    Ministry of Finance, State Administration of Taxation on January 26 issued "on batteries,
    consumption tax notice", from February 1 on the paint consumption tax, in the production, commissioned processing and import links, the applicable tax rate is 4%. No consumption tax is waived on coatings with volatile organic matter (VOC) content below 420 g/L (inclusive) during construction. Industry insiders in an interview with The China Chemical News, said that this will accelerate the process of greening the paint industry, many enterprises have low VOC as the direction of product upgrading, compared with the coating process of environmental upgrading is more critical.
    industry insiders said that the construction state of VOC content is not higher than 420 g / liter requirements are relatively relaxed, and because the Ministry of Environmental Protection and China Coatings Industry Association has conducted many rounds of discussions on this matter, so the work of industrial upgrading has already begun. Liu Xin, technical manager of Jotun Coatings (Zhangjiagang) Co., Ltd., said that the current level of technology in the industry can fully meet this requirement, but some small
    coatings enterprises
    are not willing to invest money and energy to upgrade products to reduce VOC emissions levels. Small and medium-sized enterprises must eliminate backward products and accelerate upgrading. Some small businesses that weren't prepared before may be caught off guard.
    deputy general manager of Carberry Chemical Group Co., Ltd., which has been involved in the
    water-based coatings
    industry for more than a decade, said: "The entire paint market will face a reshuffle with the introduction of a consumption tax." Most legally produced products are up to standard. Some underqualified businesses may face greater challenges. As
    saying goes, three-point paint, seven-point coating. For reducing environmental impact and protecting consumer health, environmental protection of the coating process is even more critical. Coatings industry environmental protection upgrade landing point to be placed in the entire supply service chain. Hebei Chenyang Industry and Trade Group Co., Ltd., a senior engineer who has been committed to the research and development and production of water-based coatings, said: "The addition of some solvents in the coating process may increase the voC emissions of coatings." 420 g / liter this indicator for solvent-based coatings is relatively loose, many solvent-based coatings can meet the requirements. Solvent-based coatings generally in 20% to 30%, 420 g / liter equivalent to about 40% of the solid content, to the current level of technology, can fully produce high-solid content solvent-based coating products. However, if 20% or even 50% of the solvent is added to the coating process, VOC emissions may exceed 420 g/L.
    Longping also pointed out that the GST New Deal focuses on VOC emissions from the coating process, which not only requires the paint products themselves to be environmentally friendly, including the construction link, but also the entire production supply chain to achieve environmental protection.
    it is understood that the VOC content of solvent-based coatings used in different industries is very different. For example, in
    anti-corrosion coatings
    , traditional chlorinated rubber coatings, ethylene resin coatings, perchlorinated polyethylene coatings and alicic acid resin coatings, such as VOCs are relatively high, some are more difficult to reduce.
    industry also said that the 4% consumption tax is not a small number, consumers may feel that some paint products are higher prices, which will affect the competitiveness of high VOC content products.
    Industry view
    Coating hydration is not the only direction
    Jotun Coatings (Zhangjiagang) Co., Ltd. technical manager Liu Xin: the introduction of the paint consumption tax New Deal is mainly aimed at promoting the application of low VOC coatings. However, some water-based coatings voC content is not low, so water-based coatings are not necessarily environmentally friendly, high-solid coatings, water-based UV-cured coatings,
    powder coatings
    are the direction of the transformation of the paint industry.
    liu Dengliang, director of the expert committee of China Coatings Industry Association: Different coating process, environmental conditions vary greatly, coupled with more types of paint applications, water-based coatings can not meet all user requirements, can not completely replace solvent-based coatings. Therefore, water-based coatings are not the only upgrade direction, all high-solid coatings have potential.
    Looking forward to the implementation of the Rules
    water-based wood coatings
    Technology Alliance President Yang Xian: the introduction of the consumption tax policy will promote the industry "oil-to-water" upgrade, but the construction state of VOC content is less than 420 grams / liter, this value is not well defined. Does this mean factory testing or peripheral testing? And sometimes the construction environment conditions are not consistent, may be 420 grams / liter in the morning, 420 grams / liter in the afternoon below. However, the introduction of policies can provide a guide for the transformation of the industry.
    , Hebei Chenyang Industry and Trade Group Co., Ltd. senior engineer Hua Dong bolt: the introduction of consumption tax for water-based coatings is good, but the current implementation rules have not yet been issued. How to prove that our water-based coatings are not within the scope of taxation, and whether to pass the certification of testing institutions, but also to wait for the state to issue further implementation rules.
