PPG Industries’ fluoropolymer coatings, which were introduced more than four decades ago for use in the construction market, are renowned for their durability, outstanding resistance to chalking and fading and colorfastness unmatched in the industry. These coatings also minimize maintenance and repainting costs, and they are well-suited for use on doors, window frames, curtain walls, decorative plates of landmark buildings and in other architectural applications.
Duranar coatings of PPG are formulated with three components. The first one is a proprietary resin, a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) fluoropolymer resin and the second component is proprietary PPG pigments and the third is solvents.
