PPG to display environmentally advanced coatings at CONSTRUCT 2012

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 29, 2012 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) will exhibit a complete line of environmentally advanced coil and extrusion coatings at CONSTRUCT 2012 and the Construction Specifier Institute (CSI) National Convention in Phoenix, Sept. 11-14. PPG products on display in booth 507 will include DURANAR(R) liquid and powder coatings.

Based on a resin formulation with a 40-year track record of proven performance, even in difficult seacoast and industrial environments, Duranar liquid and powder coatings each offer unique performance characteristics that appeal to design and specifying architects. Duranar liquid coatings offer superior appearance characteristics, including vibrant metallic and mica formulations that apply smoothly to architectural components. Duranar powder coatings provide hard, abrasion-resistant finishes that are ideal for high-traffic locations and less susceptible to damage during installation, and because they are made without solvents, they emit virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

PPG also will exhibit Duranar ULTRA-COOL(R) and SUPERL(R) II infrared (IR)-reflective coatings for metal building and roof panels. These products deflect heat from buildings to reduce air-conditioning costs and urban heat island effect. They are available in an extensive selection of light and dark colors, including many that meet cool-roof requirements for ENERGY STAR(R), Title 24 and LEED(R) criteria.

For added color options, PPG offers Duranar VARI-COOL(R) coatings, which combine ULTRA-Cool IR-reflective technology with innovative pearlescent, polychromatic pigments that shift color according to ambient lighting conditions and the angle from which they are viewed.
