Leadership in Architectural Metal Protection

Since 1967 with the launch of groundbreaking PPG DURANAR coatings, PPG has continued to pioneer innovations that redefine the protection, design and performance of architectural metal.

Our portfolio of liquid and powder technologies are engineered for both interior and exterior applications and are available in a variety of PVDF, FEVE, acrylic, polyester and SMP formulations.

Our metal coatings are backed by PPG’s incomparable technical support, comprehensive color capabilities and a commitment to developing next-generation coatings that are not only more sustainable, but more durable and beautiful.

Extrusion Coatings

For more than 55 years, PPG’s spray-applied aluminum extrusion coatings have consistently set the industry benchmark for durability.  This high-performance protection, coupled with our extensive library of customizable colors, gloss levels, textures and special effects, make PPG extrusion coatings among the most specified in the world.

Coil Coatings

PPG is a global provider of coil coatings for building and architectural applications. Chemically inert, our pre-painted metal solutions offer flexibility, hardness and robust protection against UV rays, chemicals, abrasions and humidity.

Field-Applied & Touch-Ups

PPG provides air-dry products for touch-up, repair, and restoration of factory-applied coil and extrusion painted metal surfaces. Our one- and two-component air dry fluoropolymer systems are perfect for minor repairs or full-scale restoration. They can be applied using various methods, including brush, roller or spray. These field-applied coatings meet FGIA/AAMA 2605 performance standards and come in a range of glosses, solid colors, mica and metallic shades.
