India's Powder Manufacturing capacity
Many of our subscribers be surprised to see a tabular analysis instead of a
regular pie chart which appeared
regularly at this space in this month every year.
There has been a change in policy matters of some of the major powder
manufacturers around the nation to not to disclose the powder
production figures. Also many of the medium sized powder manufacturers
are extremely reluctant to give away their production figures. The reason
for this iron curtain policy is unknown. This has made our analysis a bit
difficult, and the pie chart meaningless. In the absence of production
figures of some major companies we have decided
to tabulate these figures alphabetically.
With the data we collected during the past few months, it seems that the
total production of powder coatings in India has climbed up to 39,000 tons.
This is 5000 tons more than last years figure of 34000 tons.
to this data collection we had been running an opinion poll on our website
for our viewers estimate of the size of the Indian Market. The poll
results show the shown in the adjacent graph. 35% of the voters have voted
for a figure of 45000 tons.
Despite of all this confusion, the Indian Powder coating Industry appears to
be dominated by Polycoat
Powders Ltd. It
Produced 5400 tons of powder last year. Polycoat Powders Ltd., is an
associate company of M/s. Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd., occupying the No.1
position in the powder coating segment in India. Polycoat Powders Ltd. is an
ISO-9001 certified company and is engaged in the manufacture of
Thermosetting Powder Coatings since 1984. The powders are manufactured in
technical collaboration with Kansai Paints - Japan which is among the top 10
Coating companies in the world. The manufacturing facilities for Powder
Coating are at Lote Parshuram in Ratnagiri district, Maharashtra & at
This seems to be
followed by Marpol Pvt
Ltd producing 4940 tons. Marpol is one of the leading
manufacturers of Powder Coatings in India. It offers over 1300 shades of
powders in a range of chemistries, finishes and gloss levels, for almost any
type of interior or exterior application.
Commenting on the analysis Venugopal,VP-Marketing. Marpol said,
In the OEM segment of the
consumer durable &appliances, Polycoat holds the leadership
while Marpol is the undisputed leader in
the Job coating market. Its is now understood that the powder
coating industry has two distinct leaders in two distinct battle grounds."

AK Tripathi of Paramount said
"Your website is often used
by some of the companies for their own commercial use". He suggested
"You must avoid
that. The information provided by sponsors and advertisers sometime
merges with the information provided by your website, and gives an incorrect
impression as if its your website's information. This gives a negative
impact on your credibility.Also the annual powder production analysis you do is often

He further confirmed
"We produced 1700 tons last year. Our OEM and other market ratio now will be
around 40:60 approx."
Ajit Gupta from Rapid Coat said
"Our Production and sales figure for 2006-07 were
2000 tons of epoxy -polyester
and 750 tons of plastic powder."
Kuldeep Verma of Sharp Coating in Faridabad confirmed a figure of 420
tons. From Titan Paints and Chemicals Ltd Manmoham Samantra
informed to produce 990 tons while Sambhiaya of Trident in his
telephonic talks said " We made
around 120 tons. Our presence is basically in South India
Jayesh Ponda from
Vijay Enterprises informed
"We did 775
tons last year. Most of our supplies are through distributor".
To get an estimate of the total figure we had to add an estimated value of
the rest of the manufacturers
which totals up to
39,000 tons. We have arrived this figure by adding:
a. Production figures officially declared by the manufacturers.
b. For the companies from which the data was not available, we assumed it
being the same as last year.
c. For those who have given us no clue, we have depended on third party
Mukul Bhore of DOW chemical mentioned earlier that approximately 10,000 tons of epoxy was used
last year for producing the powder coatings . DOWs
contribution is about 10 percent. "We are aiming it to be 50 %" he
suggested that India Powder Coating should try to collect further details of
the powder consumption like the amount of powder used for refrigerators
washing machines air conditioners etc. The will give a correct growth
He further suggested that data about the Pipe Coating market, which is about 10 percent of the
epoxy market. should also be incorporated in the analysis.

and Ms Liu Zexi from Asia Coat informed in her email,
"In China, our figure
is 510,000 ton in 2005 and we are doing statistic works about 2006
now". This figure is about 15 times more than the Indian Production. Further more some
of the Chinese white goods giants produce their own powder. Our sources
indicate, Haier, China, a producer of household appliances make about
7,000 tons of powder per year for there own use. This is more that India's No 1 Powder

