Waterborne coatings vs oily coatings

With the improvement of people’s living standard and the pursuit of environmental protection, the waterborne coatings for home improvement have developed rapidly. So what is the difference between waterborne coatings and traditional oil-based coatings?
Componential analysis:
Water borne coatings are water used as solvent or as dispersing medium. They include 3 kinds of water soluble coatings, water diluted coatings and water dispersible coatings (latex paints). Water soluble coatings are made of water soluble resins. They are represented by polyvinyl alcohol and various modified substances. In addition, there are water-soluble alkyd resin, water-soluble epoxy resin and inorganic high polymer water resin.
Oily coating also called oil paint, is mainly a drying oil paint film material, mainly oil, thick paint, oil paint blending, oily antirust paint and putty, putty, etc.. The main oils used are tung oil, linseed oil, catalpa oil, soybean oil, sunflower seed oil, fish oil and so on. It is characterized by easy production, low price, good brushing, flexible coating and good permeability. The disadvantage is slow drying and poor physical and chemical properties of coatings. Most of them are now replaced by synthetic resins with good properties.
Environmental characteristics analysis:
Water based paint as a diluent for water, harmless to human health, and oily coatings to banana water, take water as a diluent, containing xylene and other harmful carcinogens.
Waterborne coatings in use because of no toxic and carcinogenic substances, non-toxic and tasteless, can stay after brushing; paint containing a strong pungent smell, the gas contains large amounts of harmful substances, harm to human health, generally 1-2 months after use, strong pungent odor volatile to basically tasteless, but still a large number of harmful gas 10-15 will release.
Because of its non-toxic and pollution-free characteristics, waterborne coatings have been favored by consumers and will replace oily coatings in the future.

French research focuses on the safety of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in foods

A focus on daily consumer products research journal said 24 survey shows that nanoscale titanium dioxide particles on the French market selling all kinds of sweets in almost all has different content, the threat of the magazine called attention to the long-term consumption of nanoparticles on human health may constitute.
A survey released sponsored by the French National Consumer Research Institute “60 million consumers” magazine shows that including candy, cakes, frozen desserts and other 18 kinds of common brands of sweets are additives containing titanium dioxide, titanium dioxide in these TiO2 nanoparticles, to exist in the form of accounts for 10% of the total to 100%. The magazine criticized some manufacturers for failing to mark “nano material” on the packaging in accordance with EU regulations.
Titanium dioxide, often called titanium dioxide or titanium sugar, is a loose white powder, a common food and cosmetic additive, and the food and Drug Administration considers it safe. It is often added to toothpaste, chocolate to increase texture, or used in doughnuts, skim milk and other foods, so that its color is more bright and attractive. In addition, due to the better UV shielding effect of titanium dioxide, some sunscreen cosmetics will also add this component.
Although titanium dioxide is generally considered safe, investigators say it is common to see if it is safe to eat in the form of tiny particles with a diameter of less than 100 nanometers. Because nanoparticles are easy to enter human cells, the existing scientific research is not clear whether titanium dioxide nanoparticles will damage human cells and lead to lesions.
The controversy over titanium dioxide nanoparticles in food is not the first. In January this year, the French National Institute for agricultural research has released a report that let the mice ate the amount of nano particles is titanium dioxide from 40% to 45%, and the dosage is generally believed that human edible dose is similar to that for one hundred days, mice in the colon was benign lesions (e.g. polyps) significantly enhance the speed of development.
“60 million consumers” magazine said that although the study does not prove that the consumption of titanium dioxide nanoparticles may increase cancer risk in humans, but still need the possible health hazards are vigilant, hope that the parties concerned as soon as possible for more study.

