PPG Industries has been named a finalist in the product innovation category of the 2002 PACE Awards competition for Framecoat electrodeposition coatings for automotive and light-truck chassis components.

"This is a testament to our leadership in developing new coating products and solutions for the transportation industry," said Michael Ludlow, PPG vice president of industrial coatings.

J. Rich Alexander, general manager of PPG's general industrial coatings business, said, "Automotive chassis components are traditionally designed for crash protection, rather than for accommodating a coating system. PPG found a way to design a coating system around these parts to provide the highest level of corrosion protection in its class."

Joe Keine, PPG director of transportation coatings, said, "Traditionally, the chassis components of cars and light trucks were coated with hot wax, providing corrosion protection for one to three years. Framecoat coatings from PPG have the ability to provide superior corrosion resistance in comparison to products being used on frames today as measured by commonly used industry tests."

The Automotive News PACE Awards program, established in 1994 by Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and Automotive News, recognizes automotive industry supplier process and product innovation and management excellence.

PPG received a 2001 PACE award for Audioguard sound- and vibration-dampening coatings. In addition, PPG was finalist for Bonazinc weldable primer and Enviro-Prime lead-free electrodeposition coatings. In the 2000 competition, PPG won a PACE Award for the Enviracryl powder clear coat used on BMW autos built in Germany, and also was a finalist for its two-bath Power-Prime electrocoat process.
