Akzo Nobel rejects damages claim by BASF, Basell over EU rules violation
AMSTERDAM (AFX) - Akzo Nobel NV said it rejected a claim that it received
from BASF AG and Basell for alleged damages the companies suffered as a
result of violations of EU competition rules. Akzo Nobel noted that in
December 2003 the European Commission established that several companies,
including Akzo Nobel, violated the EU competition rules before 2000. BASF

Chemical spill drama
AN INVESTIGATION is underway after a solvent spillage sparked an evacuation
of staff working at a Darwen factory.
Fire crews were at Akzo Nobel, Hollins Road, for four hours on Tuesday night
after between 500 and 1,000 litres of a solvent mixture used in the final
paint manufacturing process was spilt. It is thought the tank containing the
substance had overflowed.
Around 12 firefighters wearing breathing apparatus worked from 6.30pm to
clean up the spillage using 150 bags of absorbent materials to clear the
substance from the Crown House building. <more>
Powder coatings supplied by Akzo Nobel have been used on the world's longest
underwater gas pipeline, the Langeled, which recently began delivering gas
to the UK. A total of 64 tons of the company's Resicoat® R-743 product was
used on part of the 1,200 kilometer pipeline, which carries gas to the UK
from the North Sea. ( Norway’s Statoil and Hydro are the companies behind
Langeled, which is set to deliver up to a fifth of all the gas consumed in
the UK.) The series of giant underwater pipes—each weighing about 25 tons
and measuring 42 inches in diameter—were laid by a 180-meter long
construction vessel specifically designed to enable the sections to be
welded together before slowly being lowered onto the seabed. <more

ICI faces new year makeover as Dutch rival seeks to apply extra coatings
Akzo Nobel seeks to extend leadership
Coatings industry faces shake-up
Upheaval in the global coatings industry is
expected in the new year when Akzo Nobel begins its long-awaited campaign to
extend its leadership in paints — with ICI the most likely company in its
The British group’s stock soared in November when it announced the sale of
its fragrance unit to Givaudan. The £1.2 billion sale of Quest rids ICI of
the long legacy of debt inherited from its purchase of the fragrance and
flavourings businesses from Unilever, but it also leaves the company,
capitalised at £5 billion, a better fit for a strategic-coatings merger.
Akzo Nobel, a Dutch company, has had its hands tied with the task of
demerging Organon, its pharmaceutical business, but it has made plain its
ambition to expand in coatings. The Organon transaction should be completed
in the first quarter of 2007, allowing Akzo to focus on developing its
coatings business, which boasts Crown, the market-leading consumer brand, as
well as important positions in industrial and marine coatings. <more>
Antibacterial coating service
has no licence costs
UK finishing company offers new service to help improve hygiene standards,
and prevent bacterial infections in a range of industry sectors - without
the added costs of expensive licences or permits
Pickersgill Electroplating's new anti-bacterial powder coating service is
aimed at businesses supplying equipment to healthcare and medical facilities
as well to the leisure and childcare sectors. The coating is also suitable
for use as a surface treatment on kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures and
fittings, washrooms, and catering/ food production areas and appliances. The
coating powder uses technology which actively inhibits the growth of
bacteria and has been independently tested to show its effectiveness against
E-coli and staphyloccoccus aureus.
It is targeted at those manufacturers who want to add an extra defence
against dangerous infections.
The active ingredient is bound into the coating during production and the
coating can then be applied to a range of appliances and surfaces.
Within the healthcare sector, where this technology has obvious
applications, the coating can be applied to ceiling tiles, furniture, beds,
door and window furniture and lockers.
In the leisure and health club industries the coating can be used to treat
furniture, shower cubicles and multi use leisure equipment as part of an
overall programme of controlling cleanliness standards.
Suppliers of products and equipment to the food production sector, where
maintaining the highest levels of hygiene are paramount, is another key area
where this service would add significant value.
Pickersgill's general manager Paul Bertie said: 'There is clearly a market
for this service with so much emphasis currently being put on hygiene and
'It offers an extra level of protection for surfaces used in sensitive areas
where infection can be a serious issue.
'Manufacturers take this problem seriously and demand is growing from their
customers for products that have been treated in this way'.
Pickersgill offers a wide range of finishing solutions in the West Yorkshire
area including powder painting, pre treatment including chromating, iron and
zinc phosphate and blasting.
Electroplating processes include zinc, nickel and chrome plating, anodising
as well as tin and copper plating.
North American Paints and
Coatings Markets Presents a Rosy Picture Following the Housing Boom
December 15, 2006
The declining numbers of new housing starts, raw material price hikes and
increasingly stringent regulations on volatile organic compounds have not
done much to dampen the growth prospects of the North American paints and
coatings market. A surge in demand following the housing boom of 2001-2005
expects to drive the market even during critical periods.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, North American Paints & Coatings Market
Investment Analysis and Growth Opportunities, reveals this market earned
$21.43 billion in 2005 and estimates this to reach $25.45 billion in 2009.
DecoWood - powder
coated alternative to timber
Timber is a popular material for many windows and doors, due to its natural
framing beauty. And people love the look and warmth that timber windows and
doors can add to a home. Therefore, by creating interest and depth, timber
windows and doors are an important and stylish feature in many modern
In many situations, however, the use of natural timber windows or doors is
impractical, particularly when access for repainting or re-treating is
difficult. High bushfire risk areas are also a preventative to the use of
timber, meaning timber windows and doors would be a fire hazard.
DecoWood from Decorative Imaging is an alternative to timber windows and
doors. It is a virtually maintenance-free product that never requires
painting. Unlike timber, DecoWood will never split, warp or rot. The
beautiful and durable DecoWood powder coated finish for aluminium substrates
is manufactured by transferring photographic images of real wood directly
into the specially developed marine-grade polyurethane powder coating from
Interpon Powder coatings.
Interpon Powder Coatings, a leader in powder coatings, have used their
extensive global knowledge and technical expertise in coatings to develop
the polyurethane sublimation powders that are supplied exclusively to
Decorative Imaging. It is this powder coating process that is used in the
DecoWood window and door products to create an alternative to timber.
The DecoWood alternative to timber windows and doors is available from most
leading window and door manufacturers. DecoWood powder coated products are
also an ideal alternative to other timber products such as slats, screens,
shutters and louvers. <more>

