"The commercial marine market in the U.S. and Canada continues to be very competitive, and owners are looking for products that can give them an edge as well as high performance"

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PPG (NYSE: PPG) today announced the U.S. and Canada launch of PPG NOVAGUARD® 810 ER coating, which protects fuel tanks, ballast tanks and the internal and external superstructures of tugs and barges. The high-performance product’s one-coat, direct-to-metal formulation delivers very fast application times and faster return to service after coating, with touch-ups possible using a thin-film epoxy.

“The commercial marine market in the U.S. and Canada continues to be very competitive, and owners are looking for products that can give them an edge as well as high performance,” says Al Kaminsky, PPG marine manager, protective and marine coatings, U.S. and Canada. “PPG NOVAGUARD 810 ER passes on the advantages of cost savings and high performance to customers, enabling them to work their assets harder while being assured of extended service life.”

PPG NOVAGUARD 810 ER coating is a two-component, solvent-free, amine rapid-cured novolac epoxy coating. It offers a true high build (20 to 40 mils) with superior edge retention and a smooth finish for easy cleaning and inspection. The applicator-friendly coating allows single-coat coverage to a wet film thickness of more than 50 mils without curtaining, sagging or running. Its optically active pigment (OAP) technology also enables non-destructive ultraviolet (UV) light holiday detection.

In addition to PPG NOVAGUARD 810 ER coating, PPG recently unveiled PPG SIGMASHIELD® 880 high-performance coating for the offshore market in the U.S. and Canada. This multipurpose, surface-tolerant epoxy protects assets in extreme marine environments, including offshore infrastructure and all types of offshore support vessels.
