PPG coatings are not only found across complex, technical industries but also on products we use every day in our homes. The same knowledge that we use to beautify a building, or to fight the corrosive effects on an ocean freighter, is embedded into every coating we produce for electrical equipment manufacturers.
From durable products that protect transformers, switchgear and enclosures, to the bright whites and colorful coatings that enhance the latest designs on light fixtures, PPG has been a trusted coatings supplier to the electrical industry for decades.
As one of the world's largest coatings companies, PPG boasts an exceptional range of product and customer service solutions, including the industry’s most comprehensive selection of UL1332 DTOV2-listed coatings.
Switchgear and Electrical Enclosures
With one of the largest selections of UL1332 DTOV2-recognized products, switchgear manufacturers and their suppliers have access to a complete PPG portfolio of pretreatment, powder, liquid and electrocoat technologies.
As an active contributor to the IEEE Transformer Enclosure Integrity Standards Subcommittee, PPG's in-depth knowledge of IEEE standards and testing criteria is reflected in our pretreatment and coating systems.
PPG's comprehensive portfolio delivers coating systems suitable for outdoor, interior and medical lighting systems, with a range of effects and textures to meet aesthetic and performance requirements.
PPG ENVIROCRON® EXTREME PROTECTION EDGE Powder
Envirocron Extreme Protection Edge powder delivers extreme corrosion protection on sharp, hard-to-coat edges in just one coat. With a higher first-pass transfer efficiency, reduced powder usage and 20+ micron edge coverage, this patent-pending breakthrough is ideal for laser, fiber, CO2 plasma cut and sharp edges, louvers, blades and mesh.
PPG ENVIROCRON® HIGH TRANSFER EFFICIENCY (HTE) Powder
With excellent adhesion and strength, Envirocron HTE powder is ideal for complex, difficult-to-coat surfaces. Available in durable and ultra-durable proprietary formulations, this innovation helps to increase output while reducing material usage, energy consumption and maintenance costs with first-pass transfer rates of up to 85 percent.
PPG POWERCRON® 160 Electrocoat
Originally developed to meet the unique needs of the pipe industry and specifically engineered for cast profiles, Powercron 160 anionic epoxy e-coat uses a proprietary chemistry that enables high film builds of greater than 6 mils / 150µm over multiple substrates and pretreatment chemistries.
PPG POWERCRON® 397 Electrocoat
Featuring exceptional corrosion protection properties, Powercron 397 is our newest anodic acrylic technology. This low VOC (0.4 – 1.2 lbs. per gal./ 181 – 544 gms per litre minus water/exempts) formulation is available in a variety of colors with reduced cure capabilities as low as 325°F (163°C) and is ideally suited for metal housings. Not currently available in Europe.
PPG VERSABOND™ Pretreatment
Versabond is a fast, kinetic-efficient zinc-phosphate pretreatment system that improves corrosion resistance on mixed-metal substrates while enabling manufacturers to realize the benefits of extended bath life, reduced sludge and lower processing temperatures.
