The power of Saya Rugby World Cup 2015 will forever be etched into Springbok supporters’ minds as the year the mighty Springboks lost to world rugby minnows – Japan. It was one of the lowest points that South African rugby had plummeted to since 2003’s well documented Kamp Staaldraad, a ‘boot camp’ organised as a ‘team building‘ exercise for the South African national rugby team,. As a team and a nation, we managed to move on from Kamp Staaldraad to win the Rugby World Cup in 2007 but what followed that terrible evening in Brighton when we lost to Japan was many years of pain. Heyneke Meyer, the Springboks coach at the 2015 Rugby World Cup was replaced by Allister Coetzee in 2016. During the two years that Coetzee was in charge his record as Bok coach reads poorly…– played 25, won 11, drawn 2 and lost 12 for a win ratio of just 44%. By the 02 February 2018, Coetzee was sacked as head coach of the Springboks. His departure was followed by the appointment of Rassie Erasmus. Today, we are all still basking in the euphoria of South Africa’s latest triumph, masterminded by Erasmus with his captain, Siya Kolisi, leading the charge. It took Erasmus 20 months to take a team plummeting to their lowest world rugby ranking to number one and champions

ed’s note

of the world. How he managed it was through a very simple game plan, focusing on the strengths available to him as coach and not playing a brand of rugby suited to Johann Gerber his players. I am keeping it brief for the purpose of my available space. But there is a lot South African business can learn from Erasmus and his captain. He took over the reins of the Boks with the same political pressure as the coaches before him, the same players, the same opponents, in fact very little was in Erasmus’ favour. But he got the players to believe in his plan, his vision and he created a unit with a common goal. As an industry facing some of the toughest challenges since the start of democratic South Africa, we have a lot to learn from Erasmus and Siya. What are our common goals? How do we band together? If Erasmus can turn the Springboks around in 20 months, surely, we as an industry can start working to turn our own fortunes around, but it has to start as a collective – and we have to start today. c

AkzoNobel takes hassle out of steel corrosion protection

Complex corrosion challenges are easier to tackle following the launch of a global range of high performance primers from AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business. The company’s new Interpon Redox range offers customers a one-stop-shop, which provides the simplest route to maximum corrosion protection. It covers a full array of substrates, surfaces and environments – from cable cars and chemical plants to window frames and wind turbines.

L

ong-term performance is paramount for specifiers, who rely on finding the right corrosion protection system for their steel products. However, the process of selecting the right system is influenced by various factors, such as the material used, the environment it’s exposed to and how quickly it’s likely to corrode. Interpon Redox helps to simplify this often complicated decision-making process and offers customers the best possible corrosion protection, in all conditions. “Interpon Redox is all about bringing

simplicity to corrosion protection,” explains Daniela Vlad, managing director of AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business, adding, “Selecting the right primer for the right level of corrosion can be a lot more complex than people may think. So our Interpon Redox systems have been developed with characteristics that address all the variables, making it much easier for customers to pick the perfect coating system. “We take great pride in making sure that our customers have absolute

confidence in the superior quality of our products and the best-in-class service and support we provide. Interpon Redox is the latest example of our longstanding insight into customer needs and industry trends and highlights why we’re widely regarded as being the reference in powder coatings,” concludes Vlad. This product is readily available in Europe and will be rolled out in North America and Asia in 2020. c For more information, visit www.interpon.com

AkzoNobel launches recycled paint

AkzoNobel has become the first major manufacturer to launch recycled paint thanks to a ground-breaking partnership in the United Kingdom with resource management experts Veolia.

D

eveloped by the company’s Dulux Trade brand, the revolutionary Evolve matt emulsion is made from the waste of other people’s paint tins in a bid to reduce the amount that goes to landfill. Once any leftover white paint has been reclaimed, it is sorted, filtered and refined by Veolia. It’s then re-engineered with new paint by AkzoNobel and tested extensively to ensure that every tin meets the high standards expected from Dulux Trade. The final product contains 35% recycled paint. “We’re always looking for new ways to drive sustainable innovation, cut down on waste and create a circular economy for paint, while offering our customers fresh solutions that don’t compromise on quality,” says AkzoNobel’s chief operating officer, Ruud Joosten, adding, “By introducing Evolve, we will reduce the carbon footprint of our Dulux Trade products, and help our customers reach their own sustainability goals.”

