Mapei’s growth in the world of motor sports continues by participating in the preparation of the Petronas Sepang International Circuit for the Malaysian Motorsports. Famous for being the widest circuit of the MotoGPTM Championship, the Petronas Sepang International Circuit is characterised by a series of sweeping corners and two long straights.
In preparation for the MotoGPTM, the kerbs and run-off areas along the 5,543 metre long circuit were coated with Mapecoat TNS Race Track, a waterborne rapid film-forming acrylic colored coating textured with selected fillers.
Thanks to Mapei technology, surfaces treated with this product are more durable and more resistant to slip and will be able to maintain their surface roughness over time, even in wet conditions.
The special formulation of Mapecoat TNS Race Track complies with all the test and safety requirements of FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) and FIM (Fédératon Internationale de Motocyclisme) standards for products used for road markings at race circuits. The ColorMap® automatic colouring system and the extensive range of colours available enable any colour combination to be created.
Mapecoat TNS Race Track has already been used on previous occasions in the racetracks for important international car races, such as the Baku City Circuit.
