Styron supplies polycarbonate for new Doha international airport

May 05/2011

(Styron) -- The new Doha International Airport which is currently being built in the middle of the desert is scheduled to open for business in 2011. It will handle 50 million passengers a year.

Leading independent polycarbonate extruder Plastic Materials Industry dott. Gallina proved to be the ideal materials supplier for the project, with extensive experience of producing multi-wall sheet and panel systems in a range of designs and colors.

Using Styrons Calibre 302 resins, Gallina developed a UV-protected multiwall polycarbonate facade with the high thermal insulation properties (U-value of 0.5 W/m2K) needed to keep temperatures within the hangar under control. The sheet was used in the companys arcoPlus 626 modular system, formed of co-extruded six wall polycarbonate panels 20mm thick and with 600mm modular width, which are designed to withstand wind load forces.

A stunning visual effect was created by installing dual color polycarbonate sheets in the system. Using Styrons Calibre 302 resins, Gallina combined a clear tint for the outside facing and a blue tint for the inside facing.
