KCC completed the application of its flagship flooring product, KCC Sensetile, in a library operated by Aramco, the world’s largest state-run oil producer in Saudi Arabia.
KCC Sensetile GS1587C was shipped last May to the construction site of the Dhahran Recreation Library based in Dhahran, and its full application to over 1,000 square meters was successfully complete in early September.
A broad spectrum of designs can be created in a highly sophisticated manner as the product is made of PVC through a high-precision process, while providing great flexibility.
It also allows contractors to create interior spaces tailored to customers’ preferences on design and size by combining concrete, carpets, marble, wood and more. Coated with special UV coatings, it provides solid protection against scratches and contamination.
The Dubai Branch stated that they plan to ensure wider availability across the global market and provide the best quality of KCC’s products
