PPG Debuts SMP Coatings with IR-Reflective Pigments

Published on 2016-12-07. Author : SpecialChem

PITTSBURGH -- 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.

Providing Exceptional Chalk Resistance

DURASTAR Coatings

Durastar ULTRA-Cool coatings incorporate new polyester-based resin, crosslinking and tinting technologies. It Protects:
  • Industrial
  • Agricultural
  • Storage 
  • Metal buildings 

Provides 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.

Value-oriented 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 DURANARTM 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.
