Dunkin' Donuts ditches titanium dioxide – but is it actually harmful?

In response to pressure from the advocacy group As You Sow, Dunkin’ Brands has announced that it will be removing allegedly “nano” titanium dioxide from Dunkin’ Donuts’ powdered sugar donuts. As You Sow claims there are safety concerns around the use of the material, while Dunkin’ Brands cites concerns over investor confidence. It’s a move that further confirms the food sector’s conservatism over adopting new technologies in the face of public uncertainty. But how justified is it based on what we know about the safety of nanoparticles?

Kronos chemical leak: Evacuees allowed to return home
Titanium tetrachloride leak caused release of hydrochloric acid into Varennes, Que., atmosphere
People who were evacuated from their homes on Saturday were allowed to return home following a chemical leak at the Kronos plant in Varennes, Que., just southeast of Montreal.

Officials first learned of the leak at 10:15 a.m. ET on Saturday.

Kronos chemical leak puts acid cloud over Varennes, Que.
They swiftly evacuated homes and factories within one kilometre of the plant on Marie-Victorin (Highway 132), and closed the highway in both directions. A confinement order was also issued for people in the vicinity but living outside of the security perimeter.

Kronos makes pigments for paint and other chemical products. Titanium tetrachloride is commonly used to produce titanium dioxide — a paint pigment. <more>

Thursday, March 19, 2015 - Islamabad—The Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) has imposing a penalty of Rs. 1 million on a paint company, Jotun Pakistan (Pvt) Limited, for violation of Section 10 of the Competition Act, 2010, while promoting its products. A statement issued by the Commission here Wednesday said that order was passed by a bench comprising Mueen Batlay, Dr. Shahzad Ansar and Ikram Ul Haque Qureshi, Members CCP.

CCP initiated an inquiry after receiving complaints from Akzo Nobel Pakistan Limited and Diamond Paint Industries (Pvt.) Limited alleging that Jotun was running a deceptive marketing campaign for its paint products in which it claimed to be ‘No. 1 Paint’ without having reasonable basis. CCP’s inquiry report found that the claim “No. 1 Paint” publicized by Jotun in its marketing campaign was prima facie in violation of Section 10 of the Competition Act, 2010.<more>

Latest report on coated fabrics industry to 2018
US demand to rise 3.8% annually through 2018

Demand for coated fabrics in the US is projected to advance 3.8 percent per year to 725 million square yards in 2018, an acceleration from sluggish gains posted during the 2008 to 2013 period. Rebounding construction expenditures will provide opportunities for coated fabrics used in products that are closely tied to building activity, such as wall coverings, furniture, and awnings and canopies.

In value terms, demand for coated fabrics is forecast to increase five percent per year to $4 billion in 2018, benefiting from an acceleration in area demand as well as moderate price increases. However, pricing gains will be limited due to increased competition from lower cost imports.<more>

New paint makes tough self-cleaning surfaces
A new paint that makes robust self-cleaning surfaces has been developed by a team led by UCL researchers. The coating can be applied to clothes, paper, glass and steel and when combined with adhesives, maintains its self-cleaning properties after being wiped, scratched with a knife and scuffed with sandpaper.
Self-cleaning surfaces work by being extremely repellent to water but often stop working when they are damaged or exposed to oil. The new paint creates a more resilient surface that is resistant to everyday wear and tear, so could be used for a wide range of real-world applications from clothing and cars, say the researchers.

First author Yao Lu (UCL Chemistry), said: “Being waterproof allows materials to self-clean as water forms marble-shaped droplets that roll over the surface, acting like miniature vacuum cleaners picking up dirt, viruses and bacteria along the way. For this to happen, the surface must be rough and waxy, so we set out to create these conditions on hard and soft surfaces by designing our own paint and combining it with different adhesives to help the surfaces withstand damage.”

The study, involving researchers from UCL, Imperial College London and Dalian University of Technology (China) and published today in Science, shows how the new paint made from coated titanium dioxide nanoparticles can give a wide-range of materials self-cleaning properties, even during and after immersion in oil and following damage to the surface.<more>

Chameleon reorganizes its nanocrystals to change colors
The chameleon reorganizes its nanocrystals to change colorsMany chameleons have the remarkable ability to exhibit complex and rapid color changes during social interactions. A collaboration of scientists within the Sections of Biology and Physics of the Faculty of Science from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, unveils the mechanisms that regulate this phenomenon.

