PPG protective and marine coatings introduces PSX 700SG

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 14, 2010 PPG Industries protective and
marine coatings (PMC) business has introduced PSX 700SG for use by United
States Navy vessels and other federal marine coatings applications.

The new product is a semi-gloss version of PPG¹s patented PSX 700 epoxy
polysiloxane coating and has been engineered to meet and exceed marine
coating requirements established by the U.S. government. PSX 700SG is
approved on the U.S. Navy Qualified Product List (QPL) for topside and
freeboard applications and meets the U.S. Navy Federal Standard Color
standards for Haze Gray. PSX 700SG also complies with U.S. Department of
Defense MIL-PRF-24635E, Type V (high-durability), Type VI (high-durability,
low-volatile organic compound), Class 2 (semi-gloss), Grade B (low
solar-absorbing) specifications.

Steve Feldman, PPG national sales director, protective coatings, North
America, said PSX 700SG is a cutting-edge product that can reduce the total
operating cost of government vessels. ³In addition to its low-VOC
formulation, PSX 700SG has unlimited recoatability, making touch-up and
maintenance easier while being a color-stable LSA (low solar-absorbing)

PSX 700SG also offers superior abrasion resistance, wide cure-temperature
flexibility and unique surface tension to minimize rust or dirt streaking.
