PPG earns Metal of Honor supplier recognition from Metal Roofing magazine

Named by survey respondents among top 10 percent of suppliers for quality products, service

PITTSBURGH, May 4, 2017 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that it was named a “Metal of Honor” winner by Metal Roofing magazine, after readers selected the coatings company as one of the top industry suppliers of 2016. In an annual survey of the magazine’s 26,000 readers, respondents ranked PPG in the top 10 percent of companies that provide products and services within the metal roofing supply chain.

Brian Knapp, PPG director, coil and building products, said the recognition is especially gratifying because it is based on feedback directly from industry customers. “There are hundreds of companies involved in the metal building and roofing industries, so it is a privilege to be among the small number chosen as ‘the best’ by satisfied customers.”

PPG manufactures a full range of premium DURANAR® liquid and powder fluoropolymer coatings for metal roof applications. Products include Duranar ULTRA-COOL® and color-shifting Duranar VARI-COOL® coatings, which are available in more than 250 dark, medium and light colors to meet cool roof requirements established by the LEED®, ENERGY STAR® and Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC®) programs.

Last year, PPG introduced DURASTAR® ULTRA-Cool coatings as a value-focused alternative to Duranar ULTRA-Cool coatings. Combining PPG’s newest polyester coating technologies with pigment and primer systems developed for premium Duranar coatings, Durastar ULTRA-Cool coatings achieve high levels of weatherability, durability, and color and gloss retention. They also are available in a wide range of dark, medium and light colors registered or certified to industry-accepted cool roof standards.

The Metal of Honor program was created by editors of Metal Roofing magazine to give readers the opportunity to honor suppliers that consistently provide quality products and great service.
