Asian Paints: Rich colours: Besides strong demand, Asian Paints has also benefited from price hikes
Asian Paints has benefited from Diwali celebrated in mid-October this year compared with early-November in the previous year.

Analysts point out that as households advanced the painting work in their homes, the company benefited, along with the boom in commercial properties during Q2 FY07. However, the company still had to grapple with rising input costs.

As a result, Asian Paints’ operating profit grew 24.1 per cent y-o-y in Q2 FY07 compared with 26.3 per cent sales growth. Operating profit margin fell slightly on a y-o-y basis to 13.4 per cent owing to a 160 basis point rise in raw material costs. The company’s raw materials are derived from crude-based inputs.

Apart from strong demand in the domestic market, the company also benefited from two price increases-one in Q1 and the other in Q2. International sales, especially in the Middle East, grew 25 per cent y-o-y, helping overseas sales account for 17 per cent of its consolidated sales <more>

Asian Paints subsidiary enters into share purchase agreement with Myanmar Economic Holdings Ltd
Asian Paints has announced that Berger International, the subsidiary of the company, has entered into a conditional share purchase agreement with Myanmar Economic Holdings for the sale of its entire holding in Berger Paints Manufacturing Ltd, Myanmar.

Pursuant to the agreement, the consideration payable to Berger International for the sale of said shares is USD 6,00,000 (equivalent to approximately SGD 9,36,420 based on an exchange rate of SGD 1.5607 : USD 1).

The gain for the Berger group from the above transaction will be approximately SGD 0.725 million. Asian Paints (International) Ltd, a 100% subsidiary Company of the Company holds 50.1% shares of Berger International. <more>

Opalz MDF powder coating

Decorative Imaging Pty Ltd has joined forces with two building industry leaders, Interpon Powder Coatings and Carter Holt Harvey, to develop Opalz, a revolutionary coating system for MDF, and become the only company in Australia licensed to use this unique coating process.

Decorative Imaging has utilised the latest technology from Interpon, who have years of experience in developing specialist powder coating, as well as a special high performance MDF board from Carter Holt Harvey, to develop the durable Opalz MDF finish.

The Opalz MDF powder coating process has reliably achieved the three major objectives required for successfully powder coating MDF. Unlike aluminium and other metal substrates, MDF presents a number of challenges for powder coating due to it being an organic material. However, Opalz MDF powder coating fully covers the MDF board, preventing moisture from penetrating the coating and also averting chipping and peeling. <more>

Research continues on soybeans for nonfood uses
Wednesday, November 08, 2006
Many Minnesota farmers are familiar with some of the efforts to develop soybeans for non-food uses. The Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council and the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute have spent money, time and resources promoting the use of soybeans for everything from soy ink, to combine panels, to dishes.
Soy-based powder coating for appliances.
Refrigerators have traditionally been painted with dry paint that relies on petroleum-based resins.These petroleum-based resins need very high temperatures (400 degrees F) to melt and flow and cure on the product. The high temperatures require a lot of energy. Refrigerator manufacturers are also limited to using this technique to paint metal because plastic would melt under the high temperatures. Battelle's soy-based powder coating works at 250 degrees F and can work on plastic, composites and metals. The technology is being licensed to a major chemical company. <more>

Septuplets Celebrate Ninth Birthday

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Many central Iowans remember watching and waiting for the births of the McCaughey septuplets nearly nine years ago. NewsChannel 8's Mollie Cooney went to the children's ninth birthday party in Urbandale.

The family's speaking engagements have all but ended, as well as most of their endorsements. The children's father, Kenny McCaughey, continues to work at a powder coating plant near Des Moines. <more>

Coming soon to a TV near you

Saif Ali Khan and his sister Soha Ali Khan will be seen together onscreen for the first time, not in a movie but in a commercial for Asian Paints. Saif Ali has been endorsing Asian Paints for some years now and in the next campaign, reportedly Soha Ali will also be joining him.

Reportedly, the ad film, yet to be shot, will follow the old formula and will have an emotional story line, the work on which is currently been done.

Sources say the commercial could feature the duo reminiscing about their childhood.

This is similar to an advert the same company made with Akshaye Khanna reminicising while looking at a picture of him and his father on a freshly painted wall. <more>

Visit from  Pune, Maharashtra
Dinesh Sudumbrekar
assistant manager sales Statfield Equipments Pvt. Ltd. visited our office  while on his tour to this area.  He appreciated the role of  our website in the Indian powder coating industry and discussed about the developments  going on in Statfield.

Visit to Nasik, Maharashtra,
During my recent visit to Nasik, Maharashtra. I had a chance to meet several people in the powder coating field. Among them was Prashant Naik, a young energetic man of 26. Informing about his activities he said, " we have started powder manufacturing eight month back with the name Orchid Polycoat. coating solution company, and also involves with distillation of solvents, waxes manufacturing .

