When green is groovy
On a plant visit to Nippon Paint India, Mahesh Anand, president, decorative,
explains the lean and green manufacturing process it has adopted
When the president of a company that has been operating in India for exactly
a decade tells you of his ambitions for the local market and adds that they
are not pursuing to expand aggressively, you begin to wonder at what exactly
he has in mind. Scratch the surface a little and one begins to understand
that there are minute details that are often overlooked by larger and
established players in the industry and which Nippon Paint India is looking
Mahesh Anand, president, Nippon Paint India - decorative, says, 'This plant,
situated on 11.37 acres, is the first green field project in India. Here we

safety measures as a first thing. It then went in for the mandatory ISO

The Nano-coating Technology that can
Waterproof any Device
Liquipel, a waterproofing
company, designed a nano coating to repel water off of any electronic
It has long been known that electronics and liquids do not mix. Water has a
tendency to shortcut and fry devices, rending them useless. However, a new
company is seeking to waterproof any device to prevent further electronics
from succumbing to a watery grave.
The company, Liquipel, uses a nano-coating to not only waterproof, but make
them water repellent. The nano-coating, which is hydrophobic, repels water
from coming into contact with any part of the device. To waterproof the
device it is first placed into a vacuum. A patented gas is then introduced
into the chamber where it is subject to plasma which decomposes the liquid
repellent molecules, polymerizing them to themselves. The Liquipel fluid is
then bonded to the surface on a molecular level to produce the repellent
Spray-on waterproof nano coating exceeds expectations
Australian researchers have developed a new sprayable water-repelling
material that could be used to waterproof various types of technologies more
cheaply and more durably than is currently possible with existing materials.
In a video released by the Australian National University, PhD student
William Wong can be seen pouring a blue liquid onto a Petri dish. The
remarkable thing is that, although the Petri dish is almost full of the
liquid, two round coins placed in its centre stay perfectly dry. In fact,
every drop that touches the coins immediately slides away and joins the bulk
of the surrounding liquid.
The two coins are covered with the material developed by Wong and his
supervisor Associate Professor Antonio Tricoli.

New Nano Coating Extends the Life of
Fruit and Veg
In order to extend the life of
fruits and vegetables and preserve them for longer, UNAM researchers have
developed an edible coating with added functional ingredients that can be
applied to freshly cut foods.
Dr. Maria de la Luz Zambrano Zaragoza, (pictured below) researcher at the
Faculty of Higher Cuautitlan (FES) Cuautitlan, explained the benefits of
this type of coating: "With oxidation occuring many fruits can no longer be
consumed, with this technology, crop losses decrease significantly and it
also helps to retain nutrients in fruits and vegetables." <more>
