The new Terminal B concourse at the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport in California is the first monumental architectural project constructed with Duranar powder coatings by PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business. Duranar powder coatings are formulated by PPG to provide the same long-term durability as Duranar liquid coatings, but in an environmentally advanced, ultra-low-VOC powder. They are based on the same polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) technology as liquid Duranar coatings. Duranar Regal White powder coatings were applied to a series of curved, perforated metal panels that arc over the main Terminal B structure. The coating was specified by Fentress Architects, Denver, CO. Overly Manufacturing, Greensburg, PA, was the metal panel manufacturer and Spectrum Metal Finishing, Youngstown, OH, was the PPG Certified Applicator. Terminal B covers more than 160,000 square feet and is designed to accommodate up to 8.5 million passengers a year. The project earned LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in September 2010.
