DURASTAR ULTRA-COOL COIL COATINGS
Advanced silicone-modified polyesters,
IR-reflectivity enable better building products
 
PPG has introduced DURASTAR® ULTRA-COOL® coatings, which combine an advanced silicone-modified polyester (SMP) coatings formulation with infrared-reflective (IR-reflective) pigments to enhance the beauty and extend the service life of metal roofing, siding panels and other building components.
 
Durastar ULTRA-Cool coatings incorporate new polyester-based resin, crosslinking and tinting technologies to protect industrial, agricultural, storage and other types of metal buildings while providing exceptional chalk resistance, fade resistance and forming flexibility. The addition of ULTRA-Cool/IR-reflective pigments deflects solar heat, enabling buildings to stay cooler and use less energy for air-conditioning.
 

Brian Knapp,
PPG director, coil and building products, said Durastar ULTRA-Cool coatings are engineered to outperform traditional SMP coatings because they borrow technology from higher-end PPG coatings.
 
"Durastar ULTRA-Cool coatings unite our best polyester coating technologies with pigment and primer systems developed for premier PPG products such as CORAFLON® and DURANAR ® fluoropolymer coatings," he explained. "The result is a line of value-oriented coatings that achieve near-premium levels of weatherability, durability, and color and gloss retention."
 
Durastar ULTRA-Cool coatings are available in an array of light, medium and dark colors to meet cool roof requirements established by the LEED®, ENERGY STAR®, Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC®), Title 24 and ASHRAE® 90.1 programs and regulations.

PPG METAL COATINGS FEATURES
ONLINE COLOR SELECTOR TOOL
Larger swatches, reflectance data, 
cross-referenced color codes among new features

 
The tool features digital versions of all 90 colors in the PPG Architectural Liquid and Powder Coatings Color Guide and each of the 80 colors in the PPG Building Products Coil Coatings Color Guide. Visitors can access large swatches for all 170 colors through two modules - for extrusion coatings and coil coatings - and filter searches by color family or by brand name.
 
Hovering a cursor over a color swatch reveals the descriptive name of the DURANAR® liquid coating in the extrusion-coatings mode or the Duranar UL TRA-COOL® coating in the coil-coatings mode, along with its unique product code and solar reflectance index (SRI) rating.
 
Clicking on a swatch expands the sample and unveils product codes for the same color in other PPG brands and resin formulations, as well as suggested uses for the coating. Another quick tap on the "expand" icon in the corner of the swatch enlarges it to full-screen size.
 
In the extrusion-coatings mode, a click on the "Request a Sample" icon takes visitors to the Sample and Literature Fulfillment Center on ppgideascapes.com , where they can add the panel to the shopping cart.
 
Icons for email and social media embedded in each swatch enable architects to share colors instantly with clients and colleagues. Clicking on the name of an individual brand generates information about its basic resin technology, coating system and gloss range.

VIDEO FEATURES DURANAR GR, CORAFLON GR GRAFFITI-RESISTANT CLEAR COATS 
Four-minute video describes,
demonstrates graffiti-removal system for metal panels









View PPG's video introducing DURANAR® GR (graffiti-resistant) and CORAFLON® GR factory-applied clear coats. When combined with DURAPREP® Prep 400 field-applied graffiti remover by PPG, the coatings create what is believed to be the only graffiti-resistant architectural coating system sold and tested by the same company.
 
The four-minute video describes how metal panels with factory-applied Duranar GR or Coraflon GR clear coats provide a graffiti-resistant barrier protecting the pigmented color layer of the panel, then demonstrates how Duraprep Prep 400 graffiti remover restores such panels to their original luster.
 
When field-applied to Duranar GR or Coraflon GR coatings, Duraprep Prep 400 graffiti remover can eradicate spray paint, pen and marker ink, lipstick, scuff marks, tape residue, bugs, tar and other substances that mar the appearance of commercial buildings.
 
PPG developed Duranar GR and Coraflon GR clear coats to help U.S. building owners combat vandalism by graffiti, a problem that costs an estimated $25 billion per year. They are made with the same resin technologies as standard Duranar and Coraflon coatings, and they offer the same performance warranties.
 
Duranar GR coatings are available in low and medium glosses; Coraflon GR coatings are for high-gloss applications.
