Polyurethane foam systems supplied by BaySystems Pearl used for insulating cold stores in Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.

To guarantee that the cold stores in the world’s tallest building work efficiently, sandwich panels, consisting of polyurethane systems from BaySystems, have been used by the contractors, revealed BaySystems Pearl, Dubai.

BaySystems is the global umbrella brand for the polyurethane systems business of Bayer MaterialScience. The company´s joint venture system house BaySystems Pearl in Dubai supplied TSSC for the production of insulating panels. TSSC, in turn, supplied 4,000 square metres of the panels to the Burj complex, including several outlets in Dubai Mall and the Armani Hotel in the Burj Khalifa.

According to the manufacturers, the insulation material is a rigid polyurethane foam system which offers insulation with state-of-the-art fire protection. Thus, cold losses are significantly reduced even at low-wall thickness.

“The close cooperation between BaySystems Pearl and TSSC is typical for the intensive customer focus of our systems business, which Bayer MaterialScience has been operating globally since 2007 under the umbrella brand of BaySystems,” said Stephan Rosenthal, Senior Country Representative, Middle East, Bayer MaterialScience.

“The long-standing, close cooperation with BaySystems Pearl enables us to provide high-performance, tailormade products for the region’s iconic projects,” added Pasquale Dellapenna, Director of TSSC.

Feroz Saleem, Managing Director of BaySystems Pearl, seconding this view, said, “TSSC has been one of our oldest partners in the region and one of the market leaders in the field of cold stores. We are very pleased to be part of another landmark project with them in the region.”

According to Bayer MaterialScience, based on this success, BaySystem Pearls’s Baymer products have been approved for use in other projects headed by Emaar Properties.
