PPG (NYSE: PPG) will display its full range of integrated transportation coatings technologies for rail, trailer and intermodal applications during Intermodal EXPO 2017 at the Long Beach Convention Center in California, Sept. 17-19.
PPG is one of the few companies in the world to offer products and technical expertise across a broad range of technology platforms. Pretreatment products on display will include surface cleaners and zinc-rich and zirconium-based primers, which PPG engineered to maximize the ability of its liquid, e-coat and powder coatings to resist corrosion and extend the service life of trucks, trailers and shipping containers.
PPG also will showcase SPECTRACRON® solvent-based and AQUACRON® ultra-low-VOC (volatile organic compound) water-based primers and topcoats. Both products are available in a broad range of colors and in acrylic, alkyd, epoxy and urethane formulations.
Visitors to the PPG booth will find information about POWERCRON® e-coats and ENVIROCRON® powder coatings. Powercron coatings, the industry’s most commonly used e-coat products, provide exceptional protection against corrosion and ultraviolet (UV) exposure for specialty frames and chassis-related components. Envirocron powder coatings are hard, durable, cost-effective coatings that provide exceptional corrosion- and weather-resistance in proven solvent-free, low-VOC formulations.
Thomas McAfee, PPG national accounts manager, transportation, said shippers, carriers, logistics companies and the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that supply them rely on PPG for integrated, single-source asset-protection solutions.
“PPG coatings are engineered to protect and add color, including branding and logos, to almost every surface of a truck, trailer or shipping container,” explained McAfee. “Even more importantly, PPG supports its products and customers with a global network of manufacturing plants, research and development labs, and sales and technical support centers.”
Sponsored annually by the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA), the Intermodal EXPO showcases the industry’s latest products and services and addresses its toughest issues and challenges. Attendees include professionals from ocean carriers, motor carriers and drayage companies; railroads; equipment manufacturers and leasing companies; as well as technology vendors and beneficial cargo owners (BCOs).
