PPG Introduces PPG Durastar® Ultra-Durable Industrial Spray Coating
One-Coat System For Aluminum Extrusions Meets AAMA 2604 Specification
Pittsburgh, PA - PPG (NYSE: PPG) has introduced PPG Durastar® ultra-durable industrial spray coating, a one-coat application for aluminum extrusions that meets the exterior durability requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s AAMA 2604 specification (five-year South Florida exposure).
Composed of a proprietary PPG-developed polyester resin, PPG Durastar spray coating can be applied direct-to-metal (DTM) or over a primer. It provides excellent corrosion resistance, color fastness, and chalk-, scratch- and mar-resistance for high-end building products and components used in storefronts, schools, hospitals and other high-traffic areas.
Brian Knapp, PPG director, coil and building products, said the versatility and hardness of PPG Durastar spray coating give value-oriented window, door and building product manufacturers a cost-effective option for achieving AAMA 2604 weathering performance without the associated cost premium.
“Whether applied directly over metal or a primer for enhanced performance in seacoast environments, PPG Durastar spray coating provides exceptional substrate protection at a cost that is competitive with AAMA 2603-level coatings,” said Knapp.
To help manufacturers meet environmental mandates, PPG Durastar spray coating is lead-free and features low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and low hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). It is available in a wide range of solid colors in all gloss levels.
