Coatings industry assure on safety of

titanium dioxide

The SA Paint Manufacturing Association (SAPMA) has issued official reassurance to the public and its members that the inclusion of titanium dioxide as a white pigment in some industrial paints holds absolutely no health risks to anyone exposed to such paints.

really good locks

5140C. Eureka Frt Knx ¼ pg M6 Handles AUG’17 DIYTN

AUGUST 2017 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS

www.fortknoxlocks.co.za

DERYCK SPENCE, EXECUTIVE director of SAPMA, says it has been informed by the British Coatings Federation (BCF) that the European Chemical Agency (ECA) had recommended that any EU product containing titanium dioxide should carry labelling warning that the product is ‘suspected of causing cancer by inhalation’. The ECA’s recommendation is only the first step in the regulatory process but both BCF and SAPMA have decided to immediately refute this opinion. “SAPMA felt it was important to immediately advise members and the public who may have noted the ECA stance on the compound, that once titanium dioxide has been incorporated in paint or ink, there is no risk of the solid particles of the substance being inhaled,” Spence stated. He says titanium dioxide is an inert inorganic compound used as a white pigment in many industrial applications, including the manufacture of paints, coatings, printing inks and wallcoverings where it provides essential product properties such as whiteness, covering power, brightness, stability and durability of colour not achievable with other raw materials. Titanium dioxide is also used in many other consumer products. The BCF statement says during the manufacturing process, exposure to titanium dioxide powder might occur.

Deryck Spence, executive director of SAPMA.

However, studies over many years have not found any correlation between workers exposed to titanium dioxide and the risk of lung cancer. In addition, BCF feels that the tests on rats cited by ECHA in its official opposition to the substance, were conducted using ‘unrealistically high amounts’ of titanium dioxide that would not be allowed in any manufacturing environment. Based on this, BCF and CEPE (the European organisation of paints, inks, and artists colours producers) consider the use of titanium dioxide to be safe for workers during the manufacturing process. This is further supported by the ongoing commitment of BCF and CEPE member companies to take every precaution to ensure the safety of their products and workers throughout their supply chain. SAPMA’s Spence added, “SAPMA fully supports the BCF decision to challenge any proposed legislation on this specific element. We would also strongly oppose any such proposed labelling if were to be considered in South Africa in future.”

It is vital that, before you conduct business with Chinese manufactures and suppliers, you know what products you are looking to source, the quality of the products you are looking for, as well as the quantity. Have a specific budget in mind (allowing for shipping costs). This will help you when negotiating with the right Chinese supplier.

BUSINESS GUIDELINES MAKE USE OF THE PLATFORMS AVAILABLE TO YOU Apart from the wealth of information available to you online, there are specific platforms designed to help you do business directly with Chinese suppliers and manufacturers. These platforms, such as a sourcing fair, provide a safe and structured environment for you to source the right products at the right prices. At a show for example, make use of the complimentary Mandarin translators who will help you conduct business effortlessly, avoiding miscommunicated talking points and discussions.

4

SAMPLE THE PRODUCT AND REQUEST AN AUDIT Before buying large quantities of the products you need to make your business a success, ensure that you are happy with the product by requesting a sample. Test the product out and do a quality check. It is also vital to request an audit of the factory and company you wish to purchase goods from. This can be done, either by inspecting the facilities yourself or through an auditor based in China.

5

SIGN THE DEAL Once you are happy with the product and the supplier, and have arranged your shipping itinerary and costs, draw up a contract between the supplier and yourself. The contract must stipulate dates for distribution, shipping dates as well as quality control and inspection prior to leaving China.

// IT IS VITAL THAT, BEFORE YOU CONDUCT BUSINESS WITH CHINESE MANUFACTURES AND SUPPLIERS, YOU KNOW WHAT PRODUCTS YOU ARE LOOKING TO SOURCE, THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCTS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR, AS WELL AS THE QUANTITY //

proposed as means of formally recognising persons that had been active in the concrete and related industries for many years - and had substantial concrete technology knowledge and practical skills - for their experience in the form of a diploma. Such in-depth experience in the industry remains a prerequisite to acceptance for ACT studies and consequently the SCT has charted a route for potential, younger and less experienced, students to follow towards qualifying for ACT enrolment. “South Africa urgently needs more qualified concrete technologists but be warned: there are no short cuts to gaining this ultimate diploma of competence. To be successful, requires a slow and steady maturation of concrete technology knowledge and hands on practice over a number of years,” Roxburgh cautions. “The SCT therefore recommends – and offers – a progressive approach to ACT training through selected courses that are of increasing technological content along with a more detailed study of various fields in concrete. Practical application of concrete technology is an essential component in concrete technology education. The SCT recommends that a prospective ACT candidate ensures that substantial time between courses is given to onsite application of the technology taught in its courses. “The School therefore encourages students to enrol at the SCT to

