PPG PPG: Protecting and Beautifying the World for 135 Years As a global supplier of paints, coatings, optical products, and specialty materials, PPG has been helping customers since its founding in 1883. From humble beginnings with one plate glass factory in Pittsburgh, 135 years of innova- tion and product quality has led the company to 156 manu- facturing facilities around the globe. Through dedication and creativity, PPG works to solve its customers' biggest challenges in the consumer products, industrial, transpor- tation, and construction markets, as they benefit from PPG expertise and product solutions. From ocean-faring cargo ships to petroleum industry storage tanks, PPG products and coatings maximize perfor- mance and cost savings within a variety of industry seg- ments, including: • Infrastructure—PPG coatings are used on airports, bridges, pipelines, stadiums, water and wastewater treatment plants, water transmission, and storage. • Marine—Coatings for new-build vessels, dry dock situations, inland marine applications, and mainte- nance done at sea. • Mining—PPG highly specialized coatings are used in a wide range of demanding mineral extraction environments. • Oil, Gas, and Chemical—PPG provides a wealth of experience in highly specialized coatings protection for structural steel, storage facilities, process equip- ment, pipes, and in passive fire protection. State-of- the-art technology is used extensively within the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry, where assets are exposed to the most extreme corrosive conditions. • Power—Decades of innovation and investment gives PPG proven, durable products for a range of electric utility power applications: transmission towers, fossil fuel, nuclear, hydroelectric, and wind. PPG and NACE With its longtime affiliation with NACE International, PPG helps to solve corrosion challenges that NACE mem- bers have to address. Whether they're asset owners, con- tractors, fabricators, or applicators, they work in some of the world's most demanding conditions and environments. PPG product benefits include excellent abrasion resis- tance, corrosion and chemical resistance, outstanding color and gloss retention, and many more. High weathering and corrosion resistance technology from PPG extends product life cycle and reduces frequency of repainting, improving long-term maintenance, and giving corrosion engineers around the world the confidence to specify PPG products for any project. One PPG Place Pittsburgh, PA 15272, USA Tel: 1 888-9PPGPMC Email: Web site: PPG Industries Foundation and the NACE International Foundation As a further commitment to their partnership, the PPG Industries Foundation donates funds to provide two aca- demic scholarships—through the NACE International Foundation—to science and/or engineering students at accredited colleges or universities. The scholarships are given annually to two students in two or four year programs, to enhance their studies in coatings or corrosion technol- ogy, and to ultimately prepare the next generation of corro- sion professionals. The NACE and PPG Industries Founda- tions understand the value of corrosion technology, and by investing in scholarships, training, and workforce develop- ment programs, help to inspire students and educators to pursue the study of corrosion science and engineering.
