Travel to any major city around the world and chances are good that you’ll find a landmark protected by PPG DURANAR™ coatings. From the Empire State Building in New York City to the Pyramid at the Louvre in Paris, PPG Duranar has been the leading choice to protect and enhance architectural metal for over 50 years.
Once reserved for commercial and industrial buildings, the use of architectural aluminum now represents one of the fastest growing trends in new home construction and remodeling.
One of the factors that drives PPG's status as a global player in paint and color is our annual color forecast that is unrivaled in scope in the coatings industry. Each year, global stylists from around the world gather for an intensive 3-4 day workshop to explore industry research, world events and cultural influences that shape color to identify what they see as emerging trends.
As a global player in paint, PPG's mission of beautifying the world through color has been bolstered by the creation of PPG color workshops, all located near major electronic design studios and manufacturing hubs across the world.
Color is so much more than meets the eye. Color plays an important role in our world, influencing our thinking, behavior and reactions.
