PITTSBURGH -- PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has displayed DURANAR® GR (graffiti-resistant) and CORAFLON® GR coatings and unveiled several new concept colors for Duranar VARI-COOL® coatings at METALCON International 2014 in Denver's Colorado

Visitors to PPG booth 1712 found information about recently introduced Duranar GR and GR coating systems, which are formulated with a graffiti-resistant clear barrier coating over the pigmented color layer, enabling the removal of spray paint, lipstick, scuff marks, tape residue, bugs, tar and other substances with DURAPREP® Prep 400 graffiti remover by PPG.

PPG debut new concept colors for Duranar VARI-Cool coatings, which combine proprietary ULTRA-COOL® infrared-reflective (IR-reflective) coating technology by PPG with special pigments that appear to shift color when viewed from different angles or in changing light conditions.

There also was information about new Duranar ADS (air-dry system) coating. Designed for touching up fluoropolymer finishes on architectural metals, this newly formulated product is available in a wide range of solid, metallic and pearlescent colors. It is ideal for use on window frames, door frames, roofs and metal wall panels marred during fabrication or installation, and it can be specified to incorporate PPG's IR-reflective pigments.

In addition to exhibiting products, PPG offered METALCON visitors three daily opportunities to win an Apple® iPad mini™ tablet.
