Navy enlists PPG PMC products for USS Bataan makeover

The 840-foot-long, 40,350-ton USS Bataan, an amphibious assault ship, has a rich history of combat and humanitarian service. When it sets sail again in early 2016, it will once more turn heads thanks to a new paint job featuring PPG Protective and Marine Coatings (PMC) products. Painting contractors are using several PPG PMC products including a multipurpose epoxy on the hull and above-water surfaces, a finish coating, anti-fouling coating, primer, non-skid deck paint, and reflective paint as a topcoat to mark walkways. The PMC products were selected based on their superior performance, PPG’s strong technical support, and PPG’s ability to meet the Navy’s precise requirements for product availability and delivery.

Honda approves PPG for flagship NSX

Even before Honda’s all new flagship sports car, the NSX, reaches its first customers in early 2016, PPG has already received global repair approval from Honda Japan for the stunning supercar.

PPG coatings technology will be applied at Honda’s new Performance Manufacturing Centre in Marysville, Ohio, where the second generation supercar will be produced. A team of PPG staff from Japan and the U.S. has been supporting Honda during the development phase and the step into production that will see the revolutionary vehicle make its transition from concept to the road.

PPG Colorful Communities brightens hospital in Alessandria, Italy

Beginning in 2015, PPG Industries is investing an additional $10 million over 10 years to enhance, protect and beautify the neighborhoods we call home. Colorful Communities projects represent an opportunity to transform a community space or building to make it brighter and more colorful by leveraging a financial investment, PPG products and the energy and enthusiasm of our employee volunteers.

Alessandria, Italy is one of our Colorful Communities! PPG is partnering with Fondazione Uspidalet, a local community organization, to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the city’s Children’s Hospital with a special renovation. The gray iron gate that surrounds the hospital was re-painted in vivid colors by PPG employee volunteers, providing a more welcoming and positive environment for visitors. Volunteers also brightened the area surrounding the hospital by cleaning and planting the garden area where patients often rest and play.
