PPG publishes new color guide for DURANAR liquid coatings

Booklet contains 84 coil and extrusion colors

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 22, 2008 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business has published a new color guide for Duranar liquid coil and extrusion coatings.

The guide has been expanded from 66 colors to 84 and now contains color codes for both coil and extrusion coatings. Previously, PPG published separate color guides for each.

The guide depicts 28 Duranar coatings solid colors and an equal number of Duranar XL metallic coatings, as well as 28 Duranar Sunstorm mica coatings. Each of the 84 colors has separate codes to distinguish between its coil and extrusion versions.

Samples of Duranar coatings colors are available in two panel sizes through www.requestppg.com. Standard-sized samples are still free, while larger color-coated panels are available for a nominal charge. PPG no longer offers medium-sized sample panels, and sample colors from the previous Duranar coatings color guide will not be available after Dec. 31.

For more information, or to order a Duranar coatings color guide, visit www.requestppg.com or call 1-888-PPG-IDEA (774-4332).