Jotun Promotes Safety And
Environmental Awareness On World Environment Day
Belle Chasse, LA - Jotun, a leading producer and supplier of paints,
coatings and powder coatings, furthers its commitment to workplace safety
and ecological preservation by celebrating World Environment Day with three
competitions aimed at promoting environmental and safety awareness among
employees and their families. The only paint manufacturer which is a member
of the Emirates Green Building Council, Jotun’s ecological initiatives
include a comprehensive recycling program which has enabled it to avoid
toxic leaks into the environment and reuse 9.6 million liters of its waste
water and 63,000 liters of its waste solvents last year.
The company awarded the winners of the ‘Poster’, ‘Slogan’ and ‘Locate &
Control the Hazard’ competitions during its World Environment Day
celebration yesterday, which was boosted by the presence of Mr. Redha Salman,
Head of Environment Protection and Safety Section of Dubai Municipality. In
addition to taking part in various activities, employees and their families
also had the opportunity to view the winning entries, which were on display
during the event.
Entries to the three contests were pre-judged and winners were declared at
the awarding ceremony. The poster competition was open only to school-age
children of employees, who had to highlight conservation of natural
resources, his/her role in pollution prevention and control and global
environmental issues with their choice of media, which were supplied by
Jotun. Aimed at raising safety awareness, the Locate & Control the Hazard
competition required participants to identify the hazard in the work area,
create and implement a corrective action plan and highlight the positive
results. <more> Defence firm gives warships ‘green’
coat of paint
Comment Warships might be the last thing you'd expect heralded as
environmentally friendly, but defence firm BAE Systems is claiming exactly
Changing the way they have painted the Type 45 anti-air warfare destroyer,
Govan-based BAE Systems have saved tens of thousands of pounds and enough
paint to cover 12 football pitches.
Solvent-based paint has been replaced by a powder-coating process for
component parts of the ship, cutting down the amount of solvents emitted
into the atmosphere.
At the same time, water and epoxy-based paints are being used instead of
solvent based ones for other parts of the ship, leading to greater levels of
recycling. This has cut the levels of landfill waste they produce by 326
tonnes a year.
As a result of the changes, BAE Systems are saving 12,600 litres of paint in
the Type 45 programme alone and have reduced emissions by 10 tonnes a year.
Their efforts have earned them Business Commitment to the Environment UK
Best Practice Award.
"This new method not only saves us time and money but is also more
environmentally-friendly, which is a huge bonus," said Fred Stephenson, BAE
Systems surface fleet solutions outfit manager. He added: "The days of
workers using a tin of paint and brush are long gone." <more>

Lloyd's Register and International Paint join forces to support shipyards in
Coating Flash June 04 2007 Lloyd's Register and International Paint have
teamed up to offer shipyards in China step-by-step advice on how to prepare
to meet the requirements of the new Performance Standard for Protective
Coatings (PSPC) as the industry looks to increase vessel safety and
lifecycles by preventing corrosion. This new partnership has been offering
interested Chinese shipyards a free consultancy, or "gap analysis" survey,
comparing their current processes for coating a ship's water ballast tanks
to those that will be required under the PSPC regulations adopted late last
year by IMO, the International Maritime Organization. To date, Lloyd's
Register and International Paint (IP) have completed "gap analyses" for four
of China's biggest private and state-owned shipyards and have agreements in
place to extend this service to many other leading yards in the country.
Many yards in Korea, for example, have already begun accepting PSPC-compliant
contracts for new vessels. And while ships have yet to be built to the new
PSPC regulations, some yard executives believe the process may add 10% to

<video> Art expert puts broken eagle
under careful eye
Margaret Little (left), a conservator at Winterthur, takes a look at the
shattered eagle with Lorraine Dion, Middletown's Main Street program
MIDDLETOWN -- An art expert Friday inspected Middletown's broken eagle, a
town icon perched for nearly a century atop a World War I monument in
Cochran Square that crumbled during a recent restoration attempt.
Town employees drove Margaret Little, an objects conservator at Winterthur
Museum, near Wilmington, to the town's water department on Lake Street where
a foreman showed her the partially reconstructed eagle and a box of pieces.
Little's prognosis: the eagle needs "an awful lot of repair," and a
reconstructed statue may not fare well in the elements.
"You do have enough parts and you might be able to put it back together, but
whether or not that would be able to stand what's going on in the outside
atmosphere is another question," said Little.
The eagle shattered about a month ago when the town had the monument
powder-coated, a process like painting that
would have baked on a brilliant gold sheen.
The eagle apparently had been broken and soldered together years ago. Before
the eagle was to be powder-coated, it was prepped in an oven, where it fell
to pieces. <more>
Sherwin-Williams, Paint Makers
Win Lead Suit Ruling (Update4) June 15
(Bloomberg) -- Sherwin-Williams Co., DuPont Co. and other former makers of
lead-based paint won dismissal of a suit by cities and counties in New
Jersey claiming the companies' products endangered public health.
The New Jersey Supreme Court said municipal and county officials can't sue
paint manufacturers for creating a public nuisance with their lead-based
coverings because state law doesn't give them the right to do so. Shares of
Cleveland-based Sherwin-Williams, the largest U.S. paint maker, rose 2.3
percent. Wilmington, Delaware-based DuPont rose 1.9 percent.
``It's a very unfortunate day for the lead-poisoned children in New
Jersey,'' said Fidelma Fitzpatrick, a lawyer representing the cities and
counties in the case. ``Children will continue to live with this poison in
their homes while the companies that put it there will continue to turn
their backs on the kids.'' <more>

