Environmental Responsibility

Finding Ways To Nurture The World Around Us

As a manufacturing company, we’re responsible for protecting and safeguarding the environment in which we operate. We don’t just utter reassuring words about the environment. We take positive steps to reduce the environmental impact of what we do.

Our Environmental Objectives Are To:

• Prevent pollution of air and water
• Consume fewer natural resources
• Eliminate polluting emission to the workplace and external environment
• Minimise, re-use, recover and recycle waste wherever possible
• Consider the environmental effects of raw materials and their sourcing
• Encourage sound health, safety and environmental practices by suppliers, sub-contractors and customers.
• Provide the necessary information to customers to ensure that our product can be used, transported, stored and disposed of safely and without risk to people health or the environment.

Key Materials We Use

Packaging

In an attempt to minimise the wastage from our factory, here at DJS Qualicoaters, we re-use as much packaging material that we can. Ideally we aim to use the same material to package and send back to our clients that we receive it in. The wooden Bases, sides and cleats are used where possible and the cardboard re-used to protect the finished product. All the plastic wastage that cannot be re-used is collected in large bundles for recycling.
Plastic spiral wrap is the most efficient and effective way to wrap individual pieces and/or bundles of aluminium.

Aluminium

Aluminium used in the building and construction industry contains a high percentage of both post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content. At the end of its long, useful life, a building application is 100% recyclable.

Aluminium building components can be repeatedly recycled back into similar products with no loss of quality, and aluminium in its various forms provides the most valuable component for most municipal recycling efforts.

Powder Paint

Exceptional Quality – The unique application characteristics of powder coatings provide superior consistency and uniformity of finish without sags, drips, runs or bubbles. They provide extremely tough, durable films enhancing the high quality, value added image of consumer products. In general, the performance properties, such as impact resistance, flexibility, and corrosion resistance, of powder coatings are better than with liquid paints. Powder coated parts resist cracking, peeling, and marring during handling and normal service use. We have found consistently that powder coated finishes require less packaging which lowers overall cost of the product as well as the amount of waste. In many cases, merchandise is specifically being advertised as “POWDER COATED” because of the quality image it projects.

Economical Performance – Powder coatings are frequently a cost saving alternative to liquid paints with respect to the energy savings, labour costs, rework costs, material usage, waste disposal, and overall efficiency. The advantage to manufacturers and the consumers is a coated part with a superior finish at a reasonable cost.

Unlike many liquid paints, powder coatings are compliant with environmental regulations. Liquid paints often contain solvents (volatile organic compounds or VOC’s) and/or heavy metals such as lead, which can contribute to air pollution and, in some cases, ozone depletion. Powder coatings are free of such pollutants. Wet painting processes can generate sludge, which must be disposed of into hazardous waste landfills. Properly formulated powder coatings generate no such hazardous waste. The consumer can feel good about buying a powder-coated product that is environmentally friendly.
