PITTSBURGH, Oct. 2, 2018 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) announced today that it will display several new and recently introduced architectural metal coatings at METALCON 2018 at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina, Oct. 10-12.

PPG will be showcasing PPG DURANAR® MXL and PPG CORAFLON® MXL coatings, two new polychromatic formulations engineered to add heightened dimensions of brilliance and luster to metal-clad buildings. Developed in response to increased architect demand for a wider selection of metallic and colorful coatings, Duranar MXL and Coraflon MXL coatings are infused with best-in-class special effects adapted from PPG’s automotive OEM coatings. The result is a three-dimensional aesthetic that shifts subtly in color and offers a highly reflective sparkle in direct sunlight.

Visitors to the PPG booth also will find information about the following products, which were recently introduced to the market: 

  • PPG DURABRITE® coatings are robust direct-to-metal coatings specially formulated to extend and enrich the beauty of architectural metals by protecting them with a resilient, transparent clearcoat. 
  • PPG DURAFORM® wrinkle-texture coatings are the newest addition to the Duraform BP (building products) family of coatings. They feature a unique finish that significantly increases abrasion resistance compared to standard polyester coatings, while adding a sparkle effect that enhances the texture of the surrounding materials.

In addition to new products, PPG will showcase its full range of traditional Duranar, Duranar ULTRA-COOL® and Duranar VARI-COOL® coatings.

METALCON was established in 1991 and is now the largest international event in the metal construction industry and the only annual tradeshow and conference devoted entirely to the application of metal in industrial, institutional, light commercial and residential projects.
