Long-lasting Coatings for Wood, Vinyl & Composite Materials
With a wood coatings heritage that spans more than a century, PPG is a global leader in high-performance coatings for every type of wood finish process, including toners, primers, stains, fillers, sealers, glazes and topcoats. These products preserve the factory-finish appearance of a wide variety of wood and interior building products in millions of homes and buildings around the world.
Our leading liquid coatings for wood include 100 percent and reduced solids UV-curable coatings, waterborne and solvent-borne coatings, and spray-applied and vacuum-applied coatings.
These advanced technologies allow for faster line speeds, shorter cure times with lower volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions than traditional oven-cure methods, all with exceptional mar and scratch resistance for long-lasting beauty for wood, vinyl and composite materials.
Backed by a state-of-the-art wood coatings R&D lab, PPG brings technology-leading color styling, best-in-class formulations and technical expertise which meet the demands of manufacturers and their end users.

We provide all the steps for an outstanding finish: toners, primers, stains, fillers, sealers, glazes and topcoats. Water-based and solvent-based coatings, spray or vacuum applied, PPG supports the wood and resilient flooring segment, as well as the architectural moldings industry.
With proprietary resins designed specifically for joinery, our coatings are compatible with a variety of end uses including windows, patio and entry doors, siding, exterior trim and decking. Our products meet FGIA/AAMA 613/614 and 623/624/625 specifications requirements.

PPG POLYCRON® Extrusion Coatings
Spray applied, high-solids polyester resin technology that meets FGIA/AAMA 2603 performance specification.
RAYCRON® Radiation Curing
Designed to meet the requirements of the flooring, wall panels, wood furniture and consumer electronics industries, Raycron ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) curable coatings require much less energy than conventional coatings using heat and cure into seconds only. They can be made from 100 percent solids, but also with a mix of waterborne and solventborne formulations.
PPG ENVIRON® Coatings
Delivering excellent color uniformity and endurance via a variety of application methods, Environ waterborne stains bring out the natural beauty and contrast in any wood substrate. These products are the ideal choice for millwork, flooring, architectural and cabinetry components. These products improve the bond between the substrate and the rest of the coating stack, allowing for good build, profile sanding and a much smoother finish.
