Paint for iconic buildings and beautiful homes

Say Paris – and the Eiffel Tower immediately comes to mind. This famous landmark was originally built to last a mere 20 years. Yet 126 years after it was constructed, it remains standing and attracts 7 million annual visitors who want to experience such beauty in this city of romance.

As a global leader in paints, Jotun is the brand selected to protect the Eiffel Tower from the elements. Using 50,000 litres of paint, repainting the Eiffel Tower takes 18 months and is done completely by hand, meaning that the paint selected must be long-lasting, low maintenance yet easy to apply. Jotun’s Mammut Topcoat – a high gloss, high build, fast drying protective coating is best suited to this task. The tower is actually painted in three different colours - specially made with lighter shades towards the top, so that the tower looks the same colour all the way up against the blue sky of Paris.

Beyond the borders of France, many other iconic buildings around the world, including the Burj Khalifa (UAE), Petronas Towers (Malaysia), Marina Bay Sands (Singapore) and the Vattanac Tower (Cambodia) have also been painted with Jotun paints. Keeping these iconic symbols alive requires reliable protection from a trusted brand with a proven track record.

In Cambodia, high performance anti-corrosion coatings from Jotun has been used on petroleum oil storage tanks and pipelines, steel structures and tank supports in beverage factories, and foundations of bridges, such as the Neak Loeung Bridge. They have also been painted over 6,000 square metres on four steel railway bridges between Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville.

In addition, Jotashield Extreme comes with 2X UV Protected Colours, which allows a house to stay brighter for a longer period of time and reduces overall costs because there is no need to repaint frequently. In the long run, Jotashield Extreme offers a greater value than conventional paints.
