The 3.2-kilometre-long canal serves as the final segment
of the Dubai Creek extension, terminating in the Arabian Gulf via
Al Safa, Al Wasl and Jumeirah 2. Dubai water canal is the UAEs
latest attraction and has recently opened.
The application required the system to protect the concrete
piers and foundations which were completely immersed in sea water
to ensurethe structure remained unaffected by corrosion caused by
Pitchmastic PmB's world renowned
Blueshield PmB was selected having proven track record both in
the Middle East and also in other parts of the world in similar
applications such as the Taiwan High Speed Rail link, MTRC Hong
Kong and in the UK Anderton Boat lift another Engineering marvel
completed over 20 years ago.
Blueshield PmB is resistive to corrosive elements and retains
excellent bonding, crack bridging ability and mechanical properties
despite the constant attack from the sea water.
Testing carried out over a 5 year period in the Rhine River,
Germany provided clear evidence that despite the aggressive
conditions, pollutants, temperature differentials, mechanical
impact and microbial attack the
Blueshield PmB system based upon raw materials provided by
Convestro (formerly Bayer) provided excellent protection to
structural steel and concrete components.
The origins of PmB actually dates back to the mid 1960's when the
Bayer raw materials were first used to protect the steel hulls of
Icelandic fishing trawlers. Despite the extreme temperatures,
impact damage and aggressive environments the product outlasted the
These early applications gave Pitchmastic PmB and its clients the
full confidence the
Blueshield PmB system can and will perform in unique
Dubai water canal sections were constructed by Belhasa Sixco and
this followed a number of successful projects where our two
companies have worked over a 20 year period together along with
Pitchmastic PmB's local UAE partner Pegasus Cont Co LLC. These
included Dubai Tram, Ajman Waste water project and Marrayah
