Chromium Clean-up: Honeywell to Pay Millions
Settlement reached with state of New Jersey.

Ford to Clean Up 40-Year-Old Paint Dump
Facing a new HBO documentary on a very old controversy, Ford Motor Co. has agreed to clean up tons of toxic paint sludge that the company dumped decades ago on ground near the Ramapo River, reports say.
The airing of Mann v. Ford, scheduled for Monday, July 18, apparently proved the turning point in a 40-year dispute between the car maker and the region’s Ramapough Indians over the toxic 40-acre parcel in Rockland County, NY.
The car maker has announced that it will dig out more than 6,500 cubic yards of sludge - enough to fill 325 of the largest dump trucks – from the site, according to CBS Radio and The Record of New Jersey.
The land is just north of the auto plant that Ford once operated in Mahway, NJ, near the river and a massive aquifer that provides drinking water to parts of North Jersey<more>

Owner of Burned Paint Plant Faces Fines for Unreported Chemicals
The owner of a Pennsylvania paint plant is facing fines of up to $25,000 a day for not providing authorities with a mandated list of chemicals and substances stored on site before fire struck his facility.
More than 100 firefighters from across the region fought the blaze for more than 10 hours May 14 and 15 at American Biodiesel Energy Inc. and North American Powder Coatings, in Erie, PA.
Fire crews were seriously hamstrung in their efforts, however, because they had no information on file from the businesses about what hazardous substances and chemicals were stored inside the 56,000-square-foot facility. Eventually, crews fighting the fire inside the building were ordered outside because of the danger, officials said.<more>

A former managing director of a Shanghai subsidiary of PPG Industries Inc. has been charged with conspiring to sell epoxy coatings to Pakistan for a nuclear reactor.

Woman accused of shipping paint to Pakistani plant
By DOUGLAS BIRCH, Associated Press – Jul 7, 2011
WASHINGTON (AP) — A former managing director of a Chinese company appeared in federal court Thursday on charges that she secretly exported hundreds of gallons of paint coatings to a nuclear power plant in Pakistan.
Prosecutors say Xun Wang, who pleaded not guilty and was ordered held, exported the high-performance coatings to the Chasma II plant without obtaining the required license from the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Wang at the time was managing director of architectural coatings at PPG Paints Trading, which in December pleaded guilty to exporting high-performance coatings to the same nuclear reactor and agreed to pay a $3.75 million penalty. The company is a foreign subsidiary of Pittsburgh-based PPG Industries, Inc.
The Commerce Department in June 2006 denied PPG Industries' request for a license to export the coatings. PPG Industries officials notified Wang of the decision and said that she and other company officials "must abide by the ruling."<more>

AKZO NOBEL: Anti-competitor behaviour investigation in Belgium
According to the Belgian newspaper De Tijd, the Belgian ‘Raad voor Mededinging’ (Belgian government body that is responsible for antitrust investigations) has raided the local office of Akzo Nobel in Vilvoorde (Belgium) last week, and possibly other players as well, as part of an investigation of possible anti-competitive behaviour in the Belgian decorative paints market. The raid has been confirmed to us by Akzo Nobel.
According to De Tijd, the plaintiff in this case is Durieu (Rieu Investments), which took over the DeKeyn and Linitop brands in Belgium in 2008 as well as obtained a five year license to sell the Sadolin brand in Belgium. The divestment of the DeKeyn and Linitop brands was part of the commitment package Akzo Nobel agreed with the European Commission in order to get approval for the takeover of British ICI. <more>

AkzoNobel planning world class UK manufacturing plant
AkzoNobel, the world’s largest paint and coatings company, today announced plans to build a world class, hi-tech manufacturing facility in the north-east of England, reinforcing its strategic commitment to accelerated and sustainable growth.

The intention is for Slough to remain the headquarters for the UK Decorative Paints business and for global research and development, and marketing.<more>

Facile microencapsulation of HDI for self-healing anticorrosion coatings
Polyurethane (PU) microcapsules containing hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI) as core materials are facilely manufactured via interfacial polymerization reaction of commercial methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) prepolymer and 1,4-butanediol in an oil-in-water emulsion. The resultant capsules have diameters of 5–350 μm and shell thickness of 1–15 μm, both linearly related to the agitation rate in the double logarithm coordinates. The typical core fraction of microcapsules and the yield of synthesis are around 60 wt% and 70 wt%, respectively, while varying with reaction conditions. The effects of parameters including reaction duration and temperature, surfactant concentration, agitation rate, and environmental factors on the formation of microcapsules were systematically investigated and optimized. Quality assessments of each batch of microcapsules were performed using thermogravimetric analysis and scanning electron microscopy. Anticorrosion coatings mixed with synthesized microcapsules were prepared on a steel substrate. <more>

The American Coatings Show & Conference
With 328 exhibitors and some 6,700 attendees from 61 countries, the American Coatings Show & Conference, held for the second time in 2010, firmly established itself as a highlight for the American coatings industry.

Dear Joe,

I hope you had a great weekend with the family and especially the new baby.

I have a question for you coming from a colleague that is having a problem with a powder coater out here. She took a table to them that was rusty in some parts and asked them to powder coat it for her. Well, they did and after a few weeks of wear and tear (I believe they keep it outside) it is rusting again. So, they fixed it for her again, but it is rusted again. Long story short any suggestions on what she should do? I guess the table means a lot to the family and she isn't afraid of the costs involved, she just doesn't want it to keep rusting.


Hi Donna,

Yes we had a wonderful weekend and I hope you had one as well.

The problem with the premature rusting is a combination of two or three issues. 1.) It would appear that the original rust may not have been completely removed prior to the application of the powder coating. 2.) The metal may not have been chemically pretreated prior to the application of the powdercoating and 3.) The film thickness of the powder may be low or in-continuous in areas.
To do this correctly the coater needs to:

1. Clean the metal 100%. I recommend shot blasting (aluminum oxide or silicon carbide).
2. Chemically pretreat the metal before application of the powder. A good jobcoater will have an ironphosphate system that will do a good job if they keep the process in control.
3. Thoroughly coat the table with a high quality powder coating. This sometimes will involve preheatingthe table and spraying the difficult to coat areas while it is still warm. Alternately they can apply twocoats of powder (primer followed by a topcoat). This isn't necessary if the coater is careful in applyingthe powder in the first place.

Please tell your colleague that it's really important to ask her coater about how they prepare the metaland control the film thickness. I hope that this helps.

Kind regards,

Hey Joe,

I had just had a smoker powder coated for barbequing. They coated the inside of the smoker (which they were not supposed to do). At what temperatures is regular powdering coating safe? Are there anyfumes that would be released at any certain temps? I am just wondering about general safety, temps don’t reach more than 300°F in the smoker.
Thanks in advance,


Hi Jerod,

Thanks for the question. Without knowing the exact formulation and its composition I can't unequivocally say that nothing will volatilize from the cured powder. That said I can assure you that the powder coated interior is safe and will not contaminate your smoking process or the products you smoke within it, especially if the surface temperature never exceeds 300°F (150°C). Powder coatings do not generally degrade until around 425 to 450°F (218 to 232°C). Silicone modified powder coatings can typically endure 800 to 1000°F (427 to 538°C).

If possible please let me know more about the powder coating that was used and I will comment further.

Best regards,
