A scientific paper that would change the
One hundred years ago in March 1905, Albert Einstein finished a
scientific paper that would change the world. His radical insight
into the nature of light would help transform Einstein from an
unknown patent clerk to the genius at the center of 20th-century
physics. The adjacent picture shows a groups of great men and
women who along with Albert Einstein built the two great pillars of the human
intellectual achievement of the past century. The "Quantum
Physics" and the "Theory of Relativity".

BIG MISCONCEPTION'S ABOUT SIEVING POWDER ………………
Sieving is only important for very contaminated powders.
Sieving will completely seperate dust from powder.
It is not necessary to sieve new powder.
THE TRUTH :-
When powder is transported from manufacturer to end user it is subject to vibration, and this results in compacting.
Recovered powder absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. Powder particles cling together and create lumps. During spraying this powder does not get effectively charged.
|| Moist powder also results in poor spray pattern & spitting and surging.
Most Powder Coaters do not sieve the powder or they manually sieve only recycled powder! This is wrong. No amount of words can stress the importance of sieving both fresh and recovered powder with a proper Sieve Machine.

During a recent
visit to our Indore Mr Jayesh Ponda of Vijay Enterprises Ltd. appreciated the role of "India
Power Coating" in the Indian powder coating industry. He said its the
first time someone has seriously developed a portal on powder coating
in India. Among other thing he discussed the matters on development of
the powder coating industry India and expressed concerns on the
growing prices of the raw material.
Mr. Ponda further informed about Vijay Enterprises which is a
leading manufacture of powder coating materials (PCM) in India. VIJAY
COAT today stands as a Reliable source of High Quality and Durable
Powder Coating materials at very reasonable prices. Vijay enterprises
was incorporated in 1995 with a view to supplying quality PCMs to
Indian industry. Vijay's manufacturing set up is equipped with best
machines from M/s Buss AG Switzerland who are world's largest
manufacturer of Powder Coating Machines. Vijay has now established
itself and earned a name for its quality supplies and prompt delivery
at very economic prices. VIJAY has multi-locational production
facilities near Ahmedabad in western India and at Silvassa in the U T
of Dadra & Nagar Haveli, 200 Kms off Mumbai. This makes it a
competitive source of PCMs to all customers.
Crude prices effecting margins: Nerolac
High crude prices are
effecting margins of paint companies and Goodlass Nerolac Paints hopes
to sustain margins of 15% in the future.
HM Bharuka of Goodlass Nerolac Paints says that sustaining margins of
15% could be a challenge for the company. Bharuka said, "The price
rise takes place, during inflation you end up making stock profit,
part of the increase in margin is also due to the coverage of the
metal costs, which we have been able to do. It is true that 15% is an
unusually high margin, it is a challenge to hold it. We could be
comfortable with a lower margin and we hope to be able to pass on
benefits to the customers. Having achieved 15% we are hoping to
maintain it." <more>
Color goes out of paints
Mumbai, March 27: The
rising global crude prices are back to haunt the domestic paints
industry. The industry is worried that it will not be in a position to
pass on the increase in input costs fully to the customers, resulting
in margins taking a severe hit.
Apart from the crude price rise, the forthcoming hike in steel rates
is also adding to the industry’s woes. Sources said the small-scale
units are the worst affected as they can neither fully pass on the
increase in input costs nor bring down their overheads costs.
“If the present trend continues, we could see many paints units,
particularly the small-scale ones, shutting down their operations in
the next few months,” Indian Paints Association president Pramod Kumar
Large players like Asian Paints and Goodlass Nerolac Paints, who also
see firm crude prices as a problem, are now concentrating on
controlling costs by bringing down overheads and focusing on operating

Environment Canada gives
ok to green pigment
Magazine E-news - March 3, 2005
Environment Canada has clarified the use of Pigment Green 7 (or
phythalocyanine green) following a brief period of confusion and panic
in January when US manufacturers stopped shipments of the pigment to
Industry sources say US manufacturers misinterpreted regulations
(Prohibition of Certain Toxic Substances Regulations 2003) that limit
the use of hexachlorobenzene (HCB) in Pigment Green 7 and stopped
shipment of the product to Canada to avoid being in non-compliance.
Environment Canada held a stakeholders meeting in early February to
clarify the existing regulation and proposed changes relating to HCB.
Dave Saucier, operations manager at Inortech Chimie, Mississauga, ON,
was one of the stakeholders at the meeting. He says that neither the
2003 regulations nor the proposed 2005 regulations prohibited the use
of pigments containing HCB. The new regulations include reporting
requirements for manufacturers and importers of products containing
HCBs in excess of 10 g/year or in concentrations of greater than 10
