PPG wins R&D 100 Awards
for two green innovations
PPG has earned two 2008 R&D 100 Awards for its Green Logic paint detackifier and Zircobond pretreatment technology. The awards, bestowed annually by R&D Magazine, recognize the 100 most technologically significant innovations each year.
Green Logic paint detackifier is used by North American, European and Japanese automakers to denature and remove over-sprayed paint from the water wash system in automotive paint spray booths. The patented formula, which incorporates chitosan derived from crab, lobster and shrimp shells, provides an environmentally responsible alternative to detackifiers derived from non-renewable, petroleum-based raw materials or chemistries containing residual-free formaldehyde. Green Logic detackifier helps auto­makers realize performance gains in paint detackification and overall spray booth operations, while offering greater ease of operation and savings from reduced maintenance, chemical and wastewater treatment, and waste disposal costs.
Zircobond pretreatment offers environmental and cost advantages over traditional zinc-phosphate pretreatments without sacrificing product performance. Compared with traditional products, Zircobond pretreatment reduces energy consumption, reduces overall water consumption, decreases sludge byproduct from the pretreatment process and is formulated without zinc, nickel or manganese, thereby reducing wastewater treatment costs.
