PPG introduces continuing education program on liquid, powder coatings


PITTSBURGH, July 30, 2008 –
PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business has introduced an American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems registered program called Architectural Applications for Liquid & Powder Fluoropolymer Coatings. Architects can earn AIA/CES Learning Units and stay current on the latest building construction and specification issues with this course – the latest addition to an expanding roster of continuing education programs PPG offers to architects and building professionals.

The three learning objectives of the new AIA/CES program are to enable architects to:

• Understand the advantages of liquid and powder coatings for use on architectural aluminum building components,

• Learn the environmental considerations and performance requirements of liquid and powder coatings, and

• Gain a better understanding of color, gloss and aesthetic considerations for liquid and powder coatings.

PPG offers various free AIA/CES registered programs on topics related to architectural glass, paint and high-performance metal coatings. The courses are taught by PPG representatives throughout the United States, and can be scheduled as lunch presentations at architectural firms or at the time and place of a firm’s choice. Each course lasts approximately one hour.
