Pittsburgh-based PPG Industries has published EcoLogical Solutions, a brochure highlighting the company’s architectural glass, coatings and paint products for the green building industry, according to a Jan. 14 release. The latest edition of the brochure, last published in 2006, features innovative new products such as:

• Duranar Vari-Cool coatings, the only architectural coatings that integrate color-shifting, polychromatic pigments with proprietary Ultra-Cool metal roof and siding technology by PPG;

• Solarban R100 glass, a neutral-reflective, solar-control, low-emissivity glass with better performance than competing products in the same architectural glass category;

• Sungate 400 glass, a passive low-emissivity glass with a magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition “soft coat” that helps commercial buildings in heating-dominated climates retain heat from the sun and reduce winter heating costs; and

• Duranar powder coatings, which combine the environmental advantages of powder coatings with the aesthetic versatility and performance benefits of Duranar liquid fluoropolymer coatings.

In addition to these new products, PPG continues to offer zero-volatile organic compound (VOC) Pure Performance Paint and other low-emitting PPG Pittsburgh Paints and PPG Porter Paints products.

The 12-page booklet also highlights PPG’s commitment to environmental stewardship through ongoing research and development, supply chain management, manufacturing-related green innovation and support of numerous global environmental organizations.

The brochure is part of PPG’s ongoing efforts to provide architects with green building solutions, said James Bogdan, PPG manager, sustainability marketing initiatives, in the release. “The principles and practices of green building are always changing," he said. "PPG’s technology and product offering constantly evolve in concert with the demands of the market.”
