Danish cement paint chosen for making tunnels safer

Paint from Aalborg White Asia has been chosen for painting all the motorcycle tunnels along major roads in Malaysia. The tunnels are a common feature in view of the large number of motorcycles on the road. The painting was needed in order to enhance the safety in the tunnels by brightening up the tunnels.
     ‘SKIMCEM’ cement paint was selected for a trial for the tunnel along the Federal Highway in Selangor, Malaysia. The trial was successful and subsequently, another 11 motorcycle tunnels were also painted.
     According to Aalborg White Asia Sdn Bhd, SKIMCEM was chosen because of its durability, brightness, and competitive price. In addition, the paint also came with a 5-years warranty. In terms of ‘SKIMCEM’ cement paint application, the tunnel wall was initially brushed and cleaned with high pressure water jet before painted with two coats of ‘SKIMCEM’. The total cost of the painting work was only half the cost of other alternatives. Both the authorities and contractor are very pleased with the results.
     Aalborg White Asia Sdn Bhd is majority owned by Aalborg Portland A/S while the remaining equity is owned by The Industrialization Fund for Developing Countries (IFU).
