PPG publishes new electrocoat brochure

Content focuses on products, services and training

PITTSBURGH, June 11, 2014 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business has published a new brochure detailing its electrocoat (e-coat) products, services and training.

The six-page booklet begins with an overview of e-coat technology, including the differences between cathodic and anodic e-coat, and the characteristics that make e-coat an efficient, economical and adaptable coating system. Two illustrations show a typical e-coat bath blend and a sample e-coat production line with a description of the coating process.

Related highlights include:

  • A chart devoted to identifying the best e-coat technologies for applications such as auto parts and accessories, heavy-duty equipment, appliances, consumer electronics, fasteners, aerospace and military equipment, and decorative and hardware finishes;
  • The “PPG Electrocoat Advantage,” which details PPG’s decades-long history with e-coat and technology-related benefits such as finish quality, product and process efficiencies, speed and productivity, and environmental friendliness;
  • A comparison between e-coat and liquid and powder coating technologies; and
  • A comprehensive chart-based review of PPG’s leading e-coat lines: the POWERCRON®, ELECTROCOLOR®, ELECTROTOUGH™, ELECTROPOLYSEAL®, AEROCRON™ and ENVIRO-PRIME® brands.

The brochure also covers PPG’s training and support options such as the SECURE LAUNCH EXCELLENCE™ program for fast-tracking the development of commercial coatings and the KNOWLEDGE COLLEGE® training program, which encompasses customer-focused education seminars held at PPG research and development facilities.
