PPG & Weaber Lumber Launch AQUALINK WB Coating

Published August 1, 2014
PPG Industries' industrial coatings business announced that Weaber Lumber Company's new line of Finish Coat interior trim products are protected by AQUALINK coatings, a revolutionary, engineered, baked-on coating developed by PPG to bring exterior durability and factory-controlled finishes to interior wood trim and molding.

Weaber Lumber's Finish Coat trim products protected by Aqualink coatings are specially engineered to deliver a consistent factory finish on primed and painted moldings and S4S (surfaced four sides) boards made from American poplar, an abundant hardwood often used for interior applications.

Brian Knapp, PPG coil and building products director, industrial coatings, said PPG worked closely with Weaber Lumber Company to select a coating that would give the Finish Coat line a distinct performance advantage over competing products. "Weaber and PPG chose Aqualink water-based coatings for this product development because they are extremely hard, chemical resistant and safe for the environment," he explained.

Matt Weaber, president and chief executive officer of Weaber Lumber Company, said Aqualink coatings enable his company to manufacture a one-of-a-kind product that saves his customers time and money. "Because of their hard-cure Aqualink coatings, our Finish Coat products offer builders, carpenters and other professionals an industry first: labor-saving, ready-to-install, factory-quality hardwood trim that is designed to keep its perfectly coated showroom finish for years to come."

Designed for building product applications, Aqualink single - and dual-component water-based coatings feature optimal pencil hardness and solid chemical resistance in an environmentally-friendly low-VOC (volatile organic compound) and NMP-free formulation. They are engineered to meet a variety of American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) standards.
