Published: January 22, 2019

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 21, 2019 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that it will showcase its entire range of industry-leading wood coatings at The International Surface Event (TISE) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Jan. 22-25.

PPG will feature products that cover every step of the wood finishing process, including basecoats, primers, fillers, stains, sealers and topcoats.

"PPG has been making wood coatings for more than a century, and our broad product range is enhanced by our technical expertise," Justin Epler, PPG coil and building products director, industrial coatings. "Visitors to the PPG booth will discover how we translate that knowledge and experience into wood coating products and technologies that are trusted by leading manufacturers in the flooring, cabinetry, molding, millwork and door industries."

PPG will have a color stylist on-site to discuss emerging color trends, as well as a team of experts highlighting the capabilities of PPG's dedicated wood coating research and development lab in Springdale, Pennsylvania. This state-of-the art facility enables PPG customers to stay on the leading edge of color and design trends in the wood coatings industry while receiving a continuous stream of productivity solutions, eco-forward technologies and coatings innovations across multiple industry segments.

Products on display at the PPG booth will include:

  • PPG RAYCRON® ultraviolet (UV)-curable coatings, which are water- and solvent-free based on 100 percent solids formulations. These coatings require less energy for curing compared to coatings finished in hot air ovens and produce virtually no air or water pollution.
  • PPG CLARITAGE® and PPG ENVIRON® stains, which are two long-standing PPG product families that have a history of proven performance over millwork, flooring, architectural and cabinetry components.

PPG manufactures wood coatings using a full range of formulation technologies to meet the demands of end users and their customers. These products include 100 percent and reduced solids UV-curable coatings, waterborne and solvent-borne coatings, and spray and vacuum-applied coatings.

TISE comprises three world-class trade shows - SURFACES, StonExpo/Marmomac and TileExpo – making it the largest North American event covering the floor covering, stone and tile industries. Each January, the show attracts buyers, specifiers, media and other influencers from more than 100 countries to Las Vegas.
