Becker's Outlook for coil coatings in China

Addressing the 6th China Coatings Markets event in Shanghai in mid-September, Becker Industrial Coatings China M.D. Anders Norling reviewed the "Outlook & Expectations for Industrial Coatings in China" with special reference to coil coatings. Today, there are around 150 coil coatings lines in China. However, a surge in new capacity over the past three years has led to serious over-capacity in the market with consequent price pressures and postponement of further investment plans. This has left little value in the chain, particularly in the low- and mid-quality steel segment. To recover value will require concerted efforts from raw material suppliers, coatings manufacturers and coil coaters. Environmental value will become more important, demanding new technologies such as UV, near infra-red and electron beam curing: water-borne and powder are also possibilities.

Dow Polyurethanes Completes Testing Phase for NOPs
Dow Polyurethanes, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, has successfully completed preliminary development of natural oil polyols (NOPs) for urethane formulations and will begin product sampling with a select group of customers immediately.

The intention is to ultimately develop a NOP-based multi-generational product line that provides customers with solutions to meet their needs in applications such as flexible slab, molded, and some CASE applications. In addition, other Dow businesses, such as Dow Automotive, are working with their customers to introduce natural oil polyols into automotive applications.

Coating Flash
Akzo Nobel's Aerospace Coatings business (ANAC) has announced that it is the first to develop products to contain breakthrough chromate-free technology following the signing of a commercial licensing agreement with the North Dakota State University Research Foundation (NDSU). Researchers at NDSU have developed new primer technology for coating aluminum aircraft structures which is based on magnesium, rather than chromate.

  Powder Coating Manual, Air Management-- (Part - 58)  

The level of filtration for air being supplied to a powder coating system depends on the type of system and the quality requirements of the finished parts. The inlet of the air-make-up should always have a 30% efficient polyester filter bank to catch larger contaminants and prevent them from entering the building. If the discharge of the air handler is into the general plant environment it may not be necessary
to have any additional filtration.

When the discharge is into a walled-off spray room or “clean room” the filtration must be very thorough. Discharge ductwork is used with a series of 90% plus efficient bag filters and a low discharge velocity. The filter frames must be designed to seal the edges so that the air supply cannot pass around the filter. All filters should be monitored and changed frequently enough to avoid putting excess static pressure on the heater.

It is also a good idea to locate the air handler inlet and discharge in a position that is relatively clean to avoid pushing contamination towards the coating line.

Air management is a vital part of any coating system. Without the proper consideration of airflow and air supply the system cannot function properly. Product quality, system efficiency, worker comfort, proper building Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and system maintenance cost is affected by the air volume, velocity and direction. When a powder coating system is designed the plan should include air-handling  equipment to provide uniform heating and ventilation and ensure proper operation of the process equipment.
