C8 Lawsuits Filed Against DuPont
DuPont is facing four lawsuits in West Virginia over exposure to a chemical used by one of its plants.

The lawsuits were filed Thursday in U.S. District Court.
The cases are separate from an earlier class-action lawsuit that claimed water supplies in West Virginia and Ohio were contaminated with C8. DuPont uses C8 at its Washington Works plant near Parkersburg. The suits allege that the contamination resulted in cancer and other illnesses that a science panel concluded are linked to C8.

DuPont spokesman Dan Turner says the company will defend itself against any personal injury lawsuits that aren't based upon valid science.

He says such lawsuits ignore family history and lifestyle choices as a primary cause of health problems in specific individuals.<more>

New coating for aluminum developed to replace cancer-causing product; University of Nevada, Reno research team finds elusive self-healing formulation for defense, aerospace

RENO, Nev. – A research team at the University of Nevada, Reno has developed a new environmentally-friendly coating for aluminum to replace the carcinogenic chromate coatings used in aerospace applications. The chromate conversion coatings have been used for more than 50 years to protect aluminum from corrosion.

The team presented their research last week at the international Pacific Rim Meeting on Electrochemical and Solid-State Science in Hawaii.

“It was well received at the conference,” Dev Chidambaram, lead scientist and assistant professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Nevada, said. “There is no question that this will be able to replace the chromate-based coating. Even though the coating formulation is yet to be optimized, the coating has shown exceptional performance.”<more>

Asian Paints’ Third-Quarter Profit Rises
MUMBAI, India – On a consolidated basis, paint and coating manufacturer Asian Paints, Mumbai, reported income from operations grew by 19 percent to Rs 3052.9 crores for the three months ended Dec 31, 2012. That compares to income of Rs 2567.0 crores for the same period in the previous year. The company reported positive growth in the decorative paints business, while the company’s industrial business was impacted by slowdowns in business projects and OEM demand. The company’s international business registered strong growth in the Middle East and Asia

DuPont to double R&D spend in India
MUMBAI: The $38-billion DuPont expects India to be among the top five revenue contributors in the next three-four years as the global growth axis tilts from the West to Asia. At present, India is among the top 10 revenue contributors to the science-based products and services multinational, with emerging markets contributing 38%.

Low-penetration, strong economic growth indicators and enhanced focus on research and development (R&D) are some of the factors that would help DuPont grow faster than the market, its global chairperson and CEO, Ellen Kullman told TOI. The 57-year-old Kullman, who is on a brief visit to India to take stock of the Indian operations, besides meeting the local management and industry leaders, said she would like to set the bar high on growth in India. <more>

ASTM D7803 - 12
Standard Practice for Preparation of Zinc (Hot-Dip Galvanized) Coated Iron and Steel Product and Hardware Surfaces for Powder Coating
This practice describes the methods of preparation of hot-dip galvanized surfaces prior to the application of powder coating. The key to achieving proper adhesion between powder coatings and galvanized steel is surface preparation. The surface must be entirely free from metal oxides prior to powder coating. Any metal oxides that remain on the surface of the galvanized steel can potentially retain air or moisture. Upon heating during the curing stages of the powder application, the oxides may release water vapor or air, which can expand and penetrate the powder coating, causing blisters or voids.<more>

CakeBoxx Technologies Partners with Valspar as Container Coatings Supplier
McLean, Virginia, February 6, 2013 – CakeBoxx Technologies, developer of the CakeBoxx doorless intermodal shipping containers, announced a strategic partnership agreement with The Valspar Corporation (NYSE:VAL) as its coatings supplier for a new line of containers. Valspar will supply a full line of premium paints and coatings, including Valspar Aquaguard, for the new CakeBoxx line of patented, doorless intermodal cargo shipping containers.

“CakeBoxx containers are specifically designed to respond to the evolving market pressures of decreasing margins and increasing security demands,” said Daine Eisold, CEO of CakeBoxx Technologies. “While CakeBoxx inherently addresses these cost and security aspects, this agreement with Valspar will enable us to address the long term serviceability of our products and the growing environmental concerns of our customers by providing an alternative to solvent-based paints. Both Valspar and CakeBoxx are providers of premium products and have the same focus on innovation in our respective industries. It couldn’t be a better fit for us to work together to provide forward-looking solutions for our customers throughout the global supply chain.” <more>

How to Deflect Killer Asteroids With Spray Paint
A fresh paint job might be all that’s needed to prevent a giant asteroid from raining destruction upon our planet.

Though strange-sounding, the strategy would make use of a real-world phenomenon known as the Yarkovsky effect, named for the Russian engineer who discovered it in 1902. The effect results from the fact that asteroids heat up as they bask in the sun’s light.

“The coat of paint would be a very thin, almost like a Saran Wrap layer,” said aerospace engineer David Hyland of Texas A&M, who leads a team that has been studying this method for several years. “If we push it in the right direction, we can get the asteroid to cease crossing Earth’s orbit and completely eliminate the threat.”

Asteroids make fairly frequent flybys of our planet, with one of the latest Earth-grazers being 2012 DA14, which on Feb. 15 will pass closer to our world than some satellites orbit. Though small objects enter the atmosphere all the time, the odds of a large asteroid hitting the planet are thankfully small. There was some concern that 325-meter-long asteroid Apophis could impact in 2036 but recent observations have put the probability of this potentially catastrophic event at less than one in 10 million.

Still, the thought of an ecosystem-annihilating rock from space, like the one that killed the dinosaurs 66 million years ago, is unnerving. Scientists have long thought about ways to mitigate the hazard of a civilization-destroying asteroid and developed many different techniques to deflect any killer rocks, including shooting it with lasers, ramming it with a spacecraft, or blowing up a nuclear bomb on its surface. Now a team of researchers wants to launch a mission to test the effects of painting an asteroid in order to repel it.

The Yarkovsky effect works by changing the amount of light an asteroid gives off. As an asteroid rotates, the surface that has been heated by the sun moves away to face space and radiates infrared photons. Though massless, these photons carry away small bits of momentum from the asteroid, essentially generating a tiny rocket thrust in one direction. The effect is very slight but over time can noticeably change an asteroid’s orbit. By making an asteroid lighter or darker, and therefore changing the amount of radiation it absorbs, we could turn up or down this miniscule rocket thrust. It’s a long haul-technique, requiring years, decades, or even centuries of advanced notice to alter an asteroid’s trajectory.<more>

The second China Charity Festival ended in Beijing on January 24. Its theme was to let the charity become an attitude.

Nippon Paint China, which has a long-held practice of corporate social responsibility, took home three awards at this year's charity festival with their popular "Color, Way of Love" campaign: Best Welfare Innovation, Best Annual Welfare People and the China Welfare Video Award.

The "Color, Way of Love" campaign, launched by Nippon Paint China in 2009, aims to beautify campuses, improve teaching environments and learning effectiveness, and inspire children to dream with imagination. After four years of sustained efforts, "Color, Way of Love" has painted 135 elementary schools in rural areas, established 35 NP HOPE elementary schools and 135 art classrooms, and brought color and imagination to tens of thousands of children. In 2012, two rural art teachers received training provided by the project to deepen their arts education knowledge, and more than 80 art teachers received further training in helping children living in rural areas to see the world as a place filled with vivid colors, hopes and dreams.<more>
