Introducing PPG OptiGuard™A comprehensive series of insulative and/or non-stick coatings

The PPG OptiGuard product range is specifically designed to help reduce the time and cost associated with cleaning paint line equipment. PPG OptiGuard is an ideal solution for a range of applications, offering either a fluoropolymer or epoxy-based technology that have been proven to resist adhesion to and buildup of paint. But that’s just the start, follow along below to learn more about PPG OptiGuard.

Cleaner. Faster. Safer.

Many OEMs are forced to pull carriers from production every 300 to 350 cycles* to remove buildup of e-coat, grease and other contaminants. Removing contaminants from uncoated racks and jigs often requires companies to rely on outside vendors for thermal cleaning or contract labor for time-intensive, on-site water blasting using extremely high – and potentially dangerous water pressures.

The insulative and/or non-stick properties of PPG OptiGuard (EG and XD) coatings resist material adhesion and buildup, enabling the extension of paint line cleaning intervals by up to 75%** and allowing significantly lower water pressure to be used when cleaning is required. This reduces water and energy consumption, hazardous waste, chemical use and the risk of employee injuries during cleaning.
