PPG Debuts New Coatings for Steel, Metal Applications
PPG has introduced PSX 800 and PSX 805 coatings for
steel and metal surfaces, two next-generation products formulated
with greater flexibility and hiding performance than competing
According to PPG, the two new products feature improved
flexibility, which enables them to withstand the cracking under
stress commonly associated with difficult steel, tank exterior
and building exterior applications. PSX 805 coating adds a
durable satin-sheen finish that masks imperfections on metal
surfaces. Designed for use in indoor spaces with strict chemical
emissions limits, PSX 805 has also been independently tested by
UL and meets the criteria for GREENGUARD Gold Certification,
contributing to the creation of healthier interiors.
Diane Kappas, PPG vice president, protective and marine coatings
(PMC), Americas, said PSX 800 and PSX 805 coatings add value by
diminishing the need for traditional three-coat finish systems.
"Because of their flexibility, durability and good looks, these
products can provide single-coat protection over zinc-rich
primers, replacing two-layer intermediate epoxy and polyurethane
topcoat systems. That can help contractors reduce application
costs, minimize waste and lower environmental emissions on the
job site as well."
PSX 800 and PSX 805 coatings offer all the benefits of
traditional polysiloxane coatings, including low volatile organic
compound (VOC) emissions, unlimited topcoat windows, superior
color and gloss retention and exceptional abrasion, corrosion and
chemical resistance, the manufacturer said. Typical applications
are metal buildings and siding, structural steel, exterior
lighting fixtures, signage, storage tanks, metal railings,
bridges and finished metal parts.
