PPG, Steelscape announce marketing alliance

Companies to jointly market colorful DAZZLE interior metal panel coverings

PITTSBURGH, July 30, 2010 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) and Steelscape will jointly market DAZZLE(R) colorful metallic coverings for walls, ceilings and other interior surfaces and accessories.

The new line of Dazzle coverings features TRUFORM(R) tinted clear coatings by PPG applied to galvanized TRUZINC(R) panels by Steelscape. The products are available in 16 distinct color options encompassing eight tinted clearcoats and two gloss levels. Because of their clearcoat appearance, TRUFORM tinted coatings enable Dazzle coverings to join the natural spangle of TruZinc products with a vivid color palette.

Suggested applications for Dazzle coverings include column covers, wall panels, decorative ceilings, heating and cooling equipment and walk-in coolers. The product also provides a colorful alternative to white boards because it resists dry-erase and permanent markers.

Dazzle coverings are resistant to fingerprints, stains, graffiti, scratches and marring. For building owners, this durability means less maintenance along with the ability to add color without the disruption of painting. It also is lighter and less expensive than other materials.

To learn more about Dazzle coverings, call Steelscape at 1-888-285-7717 or visit www.steelscape.com.
