The four-page booklet details PPG’s environmentally-friendly powder coatings, along with liquid coatings such as ultraviolet (UV)-cure, polyurethane, waterborne, soft-touch and non-conductive vacuum metallizing (NCVM) products. ELECTROTOUGH epoxy electrocoats (e-coats) and ELECTROCOLOR acrylic e-coats also are highlighted.
The brochure also describes PPG’s integrated line of pretreatment products, which fight corrosion and promote adhesion of coatings on substrates such as stainless steel, aluminum and magnesium.
Readers will learn about PPG’s extensive customer support capabilities, including strategically located global design centers, the annual PPG Styling Directions tool kit, and the PPG MOSAIC color library, an open-source collection of three-dimensional colors that enables product designers to initiate their own color development work.
There also is information about PPG’s proprietary SECURE LAUNCH EXCELLENCE process. This strict, proven and highly regimented methodology enables PPG experts to work with OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and ODMs (original design manufacturers) to fast-track the development of commercial coatings for their products and transition them seamlessly into their companies’ manufacturing processes.
Programs such as KNOWLEDGE COLLEGE training are featured together with PPG technical support and consulting capabilities. These services help OEMs set up and operate coating lines, provide on-site training, and manage issues related to cost-control; environmental, health and safety compliance; system design and maintenance; and basic troubleshooting.
PPG Industries’ industrial coatings business has published a brochure covering its full line of coating, pretreatment and customer support solutions for designers and manufacturers of consumer electronics.