“Sustainability is at the heart of our business. That’s why we focus on developing products and technologies with the biggest positive impact. We’re also well aware that people expect more than just a product from a brand, so we’re always striving to deliver the most sustainable, and meaningful, solutions,” adds Rinske van Heiningen, AkzoNobel’s director of sustainability. Evolve was created after years of investment, hard work and commitment to improving the company’s sustainable offering. A particular achievement was reducing the carbon footprint of each litre of Evolve paint produced by more than 10% (compared with standard vinyl matt). The product underwent rigorous testing by research and development experts and was blind tested by decorators and painting contractors. A number of small scale trials were also conducted. “The launch of this new paint is just the latest step on a journey AkzoNobel is taking towards meeting its sustainability targets and

helping to close the loop on paint waste. It’s another example of how we’re setting the pace as the leader in sustainability in the paints and coatings industry,” concludes Joosten. c For more information, visit www.duluxtrade.co.uk/evolve

British coatings industry welcome new Brexit deal but fears remain The British coatings industry has cautiously welcomed the new Brexit deal, but expressed significant concerns about border delays and separating from European chemical regulations in the event of a ‘no deal’ or harder Brexit. The British Coatings Federation (BCF), the industry body, recently ran a major survey on its members’ Brexit concerns.

T

he new Brexit Withdrawal Agreement and political declaration provide some reassurances with its free trade agreement, but BCF warns that regulatory alignment is key for a thriving coatings industry. Eighty two per cent of BCF members have expressed concerns over new UK chemical regulations, which will be needed in the event the UK does not have access to the European Chemicals Agency. Other major concerns included the cost and availability of raw materials, and tariff and non-tariff costs relating to additional bureaucracy and administrative costs related to a harder or No Deal Brexit. When asked about longer term impacts, the number one issue was being treated as a third country by ECHA, therefore requiring the UK to have its own duplicate system to register chemicals. Other additional impacts listed were the possibility of reduction of trade with

the EU, the UK being a less attractive manufacturing base, and additional costs of doing business. Over 90% of respondents want to see tariff-free access to the EU market and free movement of goods. Eighty eight per cent of respondents want the UK to stay within EU REACH and the EU regulatory framework, and 83% want to see regulatory equivalence between the UK and the EU for chemicals. “The new Withdrawal Agreement and political declaration go some way towards providing the industry with certainty regarding the UK’s future relationship with the EU. However, our major concerns regarding regulatory alignment going forward are still there. The UK coatings industry has made significant preparations ahead of a ‘no deal’ Brexit, with 88% of members stating that they have already done some planning in the event of a no deal Brexit. These preparations have taken various forms, with 79% building inventory of raw materials and 60% of

12 | Coatings SA

respondents discussing contingency plans with logistics suppliers. As the industry body, we have been providing members with updated information regarding UK versions of regulations and plans for procedures at the border,” said Tom Bowtell, chief executive of the British Coatings Federation, “Members are overwhelmingly worried about a ‘no deal’ Brexit, with 95% expressing varying levels of concern. However, we are pleased that the industry has been proactively preparing as much as possible for every eventuality, as 61% say they are somewhat confident that their supply chains can adapt to a no deal Brexit, and 15% are very confident. We will continue to work with members, government and the wider chemicals industry to ensure our members are as prepared as possible in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit, which we hope can still be avoided,” said Ellen Daniels, head of Public Affairs and Policy at the British Coatings Federation. c

Octogrip wins gold!

Contan Buckets and Pails is a proud gold medal winner in this year’s Gold Pack Awards, which were announced on 30th October 2019.

C

Contan’s OctoGrip™ Lid won gold at this year’s Gold Pack Awards for its smart locking system that prevents accidental spills.

ontan’s patented OctoGrip™ Lid, specially developed for its 20L pails, won the award for solving the paint industry problem where building contractors want to colour tint paint to match customer specifications. After tinting, the lid is replaced on the bucket, but some buckets end up leaking if they roll over in transit. The OctoGrip™ Lid is the smart locking system that prevents accidental spills. The patented, fully recyclable polypropylene OctoGrip™ Lid features eight locking tabs which grip tightly onto the bucket. Its robust tamper band provides additional strength to survive the roughest supply chain and provides excellent top load strength to enable efficient stacking. It’s also

simple to open with instructions embossed on the lid. The Gold Pack judges tested the OctoGrip™ Lid extensively, filling it with water and treating it roughly to test if it would leak. They were impressed enough to award it the top position in the Packaging Related category for 2019. INVESTING FOR EXCELLENCE Along with its innovative range of buckets and pails for the coatings industry, Contan’s one-stop service includes packaging design, mould manufacture, packaging testing and technical support. Its extensive distribution network with more than 14 sales branches across southern Africa underpins its excellent customer service.

