PPG Selected As Finalist For 2007 PACE Award

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has been named a finalist for the 2007 Automotive News PACE Award. The 13th annual PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) Award is presented by Microsoft, SAP, Transportation Research Center Inc. (TRC Inc.) and Automotive News.

A five-time winner of the PACE Award, PPG is a finalist for its Air Dry Waterborne Adhesion Promoter, which is being commercialized in North America on plastic fascias. This product is the first of its kind to combine the benefits of zero hazardous air pollutants, ultra-low volatile organic compounds and superior physical properties in an adhesion promoter that does not require baking prior to topcoat application.

Formulated to comply with increasingly stringent environmental regulations, the Air Dry Waterborne Adhesion Promoter by PPG addresses many challenges facing automotive manufacturers. In addition to exceeding the requirements of upcoming Maximum Achievable Control Technology legislation, the product helps improve process efficiency by eliminating the need for promoter baking, reducing overall topcoat usage and reducing waste and paint sludge. Moreover, it provides more robust fuel resistance of topcoated parts, as well as improved high-pressure car wash adhesion.