Prashant Naik further informed, "We are manufacturing small quantities. All though we are not in competition of bigger players, we can always match customer requirement if they are currently being served by big player & willing to give us a chance. We are giving a quality product. and we keep control of all parameters and perform necessary tests and analysis to give a quality product. The coverage of some of our powders is around 135 sqft per kg. We are not in price competition. Shortly, there will be an ISO audit . Our quality does our marketing for us. Our production is not too high but we are having a production capacity of 150 kg/hr. so we can fulfill orders of bigger volume if needed."
When asked about the name orchid he said Orchids are the largest and most diverse of the flowering plant families, with over 800 described genera and 25,000 species.

Best luck Prashant. You have entered into a business which is very competitive.

I also met people from Kritpton, Berger,  Colourflair, and  Vipul Enterprises. More on that in our next newsletter.

  Powder Coating Manual, Surface Defects -- (Part - 59)  

Surface Defects
Rejects from coating lines can come from a substrate defect, a surface contaminant or a coating material defect. Process controls should be implemented upstream of the coating line to prevent a defective substrate from entering the line. If a substrate is defective and has entered the coating line, it is important to recognize the source of the blemish and not waste time trying to fix the coating process to correct a pre-existing substrate condition.

Dirt on the surface of a coated part is a major concern for all coaters. Dirt may come from the air around the spray environment, from the application equipment or it may be in the coating material. If a defect is from contaminated coating material or manufacturing byproducts that have not been removed by the cleaning process it will be evenly distributed and, if it is an external source, the defect will more
likely be random.

Dirt in a powder coating can be screened out. Rotary sieves or vibratory sieves can be used to filter power fed from the collector module. Integrated screeners can be built into collector modules. Even an all manual operation can screen powder by putting it through a stainless steel screen before loading it into the feed hopper. Powder should always be screened. Reclaim needs to screened to eliminate dust that has entered the booth. Virgin material should be screened to make sure that there are no chips or contaminants in the box. Dirt from ineffective pretreatment can usually be corrected by changes in the process or control of the pretreatment system. Soils that are on the part from the manufacturing process that cannot be removed by a spray washer can usually be tracked to the source so a change can be made to eliminate them.

Air borne contaminants are the hardest to track and eliminate because they can come from so many different sources. Keeping a clean environment around the system is one of the best ways to reduce air borne dirt.

Electrostatically applied powder can entrain airborne dirt and deposit  it on the partsThe list below names some of the common sources of airborne contamination.

1. People – Air sampling of enclosed coating systems has shown that as much as 80% of the airborne contamination comes from the clothing, hair and shoes of personnel.

2. Nature – Pollen, road dust and other outdoor dirt are sometimes brought into the plant through doors, windows and unfiltered air supply systems.

3. The Building – Concrete floors may wear and give off dust.

4. Manufacturing – Mechanical operations in the manufacturing process may generate dust, metal shavings, or wood dust.

5. Process Equipment – The conveyor, the oven, the washer or other operations within the coating line can generate or concentrate dirt that will create a defect.

With all of these potential sources, the job of coating a part with no defects is a challenge to say the least. Here are some ways to help control dirt on coated parts. The level of dirt prevention that an operation adopts is directly related to their quality standards. In many general industrial applications it is not necessary to reach the highest level of cleanliness. However, in automotive facilities or other industries where quality levels are very demanding it may be necessary to adopt all of the following suggestions.

 1. Restrict access to the coating area or clean room to essential personnel as much as possible. Have all entrants to the powder room put on non-lint paper suits, hairnets and shoe covers.

2. Isolate the coating application area from the rest of the plant and supply filtered air to the enclosure that will create a slight positive
pressure in the room to prevent air from infiltrating through the product openings.

3. Have the concrete floors sealed in the area where workers put on their paper suits and in the powder room. Build a vestibule at the entrance to the powder room and add deionizing air in the vestibule to neutralize the workers before they enter.

4. Clean all surfaces in the room as frequently as necessary to avoid an accumulation of dust.

5. In overhead-conveyorized systems, use an inverted box track conveyor  or a sanitary pan under the conveyor. Use an automatic lubrication system with a dry-film, penetrating lubricant and do not over-lubricate. Clean the conveyor and chain components regularly with brushes or water blasting.

6. Filter the return air in the oven by installing a filtration bank in the return air opening of the burner box. Clean oven interior regularly (once a week).

7. One of the keys in controlling dirt is to use good recording and tracking of dirt rejects. Fiber, metal shavings, paper, and dust are examples of types of contaminants. Rejected parts should be recorded and categorized by the type of defect. The source of the dirt should be tracked and eliminated.