Xiom Corp. Teams With New
West Babylon, NY - Xiom Corp., manufacturer of the first on-site plastic
powder coating spray system, has announced 50 percent ownership of a new
joint venture, New Bedford Coatings LLC of New Bedford, MA. This new venture
will focus on applying Xiom’s plastic protective coatings on the more than
700 sea-going fishing trawlers in the New Bedford Harbor fishing fleet. The
fleet is a $2B dollar commercial enterprise. Because Xiom’s coatings are
actually a hard plastic, they are more durable and weather resistant than
conventional powder coating and will provide the trawlers superior
protection against the elements at a fraction of previous maintenance costs.
Charlie Quinn, president of New Bedford Coatings LLC, says that “keeping
protective paint coatings on the fleet is a $200M proposition each year.” It
is expected that Xiom’s coatings — solvent-free plastic coatings that are
applied using Xiom’s portable application systems — will go a long way in
reducing that $200M annual maintenance bill. Xiom’s coatings are heavy duty
tough coatings that are designed for maximum protection in difficult
Powder coating primers from
E-Prime powder coating Powder coating is an effective way to achieve an
attractive, durable finish. With a array of colours to choose from, powder
coating can take your next commercial project to a new level.
But to ensure maximum durability of the finish, a little groundwork would
not go astray.
For metal surfaces such as steel and hot-dipped galvanised (HDG) steel, the
first step is to prime, prior to powder coating. This will give the metal
substrate additional protection, improving both the surface corrosion
resistance as well as the topcoat’s final appearance.
Where the surface of the steel has been pitted due to mill scale (an oxide
formed by hot rolling) or from sandblasting, priming can help to level the
surface prior to a topcoat being applied.
Dulux E-Prime powder coating has been formulated to penetrate crevices and
is the ideal primer for sharp profile/edges or complex metal shapes. It can
be used as a sandable filler for small surface imperfections and to provide
additional film thickness for improved corrosion protection.
Zincshield 2 is a zinc-rich epoxy powder coating specifically designed to
inhibit rust, with strong intercoat adhesion properties. Comprising 60% zinc
dust, Zincshield 2 is ideal for areas subject to high corrosion including
marine and industrial environments.<more>

Powder Coating Manual, System Maintenance (Part -
Overall system maintenance affects worker comfort, productivity, product
quality, and operating cost. The least expensive and most effective
maintenance of a coating system is a formalized planned maintenance program.
Planning what will be done, who will do it, what resources
they need to do it with and committing the time and resources to the task is
the correct way to keep the system running well. Fixing things
when they break is the most expensive and least effective way to operate a
Throughout this manual there are references to specific maintenance
practices and the importance of keeping the system in good working
condition. There are often situations where systems are not properly
maintained and excuses are offered; ”… we are too busy to take time
out for maintenance,“ ”… management does not supply us with parts or time
for maintenance.“ In reality, there is no good reason for not
maintaining the system. When it is new it runs correctly. When it is used it
will gradually deteriorate. To keep production at the best possible
level and meet quality goals requires a well designed planned maintenance
program that is performed on a regular basis.
Planned maintenance starts with the development of a Standard Operating
Procedure (SOP). Development of a planned maintenance SOP
involves certain steps.
Step 1: What needs to be done? Study the process with these questions in mind;
• what components of the system need periodic cleaning?
• what components of the system need to be replaced periodically?
• what needs to be lubricated?
• what items need to be inspected?
• what items need to be tested?
Step 2: How often? Determine how often these tasks need to be performed in order for the
system to run at peak efficiency.
Step 3: How long will it take? Determine how many man-hours are required for each task.
Step 4: Who will do it? Select the employee(s) who is/are best suited for each task.
Step 5: What materials are needed? List the materials that will be required for each task.
Step 6: When will it be done? Determine when each task will be performed.
Step 7: What tools will be required to do the work? List all of the equipment that will be necessary to conduct the
With the list of what, who, when, where and how the job will be done it is
possible to design a plan, schedule the activities, maintain a supply
of the materials needed and keep the system operating properly. A Standard
Operating Procedure is a document that clearly defines all
aspects of a specific maintenance requirement.
• Safety precautions
• Steps of the process
Like any plan, the maintenance SOP must be monitored for effectiveness and
adjusted if necessary. The following list is the recommended
tasks that are typically required for a powder system and the frequency that
they should be performed.
Other items may be needed in a particular system. It is important to
identify the maintenance items that affect system performance and
schedule the activities for servicing them. In addition to the maintenance
performed by company personnel, it is advisable to have an outside
contractor come in bi-annually to inspect, clean, calibrate and adjust the
mechanical components of the system. A qualified contractor can check all
belts for wear, inspect and clean fan blades, dismantle, clean, inspect and
adjust all burners, inspect the pumps and motors for wear, and test all of
the vital safety and operating controls. This provides an additional layer
of protection from emergency break-down and keeps the system operating at
Summary Do not underestimate the value of good maintenance. Proper attention to
the systems working components can be the difference between
failure and success of a powder coating system. Once a plan is in place and
the work is performed regularly, it takes very little time
away from production and makes production time more profitable.
