PPG Automotive Coatings is focused on providing innovative solutions to automotive manufacturers worldwide. Innovative solutions are clearly the primary emphasis at PPG. Products like PPG's Enviro-Prime® 2000 Lead Free Electrocoat contribute to increased vehicle life spans without environmental concerns. Topcoat products like EnviroBase® waterborne base-coat and Enviracryl® Powder Clear-coat give "green products" a tough new image at a highly-competitive cost with clearly superior performance advantages.
Ceramiclear® clearcoat has set a new standard for combined resistance to scratches, mars, and acid etch. This clear-coat is the first to use nano-particle technology. The proof is the many awards these products have received from the marketplace, including the prestigious Automotive News PACE award, the R&D 100 award and the Market Engineering and Design award to name just a very few.
PPG has also commercialized Durabed® Sprayable Bedliner, the world's first OEM-applied, high-performance, spray-on truck bedliner. PPG has always been on the forefront of automotive coating innovation since our beginnings in 1924. Whether the issue is corrosion protection, environmental application concerns or vehicle finish performance improvements, PPG Automotive Coatings has been the responsible leader.
Today's automotive manufacturer and consumer are increasingly more sophisticated about the issue of fit and finish in their vehicles. PPG's ability to meet those ever-increasing requirements is a hallmark of our employees worldwide.
