Innovative in Technology + Color

To meet consumer demand, PPG has engineered PPG CORAFLON® PLATINUM powder that opens up new color and design options for fabricators, builders and architects looking to create new spaces or provide high-quality refurbishments.

This innovative powder coating is a unique combination of performance and beauty that offers a wide range of colors, effects and extended glosses ranges from 5-85, compared to 25-70 for standard FEVE products, and delivers outstanding corrosion performance on aluminum in a single coat.

A breakthrough in powder technology, the coating meets FGIA/AAMA 2605-compliance standards, is backed by more than nine years of test data and has a transfer efficiency rate that is 20% higher than standard FEVE powders.

In addition to application ease that uses less overall powder and produces less waste, the coating is also specifically formulated without the following substances: Triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC), Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), Fluorosurfactants, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and substances of concern.
