Key Facts

  • PPG's aerospace coatings are qualified to more commercial and general aviation specifications than any other supplier.
    • More than one thousand types of coatings available, offering the industry’s broadest product line.
    • Coatings can be applied on numerous substrates including fiberglass, composites, and metallic surfaces for superior resistance to corrosion, chemicals and rain erosion.
  • PPG's aerospace transparencies portfolio includes aircraft windshields, side windows, cabin windows, canopies, landing light lenses, lightweight transparent armor, and hydrophobic coatings for windshields.
    • The Boeing 787 features electrochromic PPG ALTEOS® interactive window systems that dim at the touch of button, reducing cabin-cooling requirements while enhancing passenger comfort.
    • PPG is the only supplier in the world that can provide a structurally loaded window that does not require a heavy frame around it - a significant cost and weight savings for the OEMs.
    • Besides aircraft, PPG's transparencies technology is used in transparent armor for military vehicles, buildings and rail. 
PPG's Aerospace Customized Sealant Solutions (CSS) come in preformed shapes: Seal caps, Formed in Place strips (FIP), and PPG Semfoam® Kits.

Packaging and Application Systems deliver custom solutions for single and multi-compoenent adhesives, sealants, coatings, and lubricants.

PPG's goal is to bring more effective management of chemicals through the entire product life cycle, thus reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for our customers.
