Paints and coatings manufacturer PPG recently announced a major expansion of its PPG FLOORING concrete coatings offering. The expanded range comprises integrated systems of primers, base coats, and topcoats for environments requiring electrostatic protection.
The range also applies to equipment mechanical rooms and for applications where a combination of high-performance and ultra-fast return to service is essential.
“From everyday commercial and industrial concrete floors to highly specialized applications such as data centers, food processing facilities and amusement parks, PPG now provides a coating solution that can deliver optimum protection,” said Michael Masorli, director of the U.S. and Canadian resinous flooring division of PPG’s protective and marine coatings business.
“With the expanded PPG Flooring offering, contractors and facility managers can be confident they are getting professionally engineered solutions and technical support to suit their unique operating environment,” Masorli added.
All of the PPG Flooring coating systems are durable, easy to install, and clean, according to the manufacturer. The new systems are also optimized for especially challenging applications, such as:
- Dissipative and conductive flooring: For environments where electrostatic discharge is a hazard — such as electronics manufacturing facilities, data centers, or operating rooms — PPG offers a three-coat electrostatic protection system. This system comprises an epoxy primer, an electrostatic dissipative grounding plane, and a choice of topcoats for additional chemical and wear protection.
- Mechanical equipment room (MER) flooring: The PPG MER system includes an epoxy primer, waterproofing membrane, and two-component topcoat to provide the combined resistance to moisture, temperature, chemicals, and vibration that is needed in these environments.
- Ultra-fast cure flooring: For restaurants, amusement parks, and other environments where overnight service is essential, PPG’s methyl methacrylate system of a primer, binder resin, and sealer quickly provides strong bonding with excellent water and chemical resistance.
These options expand upon PPG’s existing flooring coatings systems of general purpose, wear resistant, chemical resistant, and urethane cement. All deliver specific benefits such as resistance to impact, abrasion, and certain chemicals.
“A key PPG goal is to provide innovative solutions to address our customers’ greatest needs,” Masorli concluded. “With these important additions to our PPG Flooring line, combined with the support that PPG’s technical sales team can offer through our stores and dealers, we’re confident that we can meet the performance needs of almost any customer with quick, easy specification.”