This will then ensure sufficient theoretical knowledge plus practical on site experience before considering enrolling for the formidable ACT programme,” Roxburgh adds. To obtain the ACT diploma, passing two three-hour examinations, along with the acceptance of a satisfactory research project, must be achieved. Over the past 26 years, a total of 79 candidates have successfully obtained an ACT diploma through the education provided by the SCT. For these graduates, the ACT diploma has opened up many doors within the concrete and concrete related industries, many of whom now occupy top leadership positions. Roxburgh urges those interested in studying for an ACT diploma to contact the School of Concrete Technology as soon as possible to discuss an appropriate approach, based on individual needs and experience, towards successfully enrolling for and obtaining this prestigious diploma.

JUREK LEON

What happens when you give out a brochure?

Hardworking Tools

Introducing our NEW CHISEL GRIP RANGE

Giving out a brochure is often a cop out says Jurek Leon…find out what he means. Giving out a brochure can indicate: “I don’t have the time to talk to you. Here, take 1 this. It will tell you all you need to know.”

2 You haven’t asked enough questions or listened to your customers needs so they tell you they want to think about it. Your response, give them a brochure! 3 You are scared of your customers or lack the

knowledge in your products and services so the easy way out is to hand them a brochure.

I am not against brochures, used correctly it is a great sales tool. Even in this e-commerce era, brochures have an important role to play. And the money spent on them is completely wasted if they are left under the counter and don’t get into the customers’ hands. So, ‘Yes’ you do need to give them out. However, what I am against is handing them out without personalising them for each customer. This is something that is almost impossible to do cost effectively in a large mailout or letterbox drop, but face-to-face it can be done when you take a customer focussed approach. ABUSE YOUR BROCHURES Rarely if ever should you give a customer a pristine brochure. Make it your objective to disfigure your lovely glossy brochure in some way before allowing the customer to head off with it. Why would you do this? You do it to personalise the information for the customer and remind them of the key points that matter to them. My favourite tool for this is a yellow highlighter. Use it to mark the key things that matter to this particular customer or to the person they are going to discuss the potential purchase with. That way these points will jump out at them. DEALING WITH REVERSE TYPE AND GLOSSY BROCHURES Bright highlighters often don’t show up well on gloss finishes or where there is a lot of reverse type. In these situations use a pen and underline or put an asterisk next to the key points that are of importance to the customer. LET ME ILLUSTRATE THIS FOR YOU Picture the situation. There have been a number of

burglaries in your area so you are in the market for security screens and a security door for your home. You get information from three suppliers and intend discussing the pros and cons of each with your partner. Your partner’s main concern is the cost even though they agree that family safety is the priority. You are also concerned about whether the security screens will darken the rooms or are unsightly and how hard they are to clean. You asked each sales rep about this, but now when you look at the brochures it’s hard to find the information. This means, it’s a challenge to get your partner to look beyond the cheapest price. Let’s say that one of the salespeople highlight the section of the brochure that discusses these points and writes alongside something else you’d mentioned that could be an issue for your partner. Instead of you having to rack your brains to recall what the salesperson said (and even which salesperson said it); it jumps out at you from the page. This gives you confidence. You’ve done your research, you know what you are talking about and now the second sale takes place as you win over your partner. WHAT ABOUT EMAIL? If you are going to email a brochure or provide a link to it at your website, use a similar process to focus your customers on the points that matter to them. For example, “If you turn to page 2 in the second paragraph you will see that it explains... the other thing you particularly liked about the XYZ model is covered in points two and three on page 5.” You are now making it easy for the person to locate the specific information that mattered to them. With an attachment or in with information in the body of your email you can also use the yellow highlighter facility in the same way as you would with a print brochure. THE LESSONS Pretty brochures don’t win you more business. Specific information that matters to your customers and reminds them that your products and services have the solutions that they require is what wins you more business. Personalise your brochures, make it easy for prospective customers to contact you and follow up. This will ensure that you and your company stand out from the crowd.

Heat

Speed & Pressure

Use a lubrication medium, such as oil, to reduce heat build-up, thereby prolonging drill bit life.

Drill as slow as possible but as fast as necessary.

Main Point Of Friction

Turning Speed RPM

No Excessive pressure

Rule of thumb – drill into hard materials at a slower speed.

Avoid placing excessive pressure on the drill machine and bit as it can lead to a dull bit and even cause it to break.