Chemical leak and fire at Dupont plant
December 10, 2006
A chemical leak and small fire at Belle's Dupont plant on Saturday sent a
fishy odor over parts of the valley, but no injuries were reported and the
concentrations of the leaked chemical were too low to endanger anyone,
according to plant officials.
Two leaks took place, both involving the same chemical, trimethylamine, a
flammable gas and and liquid that is used in animal-feed supplements, said
plant manager Bill Menke. The chemical, also known as TMA, can cause skin,
eye and respiratory irritation in high concentrations. But the leak was too
small to bring about such health effects, Menke said.
"There should be no health effects" from the leak, he said.
The TMA concentrations were so low at Dupont that, under government safety
regulations, plant workers responding to the leak were not required to wear
respiratory protection, Menke said.
As the leaked chemical traveled away from the plant, its concentrations
would have diminished, he noted.
The first leak took place about 5:43 p.m. and the second about an hour and a
half later, said Menke said. It was the second leak that resulted in the
fire, which ignited because the TMA in liquid form dripped onto a
"steam-tracing line," or a pipe that was being warmed with steam, he said.
The fire was put out within about three to four minutes, he said. <more>
DuPont Cuts Jobs to Invest in Seeds Business
DuPont announced on Monday that it is cutting
1500 jobs from its "low growth" crop-protection and nutrition division and
will plow the $100 million it will save into its "high growth" seeds
business. The company is fighting Monsanto for market share, particularly in
the corn seed market. In that vein, Monsanto's enhanced marketing
capabilities seems to be gaining on DuPont's R&D. Monsanto's share of U.S.
seed-corn sales has grown to 25% from 10% six years ago, while DuPont's has
fallen to about 31% from 38% in 2000. 15,000 DuPont employees work in the
agricultural division, out of a company total of 60,000. Analysts approve
the move, especially in light of the company's competition with Monsanto.<more>
