PPG to highlight ENVIROCRON high transfer efficiency (HTE) coatings at Powder Coating 2017 conference

Two PPG speakers, PPG plant tour also slated

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 28, 2017 – PPG (NYSE: PPG) will showcase advanced ENVIROCRON® high transfer efficiency (HTE) powder coatings, and PPG representatives will teach a seminar, host a plant tour and present a paper, during the Powder Coating 2017 Technical Conference at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, March 27-31.

Envirocron HTE coatings are TGIC-free and bisphenol A-free (BPA-free) powder coatings engineered to protect and beautify geometrically complex surfaces. Formulated with a proprietary cross-linking polymer, Envirocron HTE powder coatings have faster build-rates than traditional polyester coatings when applied to metal racks and components with decorative patterns, recessed cavities, tubular shapes and other intricate, difficult-to-coat surfaces. With first-pass transfer-efficiency rates of 85 percent or better, Envirocron HTE coatings are ideal for spray-to-waste applicators seeking to reduce product loss.

Susan Miller, PPG technical manager, industrial coatings, will present a technical paper titled “Durable and Ultradurable Coatings for Wire Goods and Complex Metal Parts,” at about 11 a.m. Central Time on March 30. The session will demonstrate how the technology behind Envirocron HTE coatings represents a major technical advance—compared to traditional polyester coatings—for finishing metal racks and parts with decorative patterns, recessed cavities and other intricate, difficult-to-coat surfaces.

Jerry Burchett, PPG national sales manager, casket division, will teach a two-day seminar titled “Powder Coating 101: Basic Essentials with Lab Shop,” March 27-28, starting with classroom instruction and concluding with a hands-on training session at PPG’s Brazil, Indiana, coatings plant. Course content will be based on “Powder Coating: The Complete Finisher’s Handbook,” published by the Powder Coating Institute (PCI).

PPG also will highlight additional products from the Envirocron family of powder coatings, such as Envirocron XMR (extreme mar resistance) coatings, during the event, as well as ENVIRACRYL® acrylic-based powder coatings. Envirocron XMR coatings feature a proprietary PPG formulation that gives the surface of powder coatings ceramic-like properties, enabling them to achieve hardness and mar resistance comparable to porcelain enamel coatings. Enviracryl coatings provide high-gloss color and clear-coat protection for class A-type industrial finishes using the same technology as Enviracryl coatings for automotive clear coats, wheels and transportation applications.
