PPG to showcase prefinish coatings for building materials at 2018 LBM Expo

Machine-applied coatings deliver significant advantages over coatings applied in field

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 5, 2018 – PPG (NYSE: PPG) today announced that it will exhibit its broad portfolio of factory-applied primers, finishes and stains at the 2018 Lumber and Building Materials (LBM) Expo, a Northeastern Retail Lumber Association (NRLA) event. The annual conference will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center, Feb. 14-16.
PPG will showcase machine-applied coatings that deliver significant advantages over coatings applied in the field, including the ability to coat every edge, angle and groove to ensure thorough performance for every coated piece. Products on display will include PPG MACHINECOAT® exterior finish coatings for wood substrates and PPG DURACOLOR® exterior finish coatings for fiber cement and composite substrates.
PPG Machinecoat and Machinecoat Plus exterior finishes offer excellent color retention and strong adhesion. They are available as solid colors or semi-transparent coatings.
PPG Duracolor coatings are specifically designed for machine applicators. The coatings are engineered to protect against harsh exterior exposure and ultraviolet degradation and are formulated to deliver excellent adhesion, color retention and film flexibility. 
For more than 90 years, PPG has been a pioneer in quality, innovation and performance for machine applicators who seek consistent protection and color integrity. The company’s market-proven systems include prefinished coatings engineered with advanced technology and backed by industry-leading research, development and technical teams.
The 2018 LBM Expo is dedicated solely to the independent lumber and building material dealers and associated businesses.
