In recent years, with the release of VOC emission standards and the release of the coating consumption tax policy at the beginning of the year, domestic consumers are paying more attention to the environmental protection of coating products. Environmentally friendly coatings have ushered in new development opportunities, and how do coating companies Green environmental transformation and sustainable development have become the focus of the entire coatings industry.
Since February 1, 2015, the state has imposed a 4% consumption tax on paints. The enterprises and units involved in the production, entrustment and import of paints are also subject to taxation notices. The taxation notice also clearly states that VOCs are under construction conditions. Coatings with a content of less than 420 g/l (inclusive) are exempt from consumption tax. As soon as the policy was released, it quickly attracted widespread attention in the coatings industry.
Today, the paint consumption tax has been implemented for half a year, and the impact on national paint sales is gradually emerging. According to data from the China Business Research Institute and the National Bureau of Statistics, from January to June 2015, China's total paint production was 7,778,400 tons, a year-on-year increase of only 1.42%. In the first two months of this year, the national total output of paints increased by 11.68% year-on-year, and the growth rate in March fell to 3.78%. In April, the total amount of paint production in the country showed the first negative growth in 13 months, down 4.95% year-on-year.
In the context of marketed products, rising costs, and fierce competition, the 4% tax rate means that paint companies have to spend millions more each year on the production and operation of oil-based coatings, so many companies have to announce price increases, to some extent. This has led to a decline in sales of coating products.
“The oil paint industry is under pressure and it is good for the development of water-based paints. Under such a background, a large number of domestic paint companies are also undergoing transformation, and coating companies can only seek for green products and high-quality products and comprehensive solutions. Subsequent survival development.
Water-based paint is a coating that uses water as a diluent and does not contain organic solvents. It has the advantages of saving resources, reducing pollution, and adaptability. The research on the coating process of waterborne wood coatings. If you think of "three-point paint, seven-point paint" as a spell that paints and curses paint, then this spell is more effective for water-based paint. Since the coating effect of water-based paint is closely related to factors such as ambient temperature, humidity, construction process, and coating substrate, the construction tolerance is far worse than that of oil-based paint. Therefore, it is necessary to obtain the same degree of coating effect as oil-based paint. The key research and mastery of the water-based paint coating process is a major issue that water-based paint workers cannot avoid and is imminent.
