The company will highlight its PPG CORAFLON Platinum Powder Coating, PPG DURANAR Liquid Coating, PPG DURASTAR Liquid Coating, PPG DURAFORM Liquid Coating and PPG CORAFLON ADS Field Applied Coating. Also on display will be PPG’s COPPER ARMOR™ liquid coating, which is an interior paint with antiviral and antibacterial properties. PPG representatives, including Lynsey Hankins, PPG Color and Design Manager, will be on hand at booth 3011 to provide detailed information about the company’s products and services to architects, designers and others.
“The AIA Architecture Conference is the industry’s most anticipated annual event,” said Kevin Braun, PPG vice president, global, Industrial Coatings. “Since we last met two years ago, PPG has launched several new innovations for the architectural market, including PPG Coraflon Platinum and Copper Armor coatings. We’re excited to talk to visitors in person about these advancements, as well as showcasing our extensive color services and tools.
One of the company’s newest product offerings, PPG Coraflon Platinum Powder Coating is a patent-pending fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) fluoropolymer coating. The new product can create finishes never possible with powder, including mineral tones, anodized, stone and terracotta textures and looks. It complies with the Fenestration and Glazing Industrial Alliance and American Architectural Manufacturers Association (FGIA/AAMA) Standard 2605.
Trusted by architects and designers for over 50 years, PPG Duranar polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coil and extrusion coatings deliver proven aesthetics and durability for buildings of distinction around the world, including the Empire State Building and the Louvre Pyramid. More recently, PPG coatings have been used to protect and enhance Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the Bulletin Building in Philadelphia, Hudson Yards in New York and Centene Stadium in St. Louis.
PPG Durastar Siliconized Polyester (SMP) coating provides an ultra-durable one-coat system and provides a smooth, finished appearance, while providing exceptional hardness and resistance to scuffing and scuffing. Coatings are designed for specific industrial applications with durable pigments for long lasting color, hardness and stain resistance.
Ideal for new construction and restoring existing architectural metal, PPG Coraflon ADS Coating is a field-applied fluoropolymer that delivers factory performance in a two-component, air-cured system.
Copper Armor paint is an EPA registered antiviral and antibacterial* paint containing CORNING® GUARDIANT technology proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses^, including SARS-CoV-2 , on the painted surface in two hours. Product efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination, as required by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens.
Visitors can also learn about PPG’s high performance coatings for flooring, including general purpose, chemical and wear resistant formulations, and the PPG PSX™ 700 coating, which is a patented breakthrough for long-term protection of steel. Participants are encouraged to explore the world of color with free gifts from PPG THE VOICE OF COLOR tools.