In a study published in Nature Communications, the team led by professors Michel Milinkovitch and Dirk van der Marel demonstrates that the changes take place via the active tuning of a lattice of nanocrystals present in a superficial layer of dermal cells called iridophores. The researchers also reveal the existence of a deeper population of iridophores with larger and less ordered crystals that reflect the infrared light. The organisation of iridophores into two superimposed layers constitutes an evolutionary novelty and it allows the chameleons to rapidly shift between efficient camouflage and spectacular display, while providing passive thermal protection.<more>

Expansion for 6th Leading International Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology from 19 through 22 April 2016 in Karlsruhe

Strong Demand for Booth Locations at PaintExpo 2016 and 2017

Oberboihingen, October 2014 – 18 months before the trade fair opens, more than 175 companies from 12 countries have already made firmbookings for their booth locations at PaintExpo 2016. As a result, approximately 50% of all exhibition floor space occupied at the event in 2014 has already been booked. The international trade fair for industrial coating technologies to be held in April 2017 due to the schedule change to the odd-numbered years is also right on course: roughly 80% of the companies have decided to participate both years. “Even we ourselves have been a bit surprised, and of course pleased with the strong demand for booth floor space at this early point in time. The fact that many companies have not only booked booth floor space for PaintExpo 2016, but rather for 2017 as well, is especially encouraging. As a result of the schedule change to the odd-numbered years, the leading international trade fair will take place after just one year in 2017”, explains

Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of event promoters FairFair GmbH. Practically all of the market and technology leaders from the various fields of industrial coating technologies are amongst the 175 companies who are already included in the exhibitor list. It’s no wonder that PaintExpo has established itself as the number one information and procurement platform  for users around the globe. This is also made apparent by the visitor numbers at PaintExpo 2014 which increased by 14.2% to a total of 9167. 26.6% of the expert visitors came from outside of Germany – from a total of 70 countries. “PaintExpo has evolved into the unequivocal meeting place for the industry sector. The audience has once again become more professional and international, and even more visitors have attended  PaintExpo. We’re already looking forward to PaintExpo 2016”, reports Martin Weidisch from marketing at J. Wagner GmbH – one of the companies who have already made firm bookings for floor space at the leading international trade fair in 2016, and are thus enjoying a full range of options with regard to booth location. Amongst other companies, this is also being taken advantage of by US manufacturer of UV-LED curing technology, Phoeson Technology Inc., as well as Lesta S.R.L. from Italy, who both participated at the leading trade fair for industrial coating technologies for the first time in 2014. 18 months before the trade fair opens, the companies who have already registered for PaintExpo 2016 will occupy roughly 6,300 square metres (67,812 sq. ft.) of floor space, which amounts to about 50% of all occupied floor space in 2014. And roughly  40% has already been firmly booked for PaintExpo 2017.

Market-Oriented, Representative, Forward-Looking Offerings
“We’re expecting further growth of visitor numbers once again in 2016”,says Jürgen Haußmann. This is indicative of the fact that users in various regions around the world are faced with different, but nevertheless generally increasing requirements. These include higher levels of quality and increased productivity, as well as more flexibility and sustainability. Beyond this, the use of new materials, for example lightweight components made of fibrous composite materials, as well as utilisation of various materials within a given finished product, are presenting in-house painting operations and coating job-shops with new challenges. This results in investment needs for in-house painting operations around the globe, because these requirements can only be fulfilled through the use of technical innovations. And these are presented by the exhibitors at PaintExpo in a diversity which is unparalleled anywhere else in the world, and cover the entire process sequence for liquid painting, powder  coating and coil coating. The exhibition programme encompasses liquid painting and powder coating systems, application systems and spray guns, liquid paints and powdered enamels, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, pneumatics, compressed air supply and exhaust purification,  water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services and technical literature. Beyond this, downstream process steps such as printing and packaging are covered as well. The same programme will be showcased at the 3rd trade fair for industrial coating technology in Istanbul, Turkey, from the 15th PaintExpo Eurasia, through the 17thmutually by FairFair GmbH and Artkim Fuarcilik.

