PPG at NATM and NTEA Shows: to Exhibit Advanced Coatings Products and Applications

Published on 2015-02-12. Author : SpecialChem

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio -- PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) commercial coatings group will exhibit advanced coatings products at the upcoming National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) and National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) annual trade events. The NATM national convention and show is scheduled in New Orleans at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The NTEA event, “The Work Truck Show,” will take place at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

 The NATM represents manufacturers of light- and medium-duty trailers as well as suppliers of products and services to those manufacturers. The organization was established to help improve trailer safety and performance and provide a voice for trailer manufacturers and their suppliers when issues of trailer safety and regulation arise. This will be the NATM’s 27th annual convention. In booth 413 PPG will present its latest coating technologies. 
Since becoming an NATM member in 1999, PPG has worked closely with the organization and its members to help them meet evolving manufacturing requirements with a variety of advanced coatings products that provide superior durability, efficiency and versatility. PPG initiated convention sponsorship in 2003. 

Additionally, PPG and NATM are co-sponsors of the Green Manufacturing Award. The annual prize honors an NATM member that has developed a manufacturing solution or innovation that affects the environment in a positive way. The 2015 winner will be announced at the show. 

As with the NATM, PPG has a strong relationship with the NTEA and its members. The NTEA show is considered the work truck industry’s most important annual event, where attendees can learn about new products, technological developments and services as well as key issues facing the industry. PPG's display in booth 4374 will emphasize its ongoing product development and offerings for the trucking industry.

 The NTEA represents approximately 1,600 companies that manufacture, distribute, install, sell and repair commercial trucks, truck bodies, truck equipment, trailers and accessories. Buyers of work trucks and major commercial truck chassis manufacturers are also members. The organization provides technical information and educational programs and services for members. 

Representatives of PPG's commercial coatings group will attend both events to present the company's products and applications. 

PPG's commercial coatings group offers a full range of coatings technologies for the commercial transportation and light-industrial markets such as polyurethanes, alkyds, epoxies, polyurea, waterborne, pretreatment chemicals and powder coatings. PPG's commercial coatings products are marketed under brand names such as the DELFLEET® Evolution, DELFLEET ESSENTIAL®, Commercial Performance Coatings and AMERCOAT® lines.
