PPG Industries’ building products/exterior coatings group has accredited Durapaint Industries Ltd. (Scarborough, Ontario) as a member of the PPG Certified Applicator Program (PPG/CAP) group. This network consists of commercial coating applicators certified by PPG to apply its high-performance Duranar fluoropolymer coatings to aluminum architectural components.

“We are proud to become a PPG/CAP member,” says Elio Zarlenga, president of Durapaint. “This certification emphasizes our commitment to our customers and increases our ability to deliver high-quality products, service and expertise.”

Brian Knapp, PPG director, coil and building products, says that his company is equally pleased to welcome Durapaint Industries to the PPG/CAP group. “One reason we enjoy working with Durapaint Industries is their dedication to continually reinvesting in their products, people and processes. We look forward to working with them as certified applicators to ensure that they remain on the cutting edge of coatings products and technologies.”

To qualify for PPG/CAP group membership, applicators undergo a rigorous audit encompassing all aspects of the coating process. The audit specifies paint application parameters and cure schedules as well as how finished products are handled, packed and shipped.