In its continuous drive for excellence Contan has made significant investments at its Roodekop facility including state-ofthe-art warehousing functionality, digital logistics enhancements and fleet enlargement. “We are excited to bring this innovation to the paint industry and it has been worth all the R&D that went into its development. We have been focussing for some time on user-friendly functionality and this has hit the spot. This now extends our range of paint containers that are spill resistant yet easy to open by hand,” says Karl Lambrecht, chief executive for Contan. SERIOUS ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY Contan takes its obligation to Extended Producer Responsibility

very seriously and is the only plastic bucket producer that is a contributing member of POLYCO, the industry’s non-profit body, established to focus on reducing the amount of polyolefin waste going to landfill. Contan voluntarily contributes raw material levies towards promoting and growing the collection and recycling of postconsumer polyolefins, including polypropylene buckets and pails used in the paint and coatings industry. The Polyoak group is also the first plastic packaging manufacturer in South Africa to pledge to the global Operation Clean Sweep initiative, demonstrating its commitment to Zero Plastic Pellet Loss into the environment. “We are confident that our diverse range of lightweight,

Contan is a sustainable supplier partner that assumes responsibility for the end life of our packaging through active participation with POLYCO,” concludes Lambrecht. “By partnering with Contan, paint manufacturers and brand owners can actively contribute towards reducing packaging waste to landfill and help drive recycling initiatives, which last year sustained almost 60 000 jobs. We look forward to exploring how Contan can add value to customers’ business in an innovative and sustainable manner.” c For more information, call 011-724-3800.

HO A comparison of the structures of Oestradiol & 4-Nonylphenol

Fig 1: demonstrates the extreme wettability of talc in water without agitation.

Oestradiol is a sex hormone that influences the development and maintenance of sex characteristics, and the maturation and function of accessory sex organs in humans and many aquatic organisms.

and is also useful as an emulsifying agent in agricultural emulsions (pesticides, herbicides etc) where emulsion stability in the presence of high electrolytes is required. The low viscosity enables ease of handling and transfer by pumping.

It has become evident that a wide variety of both manmade and natural chemicals are capable of mimicking the activity of this hormone being similar in structure. The commonly used nonylphenol is one such chemical used in the paint industry.

Applications • Dispersancy • Industrial detergency

Being Alkylphenol Ethylene Oxide (APEO) free, it is also biodegradable and has a zero Volatile Organic Content (VOC). Additionally it is heavy metal and formaldehyde free thus exceeding the requirements for use in European Directive 2004/42/EC paints. Enviro-wet BD possesses Superior Anionic wetting and dispersing properties and also functions as a Deflocculating and Suspending agent. It is readily soluble in cold water and polar solvents without gel formation and with minimal agitation. It effectively lowers the surface tension of water thereby facilitating the emulsification of oils and solvents and the dispersion of pigments and extenders. Enviro-wet BD shows excellent resistance to hard water Foamability Having the added advantage of a low viscosity, it is also low foaming with a rapid knockdown, as can be seen from the following foam height results: Initial After 5 min.

Enviro-wet BD should be used in the traditional manner in paint manufacture as a wetting agent. It can be added in the grind or let down phase. In the grind, it aids dispersancy of pigments and extenders and in the let down, it enhances the colour development and promotes viscosity and shear stability of the coating. It can be used in emulsion based and alkyd paints. Enviro-wet BD is readily soluble in all proportions in water and polar solvents and is an efficient emulsifier of oils and organic solvents. It functions in loosening, emulsifying and suspending soil and grime until it can be rinsed away. It has strong hydrophilic and lypophylic molecules that help lower the surface tension and emulsify organic soiling. It shows similar foaming properties to a conventional surfactant in a 5 % aqueous solution.

biocides and offers key transport and storage advantages because the resulting paints contain no water until they are re-dispersed just before use. The paints have a very low content of volatile organic compounds (< 1 g/l) and meet the requirements of the major environmental labels. They are also low-odour and free of organic solvents, plasticisers and film-forming agents. The polymers ensure a good adhesion and provide excellent spreading properties, hiding power and scrub resistance.