Further information and a preliminary exhibitor list can be accessed at of October, 2015. The Turkish offshoot will be promoted

Parts cleaning: as clean as necessary, as efficient as possible– Increasing quality and efficiency with optimal cleaning solutions– parts2clean presents the latest technology and trendsStuttgart/Hannover, Germany. Cleaning parts and surfaces costs money – just how much money depends on the required result. Whether the job is simple degreasing or rather cleaning to meet strict technical requirements, achieving the necessary quality quickly, reliably and economically involves factors which go beyond the cleaning method used, including the selection of the proper cleaning media and containers and subjects like bath maintenance and packaging of the cleaned parts. You can explore all these aspects at parts2clean at the Stuttgart exhibition center from 9 to 11 June 2015.

“Whether we’re talking about the automotive industry and related suppliers, medical equipment, aeronautics, precision engineering, optics or electronics –today virtually every sector has strict requirements for component cleanliness, and this places significantly higher demands on cleaning,” says Olaf Daebler, in charge of the parts2clean show at Deutsche Messe. To play it safe, an “as-clean-as-possible” approach is frequently taken, which has an impact on cost and therefore on competitiveness. The remedy is to take a suitable cleaning approach that meets all requirements and to optimize cleaning results while reducing costs. “As the flagship trade fair for its sector, parts2clean presents a comprehensive scope of products and services that address every aspect of  industrial parts cleaning, from systems and media to bath maintenance, analytics for cleanliness control, corrosion prevention, protection and packaging,” explains Daebler.

Fine-tuning cleaning processes for reliability and efficiency Wet chemical cleaning processes are the method of choice for the majority of  industrial cleaning tasks. Here the dissolving capacity of the chosen cleaning media has a decisive impact on operating costs, quality and the stability of the cleaning process. The core principle that applies to media selection is “like dissolves like.” This means that solvents are normally used to remove oil- based (non-polar) contaminants such as cutting oils, grease and wax. Aqueous cleaners are generally used to remove water-based (polar) contaminants such as cooling and lubricating emulsions, polishing  compounds, additives, salts, abrasion and other solids. Modified alcohols with balanced oil- and water-solubility are able to remove both non-polar and polar contaminants.

There is no magic formula for matching cleaning processes or system and  process engineering to a particular scenario. They must be developed with a view to the overall manufacturing process. The following factors play a role:
What materials are being treated? At what point in production do the parts get contaminated, and with what? Must this contamination be removed immediately, e.g. to ensure proper results in the next processing step? Does processing involve a variety of materials that can lead to cleaning problems if  they are mixed? Does the cleaning of parts made of various materials such as aluminum, steel, titanium, carbide or ceramic create a risk of cross-contamination in the given facility? The answers to these questions can be used to arrive at a cleaning solution capable of optimizing both costs and results.
The parts basket or workpiece carrier also has a major impact on the cost and quality of the cleaning process. Effective filtration and separation systems such as oil separators, particle filters and membrane filters, as well as water treatment and in the case of solvents distillation capacity, also help to prolong bath service life and reduce disposal costs. For water-based media, continuous monitoring of cleaning agent concentration ensures that baths are not changed too quickly due to safety concerns, but instead only when  insufficient component cleanliness can lead to problems in subsequent process stages.

Component and surface cleaning know-how
As the only trade fair in the world focusing exclusively on industrial parts and  surface cleaning, parts2clean not only reflects today’s market in its entirety, but also offers lots of added value in terms of its parallel three-day forum. Lectures on a wide variety of industrial parts and surface cleaning topics will be simultaneously translated (German-English/English-German).

Deutsche Messe surface technology fairs : upcoming dates
The next surface technology fair in Germany is SurfaceTechnology at  HANNOVER MESSE from 13 to 17 April 2015. The next parts2clean is scheduled from 9 to 11 June 2015 in Stuttgart, Germany. O&S and parts2clean 2016 are planned to run from 31 May to 2 June. Upcoming fairs abroad with a surface technology component are SurfaceTreatment EURASIA  with a parts2clean pavilion from 12 to 15 February 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey, and also the very first Surface Technology NORTH AMERICA (parallel to IMTS) from 12 to 17 September 2016.
