Ajman University students receive training from Caparol Paints experts
Dubai – September 05, 2018: Caparol Paints, a global provider of German paint and coating solutions, provided professional training to a group of 15 Architects and Interiors stream students of Ajman University in infrastructure painting system as part of the Solar Decathlon Middle East (SDME) competition.
The team of 15 students under the name “Team Aqua Green” received training lessons from experts at Caparol in innovative painting systems using Caparol’s latest range of products. They were also taught the practical lessons on how to paint their houses by themselves. Brand experts also provided information on sustainability and sustainable paints.
The SDME was created through an agreement signed between Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and the Department of Energy of the USA, in June 2015, to organize a sustainable solar houses competition in Dubai this year. It is an international competition where students from universities are requested to design and build a solar sustainable zero CO2 emissions house. They are then expected to dismantle the house and move it to the location of the exhibition in Dubai this year. The global competition witnesses 18 teams from 13 countries and 32 universities competing across 10 contests.
Caparol provided an excusive training session to all members of Team Aqua Green, encouraging them to understand the art of painting on their own in an easy way. It helped the students to know different painting techniques, types of paints and Caparol’s vast range of interior and exterior paint emulsions that are suitable for different weathers and environments,
