Those filament-like stains stretching across a rocky terrain? They'reevidence of water. On Mars.
NASA scientists announced Monday that they had discovered the strongest evidence yet that there's liquid water on the surface of the Red Planet, something they've suspected for about a decade. It trickles down hills and canyons when Its’s warm out, and dries up whenit's cold. NASA doesn't know yet where it comes from, but who cares? it's there!

BASF Korea ups use of eco-friendly chemicals
Global chemicals company BASF is seeking to lead the way in increasing the use of less environmentally hazardous materials to manufacture chemical products in South Korea.

BASF Korea said Tuesday that it had become the first in the industry to use a new chemical compound with a superior environmental profile to produce its flagship insulating polystyrene foam Neopor.

The German firm now produces Neopor using a newly-developed polymeric flame retardant, instead of hexabromocyclododecane or HBCD, a more toxic flame retardant typically used to produce polystyrene-based insulating foams and textiles.<more>

PPG liable for pollution from Pennsylvania plant
FORD CITY (AP - A federal judge ruled this week that PPG Industries Inc. is liable under environmental laws for decades of pollution in the Allegheny River from its old glass manufacturing waste dump site in western Pennsylvania.
Judge Robert Mitchell's decision is a victory for environmental groups that contended waste from the Ford City plant violated the state's Clean Streams Law, the federal Clean Water Act and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
Mitchell said PPG is liable because it contributed to the past disposal of solid waste at the Slurry Lagoon Area which may present an imminent and substantial endangerment to health or the environment," the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. He also found that PPG violated a 2009 state Department of Environmental Protection order.
"We're excited about the ruling. We knew when we started this case that we were on strong legal ground," said David Masur, PennEnvironment executive director. "We know that illegal dumping into the three rivers is not something that people in southwestern Pennsylvania support."<more>

Berger creates an Uber model to paint a larger share for itself
It's the era of aggregators. Taking a leaf from the models of players like Uber, Urban Clap and others, Kolkata-headquartered Berger Paints is now trying to disrupt the paints market through an aggregator model.
Abhijit Roy, the Managing Director and CEO of Berger Paints, explains how the company is now trying to play a 'sort of aggregator role' by creating a huge inventory of painting contractors. Typically, when home owners want to get repainting done, they contact the local contractor who suggests the paint brand to be used. Berger is now unleashing a model whereby home owners can SMS the company and it will arrange a painter in the vicinity. "We have aggregated a large number of painters and done their KYCs so quality is assured," says Roy. <more>

An ad for paint has birthed a trend of sincere YouTube videos about the beauty of life on Earth.
In March, the paint and coatings company Valspar uploaded a carefully constructed tearjerker of a video, in which a group colorblind men and women give testimonials about their disability, before putting on EnChroma glasses - which help them to see certain colors they had never seen before  and looking at, what else, splotches of Valspar paint. The ad's been viewed over 5 million times, bringing a lot of attention to a paint company. The ad also had a pleasant side effect: it inspired copycats.

Click here for video

Before the ad, only a few videos of color blind people's first experiences with EnChroma - and the colors it allows them to see - had made their way onto YouTube. But since March, a few new videos are posted each week, featuring color blind people from across the world. While the advertisement was touching, the polished short pales in comparison with these moments captured on smartphone cameras. There's no editing or artifice, each video is just a single long shot in which the reality of seeing a color for the first time gradually overtakes someone's emotions.<more>

Anodising Vs powder coating: Which is better for aluminium surface treatments?
Woodform Architectural evaluates the most suitable coating systems for aluminium profiles by examining their advantages and disadvantages.

Aluminium is one of Earth's most abundant metals known for its lightness, strength and resistance to corrosion. Untreated aluminium extrusions are perfectly adequate for many applications; however, there are many valid reasons to treat the surface of aluminium profiles. These include introducing colour, supplementing corrosion resistance; augmenting hardness; arresting wear-and-tear; and adding reflectivity.

Two coating systems - anodised and powder coating - are currently preferred when specifying architectural aluminium.

Nearly a century old, anodising is a relatively straightforward electrochemical process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of aluminium.

Powder coating, on the other hand, is a technique mainly used to apply decorative and protective finishes to aluminium profiles through a process that electrostatically charges the powder consisting of a mixture of finely milled resin and pigment, spraying it on to the aluminium extrusion, and then fusing it into a smooth coating in a curing oven. <more>

Jotachar coating gains ground
Jotachar JF750, a mesh-free passive fire protection (PFP) epoxy coating system for structural steel, was launched two years ago by Jotun. The Jotachar system does not require mesh reinforcement, meaning the required coating thickness for any fire scenario can be applied in a single day. When compared to traditional mesh containing products, independent tests show

that Jotachar can cut material costs by more than 20% and application time by 60% (on a typical 6000sq m project).<more>

Government likely to extend validity of environment clearance to Asian Paints' project
NEW DELHI: Government is likely to extend till June 2018 the validity of environment clearance (EC) given to Asian PaintsBSE 2.22 % the country's largest paint maker for expansion of its Patancheru unit in Telangana.

