Salman Khan ‘Breathes Easy’ with BergerBerger Paints India tied up with Being Human
Salman Khan ‘Breathes Easy’ with BergerBerger Paints India tied up with Being Human – The Salman Khan Foundation, a registered charitable trust set up by the actor for helping the cause of the underprivileged. The paints major has announced the co-branding of its ‘Breathe Easy’ range of paints brand with the charitable trust as part of the company’s commitment towards environmental safety.

The company labels this range as the Green paint, which according to the company conforms to VOC (volatile organic compound) norms even as per International standards. As part of the co-branding effort, for every litre of the paint sold, Berger will donate Rs. 4 to Being Human. In addition, Berger has committed to provide ‘Breathe Easy’ paint to two schools and one hospital supported by Being Human.
Speaking on this association Abhijit Roy, Managing Director, Berger Paints India said, “We are excited to associate with Being Human for our green paint brand, Breathe Easy. As an organisation, we are committed towards fulfilling our responsibility towards the welfare of society. This tie up is part of our effort to support the cause of providing education and healthcare to the underprivileged. We are looking forward to a fruitful association with Being Human.”<more>

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>

parts2clean - International Leading Trade Fair for Cleaning in Production and Maintenance Processes

ean solutions for the optimized cleaning of parts and surfaces and a lot of know-how

Neuffen – At the 10th parts2clean trade fair being held at the fairground in Stuttgart, Germany from 23rd till 25th October 2012, around 230 exhibitors will be presenting products and services for the optimized cleaning of parts and surfaces in manufacturing industries, maintenance and remanufacturing. Complementing the world’s most comprehensive trade fair in this field, the bilingual (German – English) parts2clean trade forum, which is being held for the first time this year, offers valuable knowledge to enable industrial parts to be cleaned reproducibly, cost-effectively and with a low ecological impact.
In a growing number of industrial sectors, the cleanliness of components and surfaces has become a quality criterion defined by specific, reproducible residual contamination values which need to be attained and documented. With global competition continuing to rise, it has become essential for companies involved in the manufacturing business, in maintenance or remanufacturing to be able to fulfill these requirements in a cost-optimized way and as ecologically efficiently as possible. However, this can only be achieved by implementing solutions which are individually adapted to a company’s needs and capable of carrying out complex cleaning tasks, removing oils and greases, removing burrs, assessing residual contamination or providing temporary corrosion protection. All these solutions and more will be presented by the 230 exhibitors taking part in the 10th parts2clean at the Stuttgart fairground from 23rd to 25th October 2012.
Innovations and further developments in all branches of industry
The world’s broadest trans-sectoral range of products and services will be on show for the industrial cleaning of parts and surfaces made from all types of materials along the process chain. Exhibiting companies from all areas of industry will be presenting numerous innovations and further developments. The focus this year is on solutions which contribute towards improving process reliability, cost-effectiveness and environmental compatibility. In the field of equipment manufacturing, a variety of solutions enabling cleaning systems to be operated with better energy efficiency will be on show, one of which being the first “green” ultrasound generator. Exhibitors will also be presenting innovations for inspecting and documenting cleanliness - tasks which are becoming increasingly important in many areas of industry. Among them, for example, is a compact in-line measuring system which enables residual contamination analyses to be carried out in compliance with VDA 19 during the manufacturing process. The exhibitors also have innovations to showcase in the segments of cleaning media, bath monitoring and bath maintenance, such as detergents based on renewable resources, systems for efficient process and waste water treatment and devices for measuring concentrations in liquids. In addition to this, a further range of innovative solutions will also be presented which ensure that cleaned parts and surfaces are protected against corrosion, preserved and packaged in an efficient and cost-effective way.

Vinythai to build Bt7.2bn chemical plant in China
Watcharapong Thongrung
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>

Titanium Dioxide Rediscovered
In chemistry, Akira Fujishima at Tokyo University of Science, could be in the running for discoveries over three decades up to the 1990s of new uses for titanium dioxide, long used mainly as an ingredient for paint.
Fujishima found titanium dioxide could be a catalyst for producing hydrogen from water when subjected to sunlight and later that water on its surface forms a film rather than the droplets dictated by surface tension.
If the coated surface is upright or on an incline the water runs off and this has led to the widespread use of titanium dioxide as a self-cleaning coating for glass.
It is especially useful for side mirrors on cars but Fujishima also demonstrated it could be used to clean disease pathogens off surfaces.
The technique is even used in Japan to coat paving stones as a way of removing traffic pollution from the environment. (Editing by Rosalind Russell) <more>

Iranian Scientists Increase Efficiency of Pigment Solar Cells
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian researchers succeeded in increasing the efficiency of solar cells by modifying optical properties of titanium dioxide layers coating the fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) glass.

Solar cells that have become sensitive with pigments have more durability and reasonable price in comparison to the silicone solar cells.

"In order to synthesize the electrode, firstly a micron layer of titanium dioxide was coated on FTO glasses through electrophoresis method. Then, the layer was turned into core-shell structures with determined concentrations of TiCl4 and ZnO pre-materials. Next, the desirable solar cell was produced by using pigment and by sandwiching the anode and cathode electrodes, and the properties of the cell were investigated," Dr. Massoud Hamedanian, the head of the research team, said, elaborating on the procedure of the study. <more>

Ask Joe Powder

"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: askjoepowder@yahoo.com 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

Dear Mehdi:
“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.
