Three PPG products in Architectural Record best of 2014

13 March 2015

Three products introduced by PPG Industries in 2014 were chosen among the best new products of the year in an annual competition held by Architectural Record magazine, one of the industry’s most widely-read trade publications.

Duranar GR (graffiti-resistant) and Coraflon GR coatings for architectural metal were selected in the ‘Finishes and Surfacing’ category. Solarban z75 solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass was chosen in the category of ‘Façades’.

Duranar GR and Coraflon GR coatings are based on the same fluoropolymer formulations that have made conventional Duranar and Coraflon coatings popular with architects for decades. Both function as factory-applied clearcoats over the pigmented layer of a metal coating to create a graffiti-resistant barrier that may be wiped clean with Duraprep Prep 400 graffiti remover by PPG. In addition they enable the removal of pen and marker ink, bugs, tar, scuff marks and other substances.
