PPG ENVIROCRON® EXTREME PROTECTION EDGE Powder Provides breakthrough innovation for the industry.

Launched in 2019, PPG ENVIROCRON® Extreme Protection Edge powder coating represents a major industry advancement in one-coat edge coverage.

Staying uniform over sharp edges

Sharp edge coverage has been a considerable and enduring challenge for the coatings industry. Until recently, existing coatings all faced the same issue of not being able to maintain a uniform layer of protection on a sharp edge, particularly cut edges on steel, throughout the curing process. This lack of uniformity on sharp edges can compromise a coating’s performance and lead to deterioration. Rust and corrosion along these exposed edges prove to be a significant issue and a crucial reason for the need for innovation.

By producing a coating that stays uniform over sharp edges, we have also provided a way to soften or dull those edges without adding any extra cost to manufacturers – essentially helping to make the coated metal product less sharp and safer for workers to handle, unload, assemble and package.
