PPG Industries: Powder Coating Technology

PPG Industries recently announced a breakthrough powder coating technology that has the potential to greatly improve mar and scratch resistance in a broad range of industrial applications. Several formulations of ENVIROCRON XMR powder coatings from PPG have approached the mar performance usually associated with porcelain enamels, as measured by commonly used industry tests. "This represents a huge leap forward in powder coating technology," said Rob Edwards, PPG's director of global powder operations. "This new technology has the potential to have a huge impact in any industrial application where the scratch resistance of the coating is beneficial." The coating technology has undergone extensive testing at PPG's Coatings Research and Development Center in Allison Park, Pa. ENVIROCRON XMR coatings are available in a broad range of powder coating chemistries, including pigmented and clear formulations.
