The Company:
PPG Industries, Inc., headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, is a global, multi-billion dollar diversified manufacturer supplying paints, coatings, chemicals, optical products, specialty materials and glass. PPG is a world leader in protective and marine coatings, developing products that protect customers’ assets in some of the world’s most demanding conditions and environments. These include, among others, Offshore, Petrochemical, Marine new-build, Marine dry dock and Marine sea stock.

The Case:
PPG has extensive experience in both silyl acrylate antifoulings and silicone-based fouling release coatings, enabling them to provide a bespoke solution. Beyond this, PPG can also advise and support customers in a practical way to actually monitor and measure vessel performance. A world leader in protective and marine coatings, PPG is dedicated to developing, manufacturing and supplying coatings that anticipate the demanding challenges of the global marine and protective coatings industries. Among their many products is SIGMAGLIDE, a fouling release coating which prevents the build-up of barnacles, algae and other organisms on the hulls of vessels without the use of biocides. The NOVAGUARD coating is a one-coat system. This solvent-free phenolic epoxy coating improves work safety, and has wide chemical resistance to biofuels, crude oil and unleaded gasolines, providing maximum storage flexibility. Strategically located storage depots and color network centers support PPG‘s marine efforts, with over 120 stock points, 15 hub and distribution centers, and 34 manufacturing facilities spread across all continents.
