FIRE HAZARD IN ADHESIVE TAPE MANUFACTURING

  1. 1. Date : 20/06/2014 12.00 noon LATEST UPDATES FROM ADHESIVE TAPE INDUSTRY IN INDIA. Dear Friends , I am sharing with you a Unfortunate , Braking News , with you related to Adhesive Tape manufacturing , Large Unit based in South Karnataka India. It wont be appropriate to name this Company . What is more important to know is , in this Adhesive Tape Manufacturing Unit , lot of Solvent Based PS Adhesives were consumed. They had a fire last week and the entire Plant is reduced to ashes. Luckily they have additional Manufacturing units elase where , but the Loss is tremendous. In India , Manufacturers have different approaches. Some people have a feeling that , Ok , Fire is an accident and , it can happen. The unit is well protected by Fire Insurance Policy and , the losses can be claimed. To some extent it’s a right thought , but Imagine that some has a sole unit and get burnt. What are the impacts after the sad Incident? 1. The Manufacturer is out of Business from the very next day. 2. The insurance Claims , are settles but , this takes a long period. 3. The entire set up has to be rebuilt. 4. The rebuilding cost is always on higher side , even after considering that the Policies are based on Over Invoicing for all the Raw Materials , Equipment etc. 5. In case of casualties, the Company has to bear a huge damage , not only in terms of Financial burdens , but other Govt. Formalities, The nuisance value of concerned Departments, ( especially if you are based in India ) , and on to the top of that a great loss for the Organisation is loosing a Hard to find Human Power. The concerned family looses a working hand , and many a time the only earning hand . The Manufacturer can certainly arrange to establish a new manufacturing facility , but what about the Human Power loss. This damage is irreversible. I earnestly request you all to thick on this. 6. There could be a serious damage to the Business Plans. Today , there are ‘N’ number of manufacturers available . the competitors are always in a queue . We live in a Higher commercial World today , and some bodies Loss , could a golden opportunity for other.
  2. 2. 7. We all know , how difficult it is now a day’s to regain your share in the Market , after such a unfortunate incidence. 8. A particular Company may claim for Fire hazards , but at the end of the day , our country is loosing . The Insurance Companies do not pay or reimburse from their pockets. It is ultimately our hard earned money that we keep on paying to the Insurance companies in a way of Policy Premiums. These Insurance company collect a huge amount every year and against this collection , have to settle very low amount in trems of Claims. I have few more incidences to quote here. A Leading Foam Converter ( with PS Adhesive Coated Products ) based in Western Region close to Mumbai , had a major Fire , about a year Ago. Another Leading Silicone coated Liners Manufacturer , based in Western Region close to Mumbai , had a major Fire , about a two year Ago. The entire Plant was burnt and , was out of business for more than a year. A Leading Synthetic Foam Manufacturing Company a MNC , with no of Manufacturing plant spread over the world , ( with PS Adhesive Coated Products ) based in Gulf , had a major Fire , about six months ago. The entire Plant was burnt and , is still out of Manufacturing business as on date. We all are aware that in Gulf countries , the Rules and Regulation are very strict and the Manufacturers have to observe them religiously , with all the precautions , like Fire Fighting equipment, Electrical Installations certified etc. etc. So the point of discuss is , after all Fire is a Accident and nobody can prevent it. We can just plan to avoid / eliminate the chances of Fire . what is it , that we all can do ? . Yes to take at most care in avoiding Fire and the after shocks ? How is it possible ? By selection of Raw Materials that wont catch Fife ? Yes . you are right , here is a time to think of alternative Technologies. Which Technologies are now available ?
  3. 3. Solvent less Technology This is the latest technology available but proves to be bit expensive. The Raw Materials are expensive no doubt , but the Equipment costs are very much on higher side. The modification possibilities of , Final Product Properties , based on these highly specialised Raw materials , are extremely limited. The more suitable alternative is “ Water Borne Technology ”. Please mark my words , it is going to be the Future. There are several advantages , like , Raw materials are much cheaper, Easily available, the Modification of possibilities of , Final Product Properties , based on this Technology , are wide open. One can design a Product matching to other Technologies mentioned above , at a very lower Cost. The compounder has to select , the most suitable additive. Fortunately now there are many manufacturers of such specialty additives. There are quite a good no of Representative operating in India for a large number of Multi National Companies based in Developed Nations. ICHEMCO SRL , ITALY is one of those leading manufacturers. ICHEMCO has many exciting product that are meant for Water Borne Technology. Please feel free to write to me for any further assistance to promote Water borne. Let us Save on our cost, let’s be eco friendly . LETLETLETLET’’’’S GO GREENS GO GREENS GO GREENS GO GREEN