RELIABLE FACADE PROTECTION WITH NEW SILICONE RESIN BINDER Experts agree, exterior paints formulated with silicone resin emulsions offer the most efficient protection from moisture. This is achieved by the three-dimensional network binding silicone resins to the mineral substrate. Not only is this bond extremely water- and

22 | Coatings SA

dirt-repellent, it is also breathable because it is permeable to water vapour. This protects the facade from moisture, and especially from heavy rain, while keeping it dry from the inside. Silicone resin paints thus combine the advantages of mineral-based and polymerbound coatings. The binder SILRES® BS 6042 contains a novel silicone resin emulsion enabling the formulation of fast-drying, extremely longlasting and dirt-resistant exterior paints. The water-based emulsion contains no organic solvents. Accordingly, it can be used in ecolabel-compliant paint formulations. Specially developed for the Latin American market, SILRES® BS 6042 additionally enables the formulation of plasters and exterior paints with high solids contents. High-quality silicone resin paints can be produced easily thanks to pigment-compatible properties.


feature POLYMER DISPERSION FOR BITUMINOUS COATINGS VINNEVA® is its line of polymer dispersions for bituminous coatings. Polymers make bitumen emulsions more flexible and more resistant to all kinds of mechanical stress. The binders enhance the properties of bitumen emulsions and ensure that the resulting coatings adhere excellently to concrete, brick and cement. VINNEVA® modified bitumen furthermore protects roofs and basements particularly well against ingress of water. BINDER FOR MINERAL-BASED SKIM COATS Wacker also showcased a skim coat consisting of cement, polymeric binders, fillers and various additives which are often applied to achieve particularly fine, thin and smooth surfaces. VINNAPAS® dispersible polymer powder based on vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) enhances the properties of the skim coat, ensuring enhanced adhesion to masonry, concrete or insulation panels and provides superior flexibility. The polymers additionally deliver good workability and excellent resistance to weathering. SOLUTIONS FOR DIRT-REPELLENT SURFACES For dirt-repellent surfaces, the dispersion PRIMIS® SAF 9000 and the concentrated anti-graffiti agent SILRES® BS 710 was shown. Its unique composition makes PRIMIS® SAF 9000 both oil-resistant and hydrophobic, meaning it protects wall paints against many different types of stains – from coffee and red wine to coloured markers. SILRES® BS 710 is a one-component concentrated agent that protects against unpleasant graffiti attacks. After it is applied to the facade, the liquid silicone forms a permanent, elastic protective film on which spray paints, paints and stickers find no support. Graffiti can be washed off easily with water. Posters or signs that have been pasted onto walls can be removed easily, too.

ALTERNATIVE BINDER FOR The company placed special COATING CONCRETE AND focus on GENIOSIL® XB and SCREED FLOORS GENIOSIL® XT.

2019: A quick recap 2019 will be remembered as one of the toughest years faced by South Africa’s economy, but the optimism and euphoria that the country experienced through Siya Kolisi’s World Cup winning Springboks will underpin the resilience of South Africans. Coatings SA asked members of the industry to share with us their thoughts on the year that was.

2

019 has been another tough year in the industry, but there have been indications of an upturn and we foresee 2020 being a much better year. Having chatted to several people in the industry this does seem to be the general feeling, and sentiment that the industry on the whole feels is more positive. I am sure that the Springboks victory will give an impetus to that improvement and we look forward to next year with eager anticipation. As a company we feel we are well placed to make the most of the upturn – Graham Duk, BAMR 2019 will be remembered as a very tough year for the coatings industry. The abysmal economic performance, continued demands for wage increases by unions and consumers who are struggling to make ends meet with lower disposable income are just some of the real concerns. The deflated value of the rand exacerbating the spiralling costs of imported raw materials and petroleum products coupled on the tote with expensive and erratic electricity demand. Amongst all of this, the industry must face a continuance of cheap imports coming into the country in competition to our manufacturers, both paint manufacturers as well as raw material suppliers. The African free trade agreement looms in 2020 with Egyptian, Chinese and Indian supply chains wetting their lips for an opportunity to enter the South African market without trade tariff barriers. The challenges of reducing lead in paint and removing dangerous methanol from lacquer thinners continues whilst industry members tries to find a way through the myriad of government red

tape as one department passes the buck to the next. And yet, amongst this all the only silver lining has been the tremendous win by the Springboks against all odds, with the rand dominating the value of the British pound for 80 wonderful minutes. Maybe this unexpected win will convince the powers that South Africans are winners and not victims and that where there is enough will, determination and know-how available to pull our country out of the mess we presently find ourselves in. Well done Bokke – you have done the country proud, now it’s the Government’s turn – Deryck Spence, SAPMA

that we are a Non-Profit organisation. This means that members of the coatings industry that have communitybased projects that they want to fund can give SAPITI this funding. In turn we will assist with the training on these community based projects, and use the relevant company’s paint to advertise for them and promote the use of their products when completing painting jobs while ensuring that the preparation is done correctly with the SAPITI training and assistance. The companies who have this funding will benefit from the community-based project as well as receive a tax rebate as we are registered as an NPO. – Tara Benn, SAPITI “It was a year filled with challenges and chaotic geopolitical issues. The chemical landscape is changing globally with great emphasis on sustainability, innovation, and greener and cleaner technologies” – Sanjeev Bhatt, Synthetic Polymers

