Vanessa Peterson joined PPG Industrial Coatings as a color stylist trainee in 2013, before working her way up to become our U.S. color design manager for consumer electronics in 2019 - alongside running a non-profit helping those experiencing homelessness.
Through the introduction of our ENVIROCRON™ Extreme Protection Edge powder coating technology, PPG has solved a long-standing issue of edge coverage.
Alongside choosing the correct coating, it is just as important to get the application process right. While PPG coatings are easy to apply, if done incorrectly, defects such as peeling and chipping, rapid wear, mud cracks, craters (fisheyes) can occur, resulting in a poor non-stick performance.
We chatted with Maria Lamorey, who joined the Industrial Coatings business in 2015 as our general finishes commercial manager, about how her relationships with customers have changed during the pandemic and why she is so excited about PPG's ENVIROCRON™ Extreme Protection Edge powder coating.
Curing is an important process to maximise the performance of fluoropolymer coatings by achieving adhesion, chemical resistance and necessary surface properties.
