Each year, the Sepang International Circuit hosts the Malaysian Grand Prix. The circuit structures are extraordinary with expansive technical and press complexes which encompass 70,000 square meters of protected spectator stands. This structure has stood wrinkle-free and without folds since its debut in 1998 thanks to its Serge Ferrari composite material.
The aesthetic durability of Serge Ferrari composite membranes is due to high performance polymer formulations enhanced with fluorinated treatments. The Precontraint Serge Ferrari manufacturing technology process assures excellent dimensional stability and structural sustainability of the project.
Grand Stand, offering a 53,000 spectator capacity, and of the giant parasols have therefore maintained their remarkable dimensional stability, bright aspect and original colour, despite the extreme climatic conditions and agressive atmosphere (pollution, tropical humidity, UV, etc.).
