China Southern Airlines has signed a deal to buy 38 aircraft from U.S. planemaker Boeing Co with a combined price tag of $5.65 billion, the Chinese carrier said on Friday. China's largest airline by passenger numbers has agreed to buy 8 B777-300ER wide body jets and 30 B737-8 narrow bodies, the Chinese firm said in a stock exchange filing. The planes will be delivered between 2019 and 2020 and will be funded through China Southern's own funds and loans from commercial banks, the company said.
As colour marking is the foundation for delivering the right products to the sawmill and to minimise wastage, it is important that the paint is of the right quality. Komatsu CM has shown many advantages over competing brands in performance tests.
Colour marking facilitates the handling of the processed wood and is a prerequisite for the correct product being delivered to the sawmills. The quality of the paint is also an important prerequisite for this process to go smoothly and that no wood will go to waste.
An important factor is the colour intensity, where alcohol-based paints have a relatively low intensity while glycol-based paints have a medium intensity – both types, however, have problems with the colour spreading easily over the cut surface. Komatsu CM on the other hand, which is a water-based product, has a high intensity while the paint does not spread over the cut surface. This leads to clearer and more visible markings that help the operator while reducing colour consumption.
Something that can affect the final price of the product is if the paint has penetrated the wood and thus destroyed parts of it. Paint based on both alcohol and glycol have problems with the paint easily penetrating too deep into the wood, causing a lot of wastage for sawmills. Komatsu CM only adheres to the top layer of the wood, about 2-4 mm, resulting in a better end product. Another advantage is that Komatsu CM does not cause any corrosion, which is usually a problem with alcohol and glycol-based paints.
For both the environment at large and the operator’s work environment it is very important what the paint consists of. Glycol is hazardous to health while methanol belongs to the group of chemicals that are toxic alternatively can cause serious or long term health damage. Komatsu CM, on the other hand, is water-based with additives used in the food industry. It lacks warning signs all together and is completely harmless to humans and to the environment.
Overall, the tests show that Komatsu CM has great advantages in terms of quality and environment. The characteristics of the paint mean that consumption is lower compared to other brands, while improving the performance. In conclusion, Komatsu CM provides a good end product, something that both operators and machine owners as well as sawmills profit from.

By Jan Carl Matysiak* It is a rare outstanding forest with an innumerable number of over 100 year old trees. It is one of the last places where you can find free roaming wisent. And it is the very last primeval forest in Europe. Bialowieza is on the border of Poland and Belarus. So you can only be left speechless when you hear Jan Szyszko Poland’s environmental minister. He stated ”The Białowieża forest was granted UNESCO natural heritage status illegally. …

New solutions for pre-fabricated engineered bamboo house design in China hopes to set the tone for future green construction. The house design, which was managed by INBAR’s long-term partner the International Centre for Bamboo and Rattan (ICBR), uses lightweight steel frames as load-bearing components, with bamboo-based panels as building enclosures, such as walls and roofs. […]

There's a mental calculation most people do upon shattering their iPhone screen: Should I fix it immediately, or wait and buy a whole new phone? In the past, Apple has used a two-year cycle when designing iPhones. It's that timeline — which Apple only recently moved away from with the release of the iPhone 7, and did again with the iPhone 8 — that has traditionally impacted when people opt to fix their screen.

New technology to stream music into dashboards or boost fuel efficiency is making cars less reliable, although electric cars such as the Tesla Model 3 and the Chevrolet Bolt should fare better than many conventional models, Consumer Reports magazine said on Thursday. Electric cars do away with many of the mechanical systems that prompt consumer complaints about conventional cars, the magazine said.
