PPG Industries Opens PPG PAINTS™ Stores in Pittsburgh

PPG Industries announced the grand opening of PPG PAINTS™ stores in its global headquarters community of Pittsburgh. PPG is renovating the 16 stores, which were acquired from two independent paint retailers in 2014, to dramatically enhance the customer experience with expanded store footprints, customer-friendly service counters, color selection tools and colorful, well-lit interiors. Interior walls are branded with PPG’s signature blue and large colorful stripes that reflect the PPG Paints logo, which also appears on a fleet of 24 delivery vehicles that serve the Pittsburgh area. In-store representatives are available to provide painting professionals and do-it-yourself consumers with expert project and product guidance and personalized service. In addition to more than 30 lines of paint and stain products, the stores provide a selection of supplies and equipment such as brushes, paint applicators, spray equipment, caulk and patching materials. Each store includes a PPG Color Work Station, which offers tools to help customers choose the right colors for home painting projects. The work station’s 42-inch digital touchscreen enables users to virtually paint room images and share “painted” images via email with friends and family. The display showcases a palette of more than 2,000 available colors through large, designer-sized take-home color strips, coordinated palettes and magazine-like color cards to make color selection easier and more inspiring. In addition, the stores offer color consultation services with PPG designers. The introduction of the new PPG Paints store brand in the Pittsburgh market is part of a national rollout of PPG Paints stores. PPG’s 635 company-owned stores across the U.S. will now operate under the PPG Paints brand name. PPG Paints stores is the second-largest paint store network in the U.S.

PPG Industries Inc. Introduces SPECTRACRON SEP Wet-On-Wet Epoxy Primer

PPG Industries Inc. has announced that its industrial coatings business has introduced SPECTRACRON SEP primer, a two-component, or 2K, wet-on-wet epoxy primer that is designed to help original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, increase production throughput without sacrificing corrosion resistance. By reducing flash times to two minutes, Spectracron SEP primer is enabling OEMs to increase production rates without sacrificing quality while achieving cost savings in other areas of their operation. Spectracron SEP primer can be used on production lines with 5-, 10- and 30-minute flash times, enabling OEMs to simplify stocking and reduce inventory. The product also provides higher-gloss finishes with no solvent-pop or soak-in issues, as well as improved corrosion resistance, cycle times, masking performance and handling. Operational benefits include low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, easier application, reduced fluid flows and flush solvents, and lower paint costs. Spectracron SEP primer is engineered for use in all areas of the heavy-duty equipment market and is well-suited for transportation and general finishing as well as propane, water and storage tanks. It is available in green and buff colors, and it may be formulated in other colors for specific applications or customers.
