PPG representatives, including Lynsey Hankins, PPG color and design manager, will be on hand in booth 3011 to provide in-depth information on the products and services the company offers to architects, designers and others.

“The AIA Conference on Architecture 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 showcase 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 before possible with powder, including mineral tones, textures, and anodized, stone and terracotta appearances. It is compliant with the Fenestration and Glazing Industrial Alliance and American Architectural Manufacturers Association (FGIA/AAMA) 2605 standard.

Trusted by architects and designers for more than 50 years, PPG Duranar coil and extrusion polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coatings deliver proven aesthetics and durability for buildings of distinction around the world, including the Empire State Building and the Pyramid at the Louvre. Most recently, PPG coatings were used to protect and enhance Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the Bulletin Building in Philadelphia, Hudson Yards in New York City and Centene Stadium in St. Louis.

PPG Durastar siliconized polyester (SMP) coating delivers an ultra-durable, one-coat system and provide a smooth, finished appearance, all while offering exceptional hardness and scratch- and mar-resistance. The coatings are engineered for specific industry applications with durable pigments for lasting color, hardness and stain resistance.

Ideal for new construction and the restoration of existing architectural metal, PPG Coraflon ADS coating is a field-applied fluoropolymer that delivers factory performance in a two-component air-dry system.

Copper Armor paint is an EPA-registered anti-viral and anti-bacterial* paint containing CORNING® GUARDIANT® technology that is proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses^, including SARS-CoV-2, on the painted surface in two hours. The product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination as mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens.

Visitors also can learn about PPG’s high-performance coatings for flooring, including general purpose, chemical- and wear-resistant formulations, and PPG PSX™ 700 coating, which is a patented breakthrough for long-term steel protection.
