  • Description

    PPG ENVIROCRON® GRO ultradurable polyester powder coatings are specifically engineered to stand up to the corrosive conditions often found in hydroponic and vertical growing facilities. These facilities rely on precise and continuous amounts of both ultraviolet exposure and nutrient-rich water to accelerate plant growth, which can make it difficult to protect the racking, shelving and housing of materials

  • Chemistry

    Polyester TGIC

  • Benefits

    • Great humidity, corrosion and abrasion resistance
    • Optional PPG SILVERSAN™ antimicrobial*-protection
    • High reflectivity >95% (Grow White HR/SD only)
    • Available in a wide range of colors an glosses
    • Excellent UV resistance

     * Antimicrobial is limited to the treated surface to provide mold and mildew resistance on the paint film and to inhibit the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria that may affect the surface of the coating. The use of these products does not protect users of any such treated article or others against food-borne or disease causing bacteria, viruses, germs or other disease-causing organisms.

  • Suggested End Uses

    • Shelving and racking
    • Hydroponic and other grow equipment
    • Light fixtures
