PPG offers CORASHIELD waterborne anti-chip coating


STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, June 29, 2009 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) commercial coatings has introduced Corashield coating, an environmentally-responsible coating formulated to provide resistance to chipping, cracking and marring of painted or unpainted surfaces from high-impact sand, gravel or other abrasive material.

According to Dave Chapman, marketing director, PPG Commercial Coatings, Corashield coating is ideal for use on underbodies, inner wheel wells, fender liners, interior door panels, running boards and similar applications. As a versatile, single-component product, Corashield coating can be applied by spraying, brushing or rolling onto exposed surfaces and by spray wands into restricted areas.

“This is an extremely effective coating,” Chapman said. “Manufacturers have used Corashield coating with great success. It’s suitable for application over steel, aluminum, fiber glass and most metal primers, plus it can be topcoated. As a waterborne, zero-VOC product, it’s also ecologically sound.”

Corashield coating features:
  • Excellent chip, crack, mar and corrosion resistance
  • A high performance-to-price ratio
  • A zero-volatile organic compound and non-hazardous air pollutant coating
  • Light weight and sag resistance – wet film build of up to 40 mils can be applied without runs or drips
