Innovative solutions are clearly the primary emphasis at PPG. Products like PPG's Enviro-Prime® 2000 Lead Free Electrocoat contribute to increased vehicle life spans without environmental concerns. Topcoat products like EnviroBase® waterborne basecoat and Enviracryl® Powder Clearcoat give "green products" a robust new image at a highly competitive cost with clearly superior performance advantages. Ceramiclear® clearcoat has set a new standard for combined resistance to scratches, mars, and acid etch. This clearcoat is the first to use nanoparticle technology. The proof is the many awards these products have received from the market place, including the prestigious Automotive News PACE award, the R&D 100 award and the Market Engineering and Design award, to name just a very few. PPG has also commercialized Durabed® sprayable bedliner, the world's first OEM-applied, high performance spray-on truck bedliner. PPG has been on the forefront of automotive coatings innovation since its beginnings in 1924. Whether the issue is corrosion protection, environmental application concerns or vehicle finish performance improvements, PPG Automotive Coatings has been the responsible leader. Today's automotive manufacturer and consumer are increasingly more sophisticated about the issue of fit and finish in their vehicles. PPG's ability to meet those ever increasing requirements is a hallmark of its employees worldwide.
