Opinion Poll
During the last few years our website has made efforts to provide the powder coating community, a complete picture of the powder coating activity in India. The data provided by our website is considered to be a valued and the only source of such information by many national and international organisations.

With the end of another financial year, it's once again time to estimate the powder production capacity of India. The estimated production figure rose from 14,000 tons in 2002-2003 to 18000 tons during 2003-2004. In 2004-2005 the figure went up to 20000 tons. 2005-2006 showed a steep rise to 34,000 tons slowing down to 39000 tons in 2006-2007.

What could be the figure for 2007-08. Please fill in your estimate in thi

Canada to toughen up on VOCs
The Canadian government has announced plans to limit VOCs in three key consumer areas:

• Consumer products, including nail polish, adhesives, caulking, shaving cream
and deodorants
• Architectural coatings, including paints, stains and varnishes.
• Automotive refinishing products, including coatings and surface cleaners used
in vehicle refinishing or repairs.

Over a 25-year period, the government expects to lower VOC emissions from consumer products by 602.5 kilotonnes, in architectural coatings by 506 kilotonnes and automotive refinishing products by 71.2 kilotonnes. The government plans to hire inspectors to enforce the regulations, at a total cost of US$14 million.

One industry representative claimed it will cost the sector several hundred million dollars to lower VOC levels. “(With) exterior deck stains, which people use to do their decks, the VOC concentration they’re asking us to go to is one we think we’re going to have difficulty getting to,” Jim Quick, President of the Canadian Paint and Coatings Association, said. “So, that means they’ll have to re-do their decks more often and that sort of thing. Our question then for government is: if you’re increasing the number of applications, are you actually getting an environmental benefit for that?”

John Baird, the Canadian Environment Minister who announced the plans, acknowledged that lower VOC levels could mean having to paint or stain more often, then said, “it’s up to industry to come up with better products.” (Abridged from Canadian Press, 27 April 2008)

Berger Paints
Berger Paints India, one of India’s three largest paint companies, has tied up with the Italian arm of Becker Acroma, marketing the latter’s wood-finishing products in the country. The product will be marketed under the name of Berger-Becker Acroma.

The company is targeting a market share of 20% of the total wood finishes market in India. “The total (organised and unorganised sector) wood finish product segment in India is valued at around Rs 600 crore. With this new product we are eyeing for 20% market share,” Berger Paints’ Vice-President Abhijit Roy said. “Currently, we will be importing the product from Becker but if there is an increase in the volume then we may manufacture it in India,” he added.

  Safe Powder Coating (Part 2)  
Electrical hazards

3.1 Causes
The main sources of electrical hazard are :
(i) inadequate or defective earthing (grounding) systems leading to build-up of static and subsequent sparking or shock.
(ii) breakdown or overheating of the electrical equipment leading to fire
or shock.

3.2 Prevention

3.2.1 The contact between the workpiece, carrier jigs and conveyor should be designed and regularly tested to ensure an adequate earth is maintained at all times. Jigs should be designed to avoid any unnecessary build-up of coating. They should be cleaned on a regular basis to maintain correct contact. Automatic cut-out or warning systems should be installed, wherever
practicable, to constantly monitor the efficiency of the earthing system between the jig and the conveyor.

3.2.2 Metal objects to be coated should have a resistance to earth not exceeding 106 W.

3.2.3 Floors and other surfaces with which operators can make contact should be conductive and have a resistance not exceeding 106 W. Non-conductive materials can be coated with conductive floor compounds and coatings.

3.2.4 As an additional precaution, all components of the spraying facility should be connected together through an equipotential bonding system. This should include all electrical equipment enclosures, metal floors, ceilings, fences, partitions, and conveyors as well as the
HV generator.

3.2.5 As an alternative to physical earthing of the workpiece, ionising devices can be used to discharge any accumulated electrostatic charges. The device should be sited as near as possible to the work piece.

3.2.6 Conveyors should be designed to minimise swinging of the work piece.

3.2.7 Regular maintenance and cleaning programmes should be introduced to ensure that dusts are not allowed to build up on electrical equipment and that ventilation ducts and cooling fins are
kept clean and unobstructed.

3.2.8 Only the spray gun(s) and associated electrical cables and powder supply hoses should be sited inside the booth. If the siting of other electrical equipment, including the HV generator,
in the booth or adjacent areas is unavoidable, this equipment must meet the requirements of EN 50050 ( handguns )and EN 50 177 ( automatic guns ) and must be dust tight to Standard IPX.

3.2.9 Operatives should wear anti-static overalls, non-insulating gloves and anti-static footwear meeting the requirements of ISO 2023/2024.
