Parylene Coating and Its Application
Parylene is a commercial name for polymers, which belong to a unique
chemical family: poly-para-Xylylene. It is a generic name for a unique
family of polymers used as conformal coatings in protective applications.
The coating process exposes product to the gas-phase monomer at low
pressure. Through vacuum deposition, Parylene condenses on the object’s
surface in a polycrystalline fashion, providing a coating that is truly
conformal and pinholefree.
Compared to liquid processes, the effects of gravity and surface tension are
negligible so there is no bridging, thin-out, pinholes, puddling, run-off or
sagging. And, the process takes place at room temperature so there is no
thermal or mechanical stress on the product. Parylene is physically stable
and chemically inert within its usable temperature range. Parylene provides
excellent protection from moisture, salt spray, corrosive vapors, solvents,
airborne contaminants and other hostile environments. Parylene provides
coating with friction coefficient as low as 0.25 to 0.30.
These coatings are formed by the polymerization of para xylene. Which
deposited on the substrate through vacuum deposition. Thus the coating
obtained is uniform, thin, stress free and having very good mechanical
properties. The coating has got all properties better then the conventional
liquid coatings. The coating is applied on the substrate where protection is
more important then decoration.
Types of Parylenes
The parylene are generally belongs to the polymers of the para-Xylenes and
its substitutions. Some of which are as follows-
The basic member of the poly-p-xylylene series is Parylene N - a completely
linear, highly crystalline material. The other commercially available
members are Parylene C and Parylene D which originate from the same original
monomer, modified only by the substitution of one or two aromatic hydrogen
with chlorine atoms. <Click

BASF increases capacities to meet growing demand
Coatings Flash - March 27,
BASF plans to increase its existing production capacities for butylacrylate
in Ludwigshafen and for acrylic acid and superabsorbent polymers (SAP) in
Antwerp. BASF cites major expansion of its European business as the reason
for the extensions. The capacity of the
existing SAP plant at the Antwerp site will be increased 115,000 to 175,000
metric tons annually. Capacity for the precursor acrylic acid will be
extended as a result. A second plant with a capacity of 160,000 metric tons
is to be built. The additional acrylic acid produced will be needed for SAP
production in Antwerp and will supply additional volumes for Ludwigshafen as
part of the European integrated production system: Expanding the capacity of
the butylacrylate plant in Ludwigshafen will cause increased demand for the
precursor, acrylic acid. The new capacities will be available by 2008.

Berger, Nerolac withdraw appeal, agree to pay dumping duty
New Delhi, Mar 16: Paint manufacturers Berger Paints India and Goodlass
Nerolac, who are facing charges of resorting to cheap imports of titanium
dioxide from China, have withdrawn their appeal against anti-dumping duty
slapped on them by the government.
The two companies had filed the appeal before the Customs Excise and Service
Tax Appelate Tribunal after the Finance Ministry, in April 2004, asked the
firms to pay countervailing duty of 1,227.60 dollars for every metric tonne
of titanium dioxide imported by them.
Titanium dioxide is an essential ingredient in the manufacture of low-cost
"During the course of arguments, the appellant's counsel states that it
seeks permission to withdraw... Appeals stand disposed," Tribunal President
R K Abhichadani said.
In January 2003, Thiruvananthapuram-based Titanium Dioxide Manufacturers
Association had complained to the government against the cheap imports by
the two companies. <more>
Clashing colours? Campaign Logic
Competitors Asian Paints and Nerolac's new exterior paints ads focus on
product benefits. Is that enough?
For a country that’s known for its vibrant hues and its love of colour,
selling paint in India isn’t easy. There’s no clear house-painting season
and once it’s done, home-owners don’t think of a fresh coat for at least
five years. And those are the interiors. Exteriors get a rougher deal — not
just in terms of exposure to the harsh environment and all the heat and
dust, but also in terms of getting their share of attention.
And now you’ve got not one, but two exterior paint brands promoting their
wares on television. Asian Paints launched its minute-long TVC for Apex
Ultima on February 6. And Nerolac’s 30-seconder for Suraksha Advanced also
hit TV screens on the same day.<more>
Widening the brush
K.S. Dhingra of Berger Paints is on an expansion spree. After starting a
powder-coating plant in Jammu last month, the tycoon is now looking to set
up an automotive paint facility at Rewari in Haryana by January 2007. The
unit that will cater to industry located in the North would soon be doubling
volumes at Rewari if the auto industry responds favourably to his moves.
Over and above his expansion plans on the domestic turf, Dhingra will also
be setting up a facility in Russia, which will be his second overseas
manufacturing plant after the one in Nepal. The facility in Kraskadar, South
Russia, for the decorative paints segment is likely to be operational by
July. Dhingra has been exporting his products to the vast Russian market for
the last 10 years now. He claims that Berger enjoys brand recall in the
market and with a manufacturing facility there, conquering Russia should not
be a difficult task for the paints tycoon. Stepping on the gas on both
domestic and overseas fronts, the tycoon is quite bullish about achieving
his turnover target of Rs 1,100-crore rather soon. That’s painting a rosy

Asian Paints sharpens its distribution innovations and customer involvement
In the 1970s, recalls K B S Anand, army jawans would rush to buy black paint
just before an inspection. “They would blacken their shoes with it, even
though they knew that the enamel would ruin them,” says Anand,
vice-president, sales and marketing at Asian Paints (AP).
For the jawans it was a quick-fix method to get through the inspection, but
for the company it was a lesson in packaging.
“We needed to sell the paint in small cans of just 50 ml because they
wouldn’t buy more, and we realised how important packaging can be,” recounts
Powder Coatings Markets in North America 2004/2005-2015
Coatings Flash - March
As one of the mature powder coatings markets, North America has struggled in
recent years to maintain its momentum. In its recently published study,
Belgium-based Irfab Chemical Consultants Scrl states that the North American

No lead related punitive damages
Coatings Flash - March
Sherwin-Williams and two other former makers of lead-based paint do not have
to pay punitive damages, based on a jury finding their products harmed
children, a Rhode Island judge ruled. Jurors decided, however, that
Sherwin-Williams, NL Industries and Millennium Holdings must pay to remove
the danger of peeling paint from homes. Judge Michael Silverstein in
after a hearing that the paint companies" behaviour was not sufficiently
willful and reckless to
justify setting punitive damages. The judge will decide later whether the
companies must remove the paint from homes or seal it to make it safe.
Power Flame's powder coat system to go online in a week
A new powder coat
system developed by Power Flame will have the Parsons plant running more
efficiently and with fewer fumes when it goes online soon.
Dan Mills, vice president of manufacturing, said Tuesday the company plans
to begin using the new system next week.
Powder coating will take the place of traditional wet painting of parts
Power Flame now uses. It is more environmentally friendly because no fumes
are emitted. At the same time, the powder coat line will take four fewer
people and less time to operate than the existing paint line.
The way Power Flame paints its parts now is labor intensive. One person must
hand clean and sand each part before another person paints it. Workers must
then wait for the part to dry before anything can be done with it.<more>
