|Did you know that more commercial, military, and business aviation pilots fly behind PPG windshields than any other? ||
Planes that fly lighter, look better, and offer a flying experience that really transports us.
Today, it comes as no surprise that airlines are as interested in reducing fuel costs and carbon emissions as they are in branding the planes in their fleet.
At PPG, our lighter coatings and sealants significantly cut the weight of each aircraft, helping to cut aviation’s fuel consumption and saving real money each time the plane flies. And, in an important win for the environment, reduced fuel usage means a smaller carbon footprint—another important place where airlines are looking to make a difference.
Taking innovation and cost-saving options to new heights.
PPG products help to reduce costs and the carbon footprint while providing innovative options in coatings, sealants, transparencies, and color for the aviation industry. We’ve put advanced technology to work in a variety of ways. For example, our cockpit windows help improve safety by dramatically reducing glare and repelling rainwater. Our new electrochromic ALTEOS™ interactive window systems reduce cabin-cooling requirements while enhancing passenger comfort. We even supply fiber glass for lightweight composite parts.