The EC, granted to Asian Paints in 2008 for expansion of its Patancheru plant, expired in 2013. During this period, the company could not expand the capacity due to some restrictions imposed by the state government.

"Asian Paints' proposal seeking extension of the validity of EC for its expansion project in Telangana was examined by the Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) in a recent meeting. It suggested for extension of the EC validity till June 2018. The final EC is expected to be issued soon," a senior Environment Ministry official said. <more>

Asian Paints to invest Rs 2,300-crore on new plant in Karnataka
NEW DELHI: Asian PaintsBSE 0.02 % plans to invest up to Rs 2,300 crore to set up a manufacturing plant at Mysuru in Karnataka.

"The ultimate capacity of 6 lakh KL per annum would be achieved in a phased manner at an approximate cost of Rs 2,300 crore at the current prices. This is subject to due diligence and necessary regulatory and other approvals," it added. <more>

3rd Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology in Istanbul, Turkey, from 15 to 17 October 2015

PaintExpo Eurasia - Solutions for Sharpening Your Competitive Edge Oberboihingen/Istanbul - Ever stricter quality requirements, the trend towards individualisation, larger production volumes and rising cost pressure - these are just a few of the challenges being faced by companies with in-house painting operations. And they can only be mastered if existing painting and coating processes are consistently optimised. Appropriate solutions will be presented by the exhibitors at the 3rd PaintExpo Eurasia at the Expo Center Istanbul (Istanbul Fuar Merkezi) from the 15th through the 17th of October, 2015. And thus visiting the trade fair for industrial coating technology will make an important contribution to maintaining and sharpening one"s competitive edge at the national and international levels.

Whether liquid painting or powder coating is involved - industrial coating technology plays a decisive role today in all areas of industry and daily life. On the one hand, paint protects surfaces made of metal, plastic, wood and other materials against mechanical, chemical and physical influences- for which prevailing requirements are becoming more and more strict. On the  other hand, paint also has to fulfil sales promotional aspects. The pleasant optics and haptics provided by immaculate painting furnish products with individuality, which is more and more often a decisive buying criteria. The trend towards individualisation and the increasing diversity of colour tones are leading to smaller and smaller lot quantities. At the same time, cost pressure is rising as the result of increasing national and international competition. A further factor involves stricter requirements for the environmental compatibility of the coating process, and its efficient use of resources. And thus in order to remain competitive, companies are required to paint and coat their products more and more cost effectively, and at the same time with higher levels of quality and sustainability. Information concerning the latest technologies and current trends is necessary to this end, and these will be presented at PaintExpo Eurasia at the Expo Center Istanbul from the 15th through the 17th of October, 2015. Comprehensive Offerings with Numerous New Products The exhibitors at the 3rd trade fair for industrial coating technology will present products and services for liquid painting and powder coating ranging from pre-treatment right on up to quality control. These will include lots of new and further developed solutions. In the field of equipment technology, there's an obvious trend towards systems which provide ideal coating quality as well as good flexibility. On the one hand, ever smaller lot quantities, shorter product lifecycles and a continuously increasing variety of colour tones play a role in this respect. On the other hand, central importance is placed on system expandability in accordance with actual needs. Spray guns and high-speed rotary atomizers for the efficient application of coating materials and reduced overspray will be exhibited, which decisively increase application efficiency levels through the use of a spray jet which is matched to workpiece geometry. Intelligent paint logistics with paint feeding systems makes it possible to recover unused paint from the feed lines and to dose defined quantities of paint to the application equipment. Increasing the degree of automation also contributes to optimised quality and cost reductions. Easy to program painting robots, for example, will be presented to this end. They ensure better reproducibility of the painting results and lower scrap rates. The exhibitors will also offer new products in the field of conveyor systems. And they'll introduce new developments in the area of liquid paints and powdered enamels as well. On the one hand, where solvent-based paints are concerned, attention will be focused on so-called very-high and ultra-high-solid paints and, on the other hand, on painting systems which make it possible to reduce the number of required process steps and provide increased durability, for example resistance to scratching. In the field of powdered enamels, the exhibitors will present powder systems which interlink at lower baking temperatures, offer improved protection against corrosion and UV radiation, and more.

The significance of UV technology is also growing where painted metal and plastic parts are concerned. It makes curing possible in a matter of just a few seconds. For example, an innovative, air-cooled curing system will be presented to this end.And thus PaintExpo Eurasia provides visitors with the opportunity of gathering targeted information regarding developments aimed at optimising coating processes, making direct comparisons of different solutions and becoming acquainted with new sources of supply.
