PPG PMC business earns George Campbell Award

Recognized for coatings performance at Massachusetts water treatment plant

 

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 4, 2010 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE: PPG) protective and marine coatings (PMC) business has been selected as a recipient of The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) George Campbell Award for 2009-2010.

PPG PMC earned the recognition for the performance of Amerlock 2/400 coating at the Deer Island Water Treatment Facility in Boston Harbor, the second-largest water treatment plant in the United States. The product, a fast-setting, high-solids epoxy coating, was applied to a gravity thickener at the plant.

Steve Feldman, PPG national sales director, protective coatings, North America, said, “Winning the Campbell Award was truly a team effort and the result of extraordinary coordination with our customers and within our teams.”

The George Campbell Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the completion of a difficult or complex industrial commercial coatings project. PPG will receive the honor next month at the Paint and Decorating Contractors of America (PACE) Conference in Phoenix as part of the SSPC annual meeting. The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, owner of the Deer Island plant, and coatings contractor SOEP Painting Corp. of Malden, Mass., will receive the award in conjunction with PPG.

Its PMC products protect customers’ assets in some of the world’s most demanding conditions and environments, covering projects in energy, infrastructure and marine markets.
