has published a new data sheet that categorizes PPG architectural
powder coatings according to American Architectural Manufacturers Association
performance standards. The data sheet details formulations and suggested
applications for four PPG powder coatings–Envirocron Durable, Envirocron Ultradurable, Coraflon and Duranar
coatings– and classifies them
according to AAMA 2603, 2604 or 2605 performance specifications.

Envirocron Durable powder coatings are
formulated to meet the specifications of AAMA 2603, which is the least rigorous
of these standards and typically associated with coatings for low-rise and
residential buildings.

Envirocron Ultradurable powder coatings are
designed to meet AAMA 2604 specifications and are favored for high-traffic
environments in buildings such as schools, hospitals and retail stores.

High-end products such as Duranar and Coraflon powder coatings are most often specified
for curtain walls, storefronts and other highly visible monumental applications
because they meet AAMA 2605 specifications, which include the most demanding
criteria for durability and long-term colourfastness.

The data sheet also features a table that enables
architects, specifiers and building product manufacturers to compare PPG
architectural powder coatings by warranty, performance testing standards, gloss
levels and other criteria.

Many architects, specifiers and building product
manufacturers favor powder coatings for their hardness, durability and
environmental attributes. Because powder coatings contain no solvents, they
emit virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during manufacture or
application. 

Founded in 1883, PPG is a leading global industrial
coatings supplier. The company has made powder coatings for industrial,
automotive and architectural applications for more than 30 years and offers
powder coatings in batches as small as 50 pounds and in more than 100,000
custom colors from the industry’s most extensive color database.
