PITTSBURGH -- PPG has introduced AQUACRON® 200 Series coating, a waterborne acrylic urethane for exterior building products that offers robust protection for wood, fiber glass, plastic, vinyl and composite substrates. The coating also can be formulated with heat-reflective pigments to enhance the durability and appearance of heat-sensitive substrates such as vinyl and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
Achieving Better Adhesion and Durability

Brian Smith, PPG light industrial coatings coordinator, said that Aquacron 200 Series coating is unique because it adheres strongly to a variety of substrates commonly used in the building products market. “Aquacron 200 Series coating will help manufacturers achieve better adhesion — whether they use wood, fiber glass or PVC composites — to improve the appearance and extend the service lives of their products,” he explained. “The ability to add solar reflectivity adds even higher levels of durability and environmental performance.”
In addition to offering exceptional adhesion on multiple substrates and excellent exterior durability, Aquacron 200 Series coating features strong chemical resistance, accelerated cure time and fast block resistance. Custom colors are available to facilitate color-matching, and Aquacron 200 Series coating meets American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) specifications for prefinished aluminum, vinyl and fiber glass, and Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) specifications for primed and prefinished wood.
Common applications for Aquacron 200 Series coating are patio and entry doors, molding and trim, windows, siding and other exterior building products made from plastic, fiber glass, primed-wood and vinyl components.
