Indian Powder Manufacturers may plan for a price hike.
The major challenges
faced by Powder coating manufacturers in today’s market include competition,
the high cost of energy and strong increases in raw material costs. During the past several
months the prices of raw materials have increased by a substantial amount.
Prices of Polyester resins goes up by 15 to 16%. Epoxy resins may go up
further due to increase in prices of Bisphenol-A. The impact of such
increases will leave practically no options for Powder Manufacturers but to
A number of other raw materials are also on the escalation path. Is it a
distress call? Is this the time to re-evaluate the price structure of powder
paints or will the fear of competition force the powder manufacturer to
absorb this impact? It is the time for responding to these challenges
One of the leading powder manufacturer said," What is more
surprising is the fact that the Indian Powder manufacturers continue to
brave the situation and absorb the price rise. How they are able to do so is
a mystery. As a result of this customer's in India are having a field time.
I feel fear of competition can not force a manufacturer to make cash loss.
Now a very little or no scope is left of absorbing the raw material price
increase. Therefore the prices of powder coating will have to go up
A different picture is presented by a 400 tons per year manufacturer who
feels the larger giants are to blame for this. He said,
We have to follow
the big manufacturer for the price and now the trend is Marpol, Asian,
Berger are either not increasing the price or keeping it low. They
have new unit in tax holiday zone. We can not do that.
IPC feels, it's now time to let
the economy decide the price structure.

PaintExpo Presents the Entire
Spectrum of Industrial Painting Technology
PaintExpo International Trade Fair for Industrial Painting Technology in
Karlsruhe, from the 10th through the 13th of October, 2006 (box) Neuffen,
01.06.2006 - More quality, economy and environmental friendliness –
requirements which show no mercy where painting and coating of metals, wood
and wooden materials, plastics and other materials are concerned. With
PaintExpo, the painting industry once again has a trade fair which offers a
comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the fields of liquid
painting, powder coating, coil coating, paints and pre-treatment. The
international trade fair for industrial painting technology will take place
at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 10th through the 13th of
Roughly 4 months before PaintExpo opens its doors for the first time in
Karlsruhe, 143 exhibitors from inside and outside of Germany have already
registered (as of 26 May 2006). They come from the fields of equipment and
application technology, drying, automation and conveyor technology, paints,
paint stripping, cleaning and pre-treatment, environmental engineering, air
supply, exhaust air and wastewater treatment, disposal, measuring and test
technology, quality assurance, accessories, job-shop coating, service,
training and research. Nearly all of the leading suppliers of painting
technology and important paint manufacturers will be on hand. Jürgen
Haußmann, managing director of event promoter FairFair GmbH, also reports
that numerous exhibitors will present their products and services at very
large booths. Various exhibitors have even doubled their floor space in
comparison with the last PaintTech, allowing them to offer live
demonstrations of their equipment.
Innovative Solutions for Liquid Painting
An important topic for PaintExpo in the field of liquid painting is the
reduction of solvent emissions in accordance with requirements set forth in
the VOC directive. The specified limit values can be adhered to by various
means, for example through the use of low-solvent painting systems, or by
switching to water based paints or powdered enamels. Beyond this, paint
consumption can also be reduced in many cases with modern application
systems. Where the use of multi-component paints is concerned, increased
process reliability, for example by means of dependable and easy to use
mixing and dosing systems, is of prime importance. Smaller and smaller lot
quantities and the ever increasing variety of hues represent a special
challenge for the operators of painting and coating systems. In this case,
system concepts which are consistently laid out for maximum flexibility
assure economic operation and a sharp competitive edge. PaintExpo offers
comprehensive information and solutions for a broad range of topics covering
all aspects of liquid painting and powder coating with regard to systems
technology as well as coating materials.
Reduced Powder Coating Costs
How can efficiency be increased for the initial coat, how can throughput be
boosted, reproducible coating quality be achieved and personnel expenses be
reduced with the help of additional automation – these are some of the
questions which enjoy top priority in the field of powder coating. And the
painting technology trade fair will provide the answers with the latest
developments in powder conveying and application systems, as well as
innovative modular controls which are distinguished by optimised user
friendliness and process reliability. <more>

MUMBAI, JUNE 19:
Goody the tiger is retiring to his den for good. The smiling mascot that has
lingered in public memory for over three decades is being given a farewell
by paint company Goodlass Nerolac.
“It’s a reflection of the changing times,” says HM Bharukha, the company’s

mascot, he confirms.
But Goody is not alone in his journey back to oblivion. Goodlass Nerolac
itself is being renamed Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd, and is in the process of
a total corporate image makeover. A new logo ‘KN Nerolac’ has been launched,
in blue and red colours, a new identity that will span all Nerolac products
in a phased manner beginning August 2006. The change will also be reflected
on the company’s colour boards, letterheads and office signages.

Why the penguin?
took its name from Norwegian mythology and the Jotunheimen moutain range.
Originally our logo was a hammer which Jotun
had stolen from Thor, the God of thunder. During the 1930's the hammer
became a political symbol and was, therefore, replaced by a gigant carrying
Thor's hammer over his shoulder.
gigant looked more like a troll and was replaced by a reindeer in flight
with the Jotunheimen mountains in the background. But it still wasn't right.
It was then that the penguin was suggested, a natural choice given
Gleditsch's whaling background in the Antarctic, and that the penguin is
attractive yet tough. The logo was modernised in the 1970s to bring the
international side to the fore by drawing a globe around the penguin. These
days Jotun's penguin has really gone global and is recognised all over the
the penguin? you may wonder. The stylized image of a penguin is a prominent
feature of Jotun’s logotype and is there for a reason. It appears because
Jotun’s founding father Odd Gleditsch, who started out as whaler ship
supplier, sailed to the arctic seas in the early 1920’s.
There he noticed how penguins lived, saw the way they took care of their
offspring, family and the group in a responsible manner that impressed him
deeply. When Jotun was established 1926, Odd Gleditsch felt the penguin
symbolized the caring and responsible family company values he envisioned.
Today Jotun calls this The Penguin Spirit, which is summed up in four words:
Loyalty, Care, Respect and Boldness And eighty years down the road a
prosperous family company it still is, now with a third generation Gleditsch
as chairman of the board, and still headquartered in Sandefjord, southern
