PPG PMC Business earns SSPC Military Award

Press Release
Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Recognized for coatings performance on restoration of historic battleship.


PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) protective and marine coatings (PMC) business received The Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC) 2013 Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence during the SSPC 2013 trade show at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
 

The award is given annually by SSPC to recognize exceptional coatings work performed on U.S. military ships, structures or facilities. PPG earned recognition for the performance of PSX(R) ONE coating, a one-component acrylic-siloxane coating, applied to the exterior of the historic USS Iowa battleship.


PSX ONE coating provides high color and gloss retention in a durable, low-VOC (volatile organic compound), non-isocyanate formulation. It is engineered for inland marine, petrochemical, water, wastewater and other applications, and it can be applied by brush, roller or spraying. The coating offers excellent abrasion resistance, wide cure temperature flexibility and unique surface tension to minimize rust and dirt-streaking.


The USS Iowa, which was originally commissioned in 1943 and served in the Atlantic and Pacific fleets during World War II, opened July 7, 2012, as an interactive naval museum at the Port of Los Angeles. Nearly 900 gallons of PSX ONE coating, in standard naval Haze Gray as well as black, red, white and blue, were applied to the exterior surfaces of the 887-foot-long battleship.
