Through Slovakian distributor Valor s.r.o., Nor-Maali Group was chosen to supply the coatings for the expansion of South Korean tire manufacturer Nexen Tire’s factory in Žatec. This investment by Nexen Tire Europe (1,2 billion USD) is the third largest in the entire history of Czech Republic. The factory site area is 65 hectares.
The main contractor for the project was Samsung Engineering. The steel structures were produced and painted in Slovakia by local company, Ingsteel and later erected to form the new production unit. The supply of coatings took place from June 2017 to September 2018. Total painted area of the steel constructions was 90 000 m2.
The chosen coating for this project was Praimex HS TU from our Slovakian factory, a one component quick drying, high-build alkyd coating designed for direct to metal use.
