Editor's Note

Buy Malaysia, Smart Choice!

Yipee! End of the year is here and the kids are on holidays. To our readers, we like to take this opportunity to wish you,

"Merry Christmas
Happy New Year"

All in all, I think it has been quite a good year even-though the world went through an "economic crisis". Things are now starting to look positive and we certainly look forward to next year.

In our previous newsletter, we featured an article titled "Dissimilar Materials". To this, a number of readers have suggested that we convert this article into a technical journal so that it can be downloaded from our website. We thank you for your suggestions and we will consider it.

In this issue, we will feature our latest technical journal, "Steel Cladding for Animal Confinement Buildings". We hope this journal will be useful to our readers, especially designers or owners of cattle or poultry businesses.

Last but not least, we would like to remind you, our KL office will be shifting to the new premises during the first week of December.

Thank you.

Team leader & Editor

TECHNICAL JOURNAL-Steel Cladding for Animal Confinement Buildings
Animal confinement buildings are highly corrosive environments. The waste products generated contain sulfides, ureas, amines and other corrosive agents. They are rich in bacteria that oxidize the waste materials to organic acids that readily attack aluminum, iron, and zinc. Dust typically carries bacteria to all interior areas of the building. The constant high humidity from the animals, the waste and the cleaning water adds to the corrosivity of the environment.

Direct contact of the building panels with animal wastes will quickly corrode and perforate the steel. The moisture will carry the corrosive ingredients through any paint film, corroding painted steel.

Technical Presentation at JKR Labuan
A technical presentation was recently conducted by Colourcoil Industries to the staff and personnel of JKR (Jabatan Kerja Raya) or the Public Works Department of Labuan on 9th October 2009 at the JKR Labuan office headquarters.

The presentation was attended by almost 25 staff and personnel comprising the department engineers, architects and technicians. As mentioned time and time again, Colourcoil Industries is dedicated to educating and improving the standards and professionalism of the metal roofing & wall cladding industry. Hence, emphasize of the presentation was on the importance of selecting high grade materials for roofing and cladding applications. Many were surprised to know that all the pre-painted steel for whole roofing of the nearby PETRONAS administration building at Labuan headquarters office was actually supplied by us! It was in ELITE SeriesTM with a specially formulated colour which was customized to suit the companys corporate colour, green.

We are happy to note that the Federal Government, through JKR, are already taking very strict measures to ensure that the quality of the materials they specify and propose in their buildings are SIRIM or IKRAM certified. Colourcoil Industries wish to remind our readers that apart from complying with international ASTM standards, locally our materials have also been SIRIM tested and IKRAM certified. All this accompanied with our mill warranty will definitely give you the assurance you need and peace of mind!

Colourcoil Industries specially thanks the organizers, Pn. Norhaizan Bt. Baharudin (Asst. Architecture Officer) and En. Mohd Yusoff B. Awang (Architect) for the invitation and opportunity to conduct the presentation. Not forgetting many thanks too to the other staff and personnel for attending and their kind attention.

BEAUTIFUL METAL ROOFS - Bungalow, Petaling Jaya
This bungalow has a very modern look with very clean lines. The designer has opted to use metal standing seam roofing as the pitch roofs are rather flat. With the standing seam metal roof profile, the home owner can rest assure that his family will live in a home that will be virtually leak-free for many years to come. (Standing seam roofs use special hidden clip systems that can allow for thermal movement of the roofing sheet. There are no visible screws, no puncturing of the roofing sheet, and each roof panels are seamed to the next panel using a special seaming machine).

Roof Type: Standing Seam Profile
