Consumer Products

The colors that consumers love.

What makes someone choose one mobile phone, or tablet device, or vacuum cleaner over another? Why do some products fly off the shelves, while others collect dust?

This is something Consumer Product OEMs grapple with every day. It's on our minds, too.

PPG knows that color sells. We know that texture and color effect sells. So around here, surface design is sacred. And it's studied feverishly with an emphasis on creative and inspirational color styling that's bound by practical use and application experience.

As your color partner, we'll help you generate color ideas based on cultural, and demographic trends. Coat a wide range of materials and surfaces. Shorten your development cycles. And bring more desirable products to market.

Our global supply and service network see every job through from start to finish. And our application experts are ready whenever you need them to make sure the final product looks the way you intended it to.
