PPG Commercial Coatings Expands Offering of ECK Products

Published March 7, 2014
PPG Industries has formed an agreement between the commercial coatings group of its automotive refinish business and Van Nay, LLC, to expand the line of ECK corrosion-prevention products that PPG distributes. PPG now offers the full line of ECK products, adding quart and aerosol versions to the squeeze tubes it already offered.
`“We are pleased to add the quart and aerosol products to our already successful ECK squeeze tubes,” said J. J. Wirth, PPG commercial brand manager, fleet segments, U.S. and Canada. “ECK is a very effective safeguard against corrosion. By providing a full line of ECK products to PPG customers, I believe we will enhance their success with additional options to prevent corrosion.”
According to PPG, ECK (Electrolysis Corrosion Kontrol) products, developed by Van Nay, use a patented compound that provides a cost-effective way to avoid expensive repairs caused by dissimilar metal corrosion. Aluminum products assembled with stainless-steel fasteners are naturally corrosive. Applying the zinc-rich ECK coating prevents the electrolytic reaction. By forming a long-lasting, moisture-resistant barrier between dissimilar metals, ECK coating outperforms traditional methods of corrosion prevention such as the use of silicone-based products and plastic insulating tape applications. ECK products can also be used to prevent bolts and fasteners from galling and seizing. ECK products are ideal for heavy-duty truck bodies, military vehicles, trailers, agricultural and construction equipment and a variety of other metallic applications.

“Our working relationship with PPG Commercial Coatings has been outstanding,” said Richard Nay Sr., Van Nay president. “We look forward to our combined resources bringing a value-added solution to corrosion prevention.”
