PPG Industries’ protective and marine coatings (PMC) business announced that it has terminated its licensee agreement with Comex Group in Mexico and that customers in that country can now order AMERCOAT brand products directly from PPG. Products sold and serviced by PPG in Mexico include:

  • AMERLOCK surface-tolerant epoxies protect steel and concrete structures such as offshore platforms, petroleum processing plants, storage facilities and marine structures in severe environments. Available in a wide range of colors and low-VOC (volatile organic compound) formulations, Amerlock epoxies are engineered to prevent film pinholing and solvent entrapment at the substrate/coating interface, a common site of coatings failure with conventional epoxies and lower-solids systems.
  • DIMETCOTE inorganic zinc primers are designed for protection of carbon steel against corrosion. They are available in water-based and low-VOC solvent formulations, and they are easy to apply after abrasive blast surface preparation of the steel substrate.
  • Patented PSX 700 polysiloxane topcoat is used around the world for applications in various protective and marine segments, featuring a large color range, low isocyanates and outstanding application properties.

These and other Amercoat products by PPG can be ordered in Mexico directly from the manufacturer.

Diane Kappas, PPG vice president, Americas, PMC, said PPG is thrilled with the opportunity to serve customers in Mexico directly. “We view Mexico as a tremendous growth market,” she said. “By working more closely with our customers, we believe we can enhance their competitive advantage, not just through the strength of our product offering but with advanced levels of technical and sales support.”
