Axalta coating protects Ashgabat International Airport from extreme weather conditions

Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA) has provided its Alesta SD or Super Durable line of powder coatings for the façade of Central Asia´s new Ashgabat International Airport,.

Ashgabat International Airport, one of Turkmenistan´s most prestigious infrastructure projects, required a façade coating that would be extremely resistant to weather degradation and that would provide lasting gloss and color retention.

Alesta SD has been specifically developed to provide better color and gloss stability, making it ideal for commercial building projects such as this.

The international airport project, which is valued at an estimated USD 2.3bn, encompasses 30 buildings on a 350,000m2 site just outside the capital, Ashgabat. It includes two passenger terminals, and will be able to serve more than 17 million passengers and handle more than 200,000 tonnes of cargo a year.
