski. The terminal has a tank farm of 358 000 m³. The modern technology allows for various types of oil products to be stored and handled in the terminal at the same time while guaranteeing complete separation.
The tanks, pipelines and railway tank wagon handling facilities were maintenance painted with Normadur 65 HS polyurethane coating. Normadur 65 HS was chosen as the paint for the project as it has an excellent adhesion to old paint surfaces. In addition, with Normadur 65 HS, it is possible to paint thick films and it has good hiding power. As a pre-treatment the surfaces were washed.
Normadur 65 HS is a fast drying, flexible polyurethane coating with an aliphatic isocyanate curing agent. The product is high solid and contains rust preventing pigments. Normadur 65 HS has a good impact resistance and it can be piled after a short drying time.
Normadur 65 HS can be used in environmental classes C2 and C3 as a gloss and abrasion resistant single coat (DTM) on easily painted steel products such as doors, gas bottles, hand rails, etc. It can also be used as a topcoat in environmental classes C2-C5 on various primers, and as a maintenance coating on old paint surfaces.
