PPG white paper compares liquid, powder coatings for aluminum applications Document presents unbiased view of architectural design and technology choices


PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business has published a new white paper comparing the environmental, economical and performance advantages associated with the application of liquid and powder coatings on architectural aluminum.

The eight-page technical document reviews historical factors that have made liquid coatings the prevailing choice of North American architects and powder coatings the preferred option in Europe. It also examines environmental advantages associated with powder coatings and the design and custom-color benefits of liquid coatings. The paper notes that differences between the two types of coatings may be narrowing, offering architects and building owners a wider range of design and technology choices.

Henry L. Lowman, PPG director of sales for extrusion coatings, said the white paper was published to provide an objective comparison of liquid and powder coatings in light of recent technological advances.

“PPG manufactures both liquid and powder coatings,” Lowman explained. “Our goal with this white paper is to give architects, building owners, specifiers and curtainwall consultants an unbiased view of the expanding design and technology choices for architectural aluminum coatings. We also want to reduce the levels of risk and uncertainty these professionals feel when specifying one technology over the other.”

The white paper was introduced at GreenBuild, an international trade show hosted annually by the U.S. Green Building Council, which promotes sustainable building practices and principles. This year’s event took place Nov. 7-9 in Chicago.
