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.

The products are helping the U.S. Navy and other military customers protect and extend the life of weapons, vehicles, ships and other equipment and structures. Their performance in all conditions also helps to contribute to the safety and success of military personnel at home and abroad.

U.S. DOD tests X-BOND pretreatment for military

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and PPG are testing the effectiveness of zirconium-based X-BOND® pretreatment to prevent corrosion on military vehicles and systems.

PPG’s corporate science and technology group at the Coatings Innovation Center (CIC) in Allison Park, Pennsylvania, received DOD funding to work with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to demonstrate X-Bond pretreatment’s effectiveness as a replacement for zinc phosphate- and hexavalent chromium-based pretreatments.

X-Bond pretreatment is advantageous as it contains no toxic heavy metals, saves energy by working at room temperature, and its application and disposal processes produce significantly less waste, consume less water, and require fewer steps, which reduces equipment and labor costs. It is also compatible with coatings and substrates currently used by the DOD.

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. Customers will be offered multiple three-stage color options, including PPG’s cutting-edge ANDARO® tint dispersion technology that provides the ability to achieve deep, pure and more chromatic colors than is possible with traditional pigments. 

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.
