PITTSBURGH – PPG Industries’ (NYSE: PPG) industrial coatings business will showcase new ENVIROCRON(R) HTE (high-transfer-efficiency) powder coating along with its entire line of architectural and industrial powder coatings at the 2015 Powder Coating Show in Louisville, Kentucky, May 6-7.

Introduced in February, Envirocron HTE powder coating is formulated with a proprietary crosslink polymer that provides faster application build-rates than traditional polyester coatings, as well as the ability to coat evenly on complex parts and surfaces, especially those with recessed cavities, uneven surfaces or decorative geometric designs.

Shelley Verdun, PPG powder product manager, said Envirocron HTE coating represents a technical breakthrough because it enables high transfer rates through product chemistry rather than application method, equipment selection or applicator skill.

“Working with Envirocron HTE coating, applicators can achieve first-pass transfer rates of up to 85 percent on refrigerator racks, wire baskets, shelving, shopping carts, patio furniture, aluminum extrusions and other difficult-to-coat goods,” she explained. “That can result in better film thickness control, lower costs and less product waste, particularly for spray-to-waste applicators.”
