PPG publishes ULTRA-COOL coatings brochure

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 28, 2011 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) coil and extrusion coatings group has published a brochure highlighting colorful DURANAR(R) ULTRA-COOL(R) and SUPERL(R) II ULTRA-Cool infrared-reflective coatings for metal roofs, sidewalls and building components.

The six-page booklet quantifies the energy and environmental benefits associated with ULTRA-Cool coatings, which are designed to deflect solar heat away from buildings so they stay cooler and use less energy for air conditioning.

Duranar ULTRA-Cool coatings are available in a broad palette of light and dark colors, enabling architects to design bold, distinctive buildings without sacrificing energy performance.

The brochure also features Duranar VARI-COOL(R) coatings, the first metal coatings to combine ULTRA-Cool coatings technology with special-effect pigments that change color depending on how light refracts off their surface and the angle from which they are viewed.

Duranar ULTRA-Cool and Duranar VARI-Cool coatings are based on the renowned Duranar PVDF coating system by PPG, which has a 40-year history of proven performance in harsh building environments. The coatings also meet steep-slope, cool roof requirements for ENERGY STAR(R), Title 24 and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) criteria published by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Superl II ULTRA-Cool coatings are formulated with a proprietary silicone-polyester resin technology that provides chalk- and fade-resistance superior to those of other silicone-polyester coatings.