Ether market overall shortage of cash supply situation continues to ferment

Polyether market prices since mid June rebound window opened, the rally has been postponed to July. At the end of July and early August, with epoxy propane pre maintenance device will resume as well as Jilin Shenhua epoxy ethane plant storage plans to restart, propylene oxide, polyether prices slowed down into the digestive finishing stage. The second week of August, the overall supply of cash shortage situation continues to ferment, polyether prices go up, a repeat of last year’s “golden nine silver ten” during the hot market.
The downstream foam factory is short of stock. Affected by environmental inspectors, the lower part of the backward production capacity to accelerate the elimination of demand overall as a tightening situation. Polyether foam plastics factory of soft global purchasing enthusiasm has been tepid, the overall performance of stage procurement cycle, reduce the number, and with the increasingly high price of polyether, just need to purchase mode of polyether shortage.
Soft foam total yield decreased. Ethylene oxide is short of fuel, fueling the rise. Soft foam polyether profit is low, polyether manufacturers in high cost, low demand pressure, the focus is mainly on other high profit products, soft foam production has been reduced. With 7 months of ethylene oxide supply shortage situation highlights, Jan Huojin price a polyether soft foam sponge factory, crazy chase downstream aggravate soft cargo tight situation, soft foam polyether as the basis for other products driving the price of polyether products have go up.
Propylene oxide continues to be in short supply, providing key support for the market. As the main raw materials of polyether, although the early repair devices in August have been restored, but with the Shenhua Jilin has not yet put into operation and new repair good following, propylene oxide spot shortage situation continues. At the same time, the demand for the better with the increase in orders, polyether, polyether manufacturers of epoxy propane procurement efforts to increase, exacerbating the stock shortage of propylene oxide, propylene oxide and substantial price increases, the cost of polyether pressure surge, offer to go up wide pressure.
Under the combined influence of the above factors, polyether prices opened frenzied rally in the second week of August, repeating the glorious rally in the past year. Despite the recent rapid rise, prices hit a new high this year, but since mid July to regain profits since the situation upside down from polyether, polyether theory up to now, the average profit of only 337 yuan / ton, ratio of propylene oxide is still a far cry from the high profits.
August polyether trend brilliant, 9 and October polyether market will be how? The raw materials, although the Jilin Shenhua propylene oxide deposit to restart the program, but because of the early stopping time is longer, the process is more complex, the short-term load of epoxy propane temporarily difficult to full, plus the end of September and early October the polyether device also plans to restart deposit, increase the overall supply of propylene oxide late co.. Recently, the Shandong environmental protection inspector storm is strong, the traditional chlorohydrin process of propylene oxide and more concentrated in the Shandong area, having started with propylene oxide device instability, coupled with the manufacturers of epoxy propane polyether having insufficient reserves, demand will still support. Overall, in late 8, until the “golden nine silver ten”, propylene oxide will be based on high shock finishing.
Secondly, see polyether downstream demand side, despite the recent prices rose as TDI, polyether downstream costs increased pressure on polyether resentment warming, individual small factories overwhelmed, temporarily closed down, but the downstream of polyether still just need support, and inventory is generally not high, “Kim Gu silver ten” season is about traditional upholstered furniture come under pressure to buy plastic factory orders demand will still support polyether.

In 2017 Chinese timber market performance: frequent flash point”

Behind every difficulty, there must be a turning point, as long as the mind clings to the hope, be sure to find a breakthrough point, resolving crisis.
In recent days, Chinese timber market for several months “cold city” erode the working enthusiasm of many businesses, in the face of downstream manufacturers “no hurry” to “wait” mentality, funds on hand tight more is more suffering. However, the crisis in Tibet machine, facing the industry cold city dilemma, there are also “heart hot” people, Tuen warehouse stocking is not lively.
In 2017, Chinese timber market performance, after 2015, the 2016 downturn in 2017 despite the Chinese struggle, timber market has not been fully restored, but the market is frequent “flash point”, red sandalwood, pineapple, padauk, sink your timber market such as treasure is wonderful all make businessmen happy.
According to the China timber price index network monitoring data show that in 2017 1-7 months, the timber composite index at 1140-1170 points in operation, an increase of 2-3%. In March, Guangdong pearl market padauk fish price index at 1223.98 points, an increase of 42.66%, or the top.
Active market trading business promotion, lamented “the worst is over, so in 6, 7, August the traditional off-season occasion, despite the continuous shrinking market so that businesses are quite helpless, but it did not affect the enthusiasm of stocking.
It is understood that the big red sandalwood, red sandalwood is the most promising two wood species for businesses, so businesses are also stocking is positive, of which the peak settled for the two material goods in 6 and July. Market analysts believe that rising prices and the supply of resources is one of the important reasons for timber traders to actively warehouse. At present, the Guangdong market padauk diameter 30-40cm, length 2-2.2 meters at 2.2-2.5 yuan / ton, rose 6000-8000 yuan / ton; red sandalwood from Panama crude saw Fang reported 4700-5500 yuan / ton, rose 500-800 yuan / ton.
However, while people are happy for the good situation, the accompanying market problems have made the business very tangled. This is also an important reason why some Chinese Timber Merchants were happy and worried in 2017.
According to the investigation, because the downstream manufacturers demand growth far less than expected so optimistic, imbalances in supply and demand conditions, timber market competition is more intense, so go to the middle of a common goal and become manufacturers suppliers, which will greatly weaken the dealer business advantage, and this part of the people this is the most painful.
In addition, the cost of pushing up the price of timber also allows downstream manufacturers to wait and see mood four onwards, take the quantity of goods is reduced and then reduced, the purchase and sale of both sides of the game is very fierce game, of which the hedgehog, rosewood business is the most typical.
From the above analysis of the market, it is easy to see, in the downturn in the baptism of China’s timber market is more rational, the market environment is more complex. In this industry to adjust the big wave, the test is our mentality and perseverance. Persevere, start as funerals, clung to the hope of mind, identify the market breakthrough point, to turn the crisis into an opportunity!
