PPG Industries industrial coatings business  announced that United States Aluminum of Waxahachie, Texas, has been accredited to  participate in the PPG Certified Applicator Program (PPG/CAP).

As the newest member of PPG/CAP, United States Aluminum joins an elite group of commercial  coating applicators certified by PPG to apply high-performance fluoropolymer coatings to  aluminum architectural components. 

PPG/CAP applicators undergo a rigorous auditing process that encompasses all aspects of the  coating process, from cleaning and pre-treating of the metal substrate to the actual application  of the coating. The audit also specifies paint application parameters and cure schedules, and  how finished products should be handled, packed and shipped. Continuous training and  education are also components of the program.

The PPG Certified Applicator Program enhances the ability of coatings applicators to meet  building industry demands for value-added products and solutions. PPG/CAP offers architects, general contractors, glazing contractors and other customers the highest levels of quality,  reliability and performance.

Working with a PPG-certified applicator ensures the enhanced color harmony of coated  aluminum architecural components on a building. PPG/CAP establishes protocols to help  minimize color variance across coated aluminum building components, including:

• A digital global database of colors that are stored numerically;

• Mandated use of common software and hardware to measure color reproduction and


• A uniform systems-oriented approach to matching colors and making paint;

• PPG’s unparalleled color and coatings knowledge, experience and resources, especially

regarding metallic color production.

PPG-certified applicators provide regional sourcing of aluminum-coated components, welltrained  and knowledgeable people, fast-track service to meet tight construction deadlines and  state-of-the-art technology through well-managed certified application centers.
