PPG Industries’ protective and marine coatings business was awarded the 2013 Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence from SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings. The company was recognized for the performance of its PSX ONE, a one-component acrylic-siloxane coating applied to the exterior of the historic USS Iowa battleship, which now houses an interactive naval museum at the Port of Los Angeles.
PSX ONE is engineered to provide high color and gloss retention in a durable, low-VOC, non-isocyanate formulation. It also offers abrasion resistance, cure-temperature flexibility and high surface tension to minimize rust and dirt streaking.
