Resene & Emirates Team New Zealand
Resene have been providing Emirates Team New Zealand with paint products and accessories for over 20 years. Emirates Team New Zealand favour Durepox which is an epoxy urethane with amazing adhesion to carbon fibre, fibreglass and wood, which can be applied without sanding between coats. While developed as a primer, Emirates Team New Zealand use Durepox as a topcoat as it has excellent water barrier properties and exceptional weather stability. On a practical level, painters admire its fast dry properties and sandability after three hours with no shrink back. Resene and Emirates Team New Zealand often have collaborative R&D programmes, ensuring state of the art products for the team and in turn, state of the art products to offer the global market.
