Sharon Bird, PPG marketing communications manager, industrial coatings, said the new paper cards are designed to satisfy requests from architects and designers for large color samples that more closely approximate actual metal panel sizes.
“We are always seeking new ways to make it easier for building professionals and their customers to visualize how coatings will look on a finished project,” Bird explained. “The new 10-by-10-inch color samples provide a cost-effective way to do so.”
PPG currently offers 10 of the most popular Duranar coatings colors in the 10-by-10-inch paper format.
