When will DuPont pay up?
More than a year after DuPont announced that it would reimburse homeowners for damage caused by its herbicide Imprelis, Janet DaPrato is still waiting. She and others have now spent two summers gazing at brown skeletons where healthy trees once stood.
“We have not heard anything yet,” said DaPrato, who said Imprelis damaged six trees at her Northwest Side home. “I really don’t care as much about the money. I just want to change my trees out.”
Homeowners and landscapers worry that time may be running out. If they don’t receive payment soon, they will miss the fall planting season.
“Our clients are getting fed up,” said Mark Wehinger, a partner in Environmental Management Inc., a Dublin landscaper. “Why is this taking so long?”<more>

Vinythai to build Bt7.2bn chemical plant in China
The Nation September 21, 2012 1:00 am
Vinythai Plc plans to invest Bt7.2 billion to build an epichlorohydrin plant in China as part of its drive to double its total annual production capacity of the compound to 200,000 tonnes by mid-2014, board chairman Roger Lester Kearns said.
Vinythai produces and markets a wide range of PVC resins as well as caustic soda for customers across Asia. Epichlorohydrin is a highly reactive compound used in the production of glycerol, plastics, epoxy glues and resins, and elastomers. Epoxy resin is used as a coating to prevent rust in electronic products, automobiles, aeroplanes and wind turbines used to produce electricity.
Kearns said the plant would use Epicero technology to produce 100,000 tonnes of the compound a year. Investment will be complete by the middle of 2014. The company spent Bt4.5 billion to build an epichlorohydrin plant with production capacity of 100,000 tonnes a year in Thailand last year. The local plant will start to operate at full capacity in 2013.
"Our investment will support demand growth in China and the Asean market," he said.<more>

"Ask Joe Powder"
"Ask Joe Powder" is a question and answer column authored by Kevin Biller of the Powder Coating Research Group. Mr. Biller has over 30 years experience formulating and manufacturing powder coatings. He welcomes your questions regarding powder coating technology. Please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org or post your question through the your facebook id http://letsfinishit.com/askjoe.htm
Dear Mr. Joe:
What is super durable powder coating?
Mehdi Barabadi– Iran
“Superdurable” refers to a specific type of polyester resin (it can be carboxyl or hydroxyl functional) that has superior UV durability compared to standard polyester resins. These superdurable resins contain a high level of isophthalic acid as opposed to terephthalic acid. The high content of IPA provides up to 5 years durability in south Florida. Some clearcoats based on this technology have surpassed 8 years in south Florida.
A few powder coating manufacturers have adopted the description "superdurable" to their powder product lines. A universal definition has not been established, but it is very important to understand that the ultimate durability of the powder coating not only involves the resin but also all the other components in the formula: pigments, fillers, additives, etc. A powder based on a superdurable resin will still fail in less than 5 years exposure in Florida if a non-durable pigment or additive is present in the formula. It is most important to specify which durability standards are met by a particular powder coating rather than assume a description like "superdurable" means the product meets a specification.
