PPG Showcases Prefinish Coatings for Building Materials at 2018 LBM Expo

PPG exhibited its broad portfolio of factory-applied primers, finishes, and stains at the 2018 Lumber and Building Materials (LBM) Expo, a Northeastern Retail Lumber Association (NRLA) event, the company reports.

The annual conference was held at the Rhode Island Convention Center February 14-16.

PPG showcased machine-applied coatings, which it says delivers significant advantages over coatings applied in the field, including the ability to coat every edge, angle, and groove to ensure thorough performance for every coated piece.

Products on display included PPG MACHINECOAT® exterior finish coatings for wood substrates and PPG DURACOLOR® exterior finish coatings for fiber cement and composite substrates.

PPG Machinecoat and Machinecoat Plus exterior finishes offer excellent color retention and strong adhesion, according to the company. They are available as solid colors or semi-transparent coatings.

Duracolor coatings are specifically designed for machine applicators, says PPG. The coatings are engineered to protect against harsh exterior exposure and ultraviolet degradation and are formulated to deliver excellent adhesion, color retention, and film flexibility.

The LBM Expo is dedicated to independent lumber and building material dealers and associated businesses. Covering three days of educational sessions, networking, and product introductions, the conference offers attendees access to the largest audience of independent lumber dealers and professionals in the industry, as well as the latest products and technical updates.