SAPITI as the training institute for the coatings industry has had a very eventful and promising year in 2019. We received funding from CHIETA to assist with training employed and unemployed students within industry to understand the process of paint manufacturing as well as more intricate details such as tinting and matching of paint and paint products. We have completed the admin processes for this funding recently and will be starting with the training of these individuals in the next few weeks. Having said that, SAPITI has also just received its NPO Certificate confirming

24 | Coatings SA

Whilst it is easy to focus on all that is wrong around us, let us take a leaf of the Springbok playbook. A classic example of the whole being greater than the sum of the individual parts. The win was a classic example of successful change management execution, so that we can rule the world for another four years. Similarly, if every individual, every department, every organisation within our sector and economy focuses on making a difference, being the best in class, then the rainbow in December 2020 will shine brightly for all. Best wishes to all for a happy, safe and restful festive season – Denzil Mohanlal, Tawazon Chemical Company c

Highly effective wetting Overcoatable Suitable for water- and solvent-borne coatings Additional anti-crater effect Low foaming tendency

The wetting of surfaces with a coating strongly depends on the surface tension of the coating and the substrate. If the surface tension of the coating is lower than of the substrate, a good substrate wetting is possible. With water-borne coating systems the tendency to wetting problems and surface defects is very high. Such problems are particularly noticeable when the interfacial Product

food for thought

Can business survive a country without scruples?

SAPMA and a government department earlier this year locked horns about what we felt was a highly unethical way this department had handled what was clearly a fraudulent course of events. By Deryck Spence

A

fter the department had completed an independent investigation into the affair, SAPMA was summarily told that although the action (in this case of a former SAPMA employee) could be viewed as unethical under normal circumstances, the department could not be held to book. The reason? The department did not have a corporate ethics policy – so it could never be guilty of unethical behaviour.

SAPMA’s offers to assist in the development of an ethical policy falls on deaf ears Ethical behaviour is surely the very backbone of business and trade. But now the old foundations of mutual trust - ‘shaking hands on it’ and ‘you have my word’ – are a thing of the past. Instead, we have reports of container loads of titanium dioxide shipped in from China, only to find that the load contained just sea sand – Chinese sea sand, mind you. And there have been shipments of solvents containing sea water, labels manipulated to avoid import tariffs, and manufacturers claiming SABS-approvals fraudulently to gain business with government agencies. But all of this is just in line the national

norm. The Auditor-General’s reports on the financial condition of South African municipalities – with less than 5% adhering to traditional management systems and service and R61bn of unauthorised expenditure – makes it clear that crime happens at all levels of government with no modicum of retribution. So, following the ‘when in Rome’ philosophy, our country is sinking into an abyss of corruption. Recently, an ANC official stated: “I did not join the ANC to be poor”. Dear reader, for just a moment: ponder what this man’s ambition is really telling you. South Africa, once a proud global business hub, is sinking (or has already descended) into an unscrupulous, unethical and corrupt society. The sad part is that the perpetuators of this scourge to our reputation are getting away with it and even justifying their behaviour. Despite the alarming declarations at the State Capture Investigation, nobody who unscrupulously participated in the Arms deal, the decline of SAA, Eskom, Armscor, SABC, the national railways and water departments, have yet faced criminal charges. So, should we be surprised that the culture of non-payment – for so long the

34 | Coatings SA

rally call of the ANC – has now well and truly taken root? Companies’ days of non-payment to customers are stretching from 15, to 30, to 45, to 60, to 90 days. Once this tactic was mainly confined to government and municipal departments, but now it has become part of life. I recently phoned a member whose relatively low SAPMA membership subscriptions were 240 days overdue. Instead of an apology, or any excuse for the non-payment, I was castigated for daring to request payment and told in no uncertain terms that this member ‘knew his legal rights’ and if he was unhappy about something, he did not have to pay for it. Surely, this is like going to the movies and asking for your money back because you did not like the popcorn, or not paying the tennis club’s subs because you had not won a match for 240 days. In conclusion, let’s return to Rome for metaphorical inspiration: our government is watching while Rome burns – even helping fan the flames. In South Africa now, ethics and good business practice have been razed to the ground. Makes you want to cry, doesn’t it? Deryck Spence Executive Director, SAPMA.
