Angelo Sas becomes new Sales Manager Germany

We are expanding the scope of our sales activities and, in addition to our national business, we will now also increasingly focus on international business. After a long period of successful management of the German sales department, Christian Henke will head our newly initiated export division. With Mr. Henke, we will benefit from his experience as a sales manager as well as from his many years of affiliation with CENARIS.

The national sales business will be managed by Angelo Sas in the future. Mr. Sas, who has been with the company since 2015, previously held various positions in internal sales and will now manage the national business in close cooperation with Mr. Henke. With this change, we at CENARIS are relying on the strengths and experience of our colleagues and on a forward-looking, in-house succession solution.

 

Classification of titanium dioxide

With Regulation (EU) 2020/2017, the EU Commission has published that the white pigment titanium dioxide is to be classified as a category 2 carcinogen with the hazard statement "May probably cause cancer by inhalation" (14th ATP to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008). Consequently, powdery mixtures as well as liquid mixtures containing titanium dioxide have to be labelled. This applies to mixtures containing more than 1% titanium dioxide particles with an aerodynamic diameter < 10 micrometres.

An independent testing institute has carried out tests on powder coatings with regard to the aerodynamic diameter and the titanium dioxide content. The tests carried out in accordance with DIN EN 15051-2 came to the conclusion that the powder coatings tested and their wastes contain significantly less than 1 percentage point by weight of titanium dioxide with an aerodynamic diameter < 10 micrometres.

Our powder coatings therefore do not meet the criteria for classification as carcinogenic provided for in the CLP regulations and therefore do not need to be labelled.

 

Guest at the 31st Powder Symposium in Dresden

From 14 to 15 September 2021, we were guests at the 31st Powder Symposium in Dresden. At Germany's largest industry get-together, we exchanged views with experts on the latest products, advances and challenges in the powder coatings industry.
 
The annual symposium at the International Congress Center Dresden offers the opportunity to take part in a wide range of specialist presentations and discussions and to exchange ideas on topics such as optimisation potential in the field of powder application, sustainable and resource-saving coating or the improvement of quality requirements.
