The partnership enables designers to use PPG’s architectural and metal coatings alongside exterior components in AUTODESK REVIT and other architectural design applications, adding efficiency and intelligence to a building’s design and maintenance.
The new PPG BIM materials include PPG DURANAR coatings.
Combining 70 percent PVDF resins with proprietary PPG resin and pigment technologies, PPG Duranar coatings are designed to retain their color and gloss through decades of environmental exposure.
PPG also offers more than 70 architectural coatings from the PPG PAINTS brand on the BIMsmith platform, including MANOR HALL paint, SPEEDHIDE paint and BREAK-THROUGH! paint.
“Architects have chosen PPG Duranar coatings and other PPG innovations for their architectural and metal coatings for decades,” said Scott Moffatt, PPG market manager, architectural coil and extrusion coatings. “With easy access to BIM data, they now can incorporate PPG coatings more efficiently and effectively into the design process.”
