PPG to highlight coatings for tough environments at 2019 Frame Building Expo

PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that it will showcase its full range of building product coatings and barn and shed coatings during the 2019 Frame Building Expo at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, March 6-8.

The main feature in PPG’s booth will be a mini-shed finished with a different color of PPG AQUACRON® 200 waterborne acrylic polyurethane coating on each of its four sidewalls. The mini-shed will be topped with a cool metal roof protected by PPG DURANAR® ULTRA-COOL® coatings.

Launched in 2018, PPG Aquacron 200 coatings offer building product manufacturers a high-performance alternative to value-priced alkyd and standard acrylic-enamel products. In addition to being available in a broad pallette of solid colors and semi-transparent stains, PPG Aquacron 200 coatings are exceptionally hard, fast-drying, ultraviolet-resistant (UV-resistant) and compatible with a wide range of substrates.

PPG also will display the following products:

  • PPG Aquacron 100 acrylic enamel coatings, which are designed with high sag resistance to promote easy application. The coatings are ideal for one-coat coverage and for substrates such as engineered and pre-primed boards and T-111 wood siding.
  • PPG Duranar ULTRA-Cool 70-percent polyvinylidene (PVDF) coatings featuring PPG’s exclusive infrared-reflective (IR-reflective) pigment technology. Available in an array of light, medium and dark colors, these advanced coatings enable building product manufacturers to meet cool roof performance criteria established by LEED®, ENERGY STAR® and Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) programs.
  • PPG DURAFORM® BP (building product) coatings, which provide value-oriented protection and beauty to gutters, downspouts, flagpoles, metal fencing, awnings, metal doors and similar components. The coatings feature a proprietary high-performance polymer developed by PPG.
