PPG Industries’ coil and building products group in Pittsburgh has launched the PPG Metal Coatings Online Color Selector Tool at ppgideascapes.com, which allows for larger swatches, reflectance data and cross-referenced color codes, among other new features.

The tool features digital versions of all 90 colors in the PPG Architectural Liquid and Powder Coatings Color Guide and each of the 80 colors in the PPG Building Products Coil Coatings Color Guide. Visitors can access large swatches for all 170 colors through two modules—for extrusion coatings and coil coatings—and filter searches by color family or by brand name.

Sharon Bird, PPG marketing communications manager of industrial coatings, says the new color selector tool is designed to simplify and accelerate the color specification process. “With a few quick clicks, architects and designers can find everything they need to learn about or compare specific metal coatings, from their solar-reflectance ratings to their resin formulations and suitability for particular applications,” she says. “Our online sample-ordering system also is incredibly simple, which makes it faster and easier for architects to show clients and prospects the colors they are considering for any building project.”
