PPG introduces new family of coil coatings in the USA
Article Type: New materials and equipments From: Pigment
PPG Industries' coil and extrusion coatings business has introduced Durastar and Truform HP coatings, a line of roll-applied coil coatings, as a lower-cost alternative to its Duranar and Coraflon coatings.
Available in Europe and Australia for seven years, Durastar coatings feature an enhanced super polyester formulation with better flexibility, stain resistance, dirt pick up and recoatability.
The introduction of Durastar coatings in the USA is a demonstration of PPG's aggressive commitment to service and innovation in the building coatings industry.
As PPG's mid-range coil coating, Durastar coatings deliver all the benefits and properties of silicone-modified polyester (SMP) coatings without their typical application limitations, the company said. Because Durastar coatings also contain a UV radiation absorber, they also demonstrate greater resistance to fading and UV damage than standard SMP coatings. Like Duranar fluoropolymer coatings, Durastar coatings are also available in infrared- reflective formulations, which make them ideal for energy-conscious installations such as restaurants, gas stations and retail stores.
