PPG introduces PPG DURASTAR ultra-durable industrial spray coating

One-coat system for aluminum extrusions meets AAMA 2604 specification

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 31, 2017 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) has introduced PPG DURASTAR® ultra-durable industrial spray coating, a one-coat application for aluminum extrusions that meets the exterior durability requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s AAMA 2604 specification (five-year South Florida exposure).
Composed of a proprietary PPG-developed polyester resin, PPG Durastar spray coating can be applied direct-to-metal (DTM) or over a primer. It provides excellent corrosion resistance, color fastness, and chalk-, scratch- and mar-resistance for high-end building products and components used in storefronts, schools, hospitals and other high-traffic areas.
Brian Knapp, PPG director, coil and building products, said the versatility and hardness of PPG Durastar spray coating give value-oriented window, door and building product manufacturers a cost-effective option for achieving AAMA 2604 weathering performance without the associated cost premium.
“Whether applied directly over metal or a primer for enhanced performance in seacoast environments, PPG Durastar spray coating provides exceptional substrate protection at a cost that is competitive with AAMA 2603-level coatings,” said Knapp.
To help manufacturers meet environmental mandates, PPG Durastar spray coating is lead-free and features low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and low hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). It is available in a wide range of solid colors in all gloss levels.
