PPG has published a general electrical brochure and three sell sheets highlighting coating solutions for manufacturers of transformers, switchgear, enclosures, lighting fixtures and other electrical components. 

The brochure details product and performance benefits associated with PPG liquid, powder, electrocoat (e-coat) and pretreatment technologies. Highlighted brands include Spectracron liquid coatings, Envirocron powder coatings, Powercron e-coats and Zircobond, X-Bond and Ultraguard pretreatment products.

The included sell sheets provide more details about coating specific types of electrical equipment:

  • The transformer coatings sell sheet explains the advantages of using multi-technology PPG coatings systems to protect pole- and pad-mounted as well as submersible transformers from common environmental hazards such as corrosion, ultraviolet (UV) exposure, chemical attack, thermal cycling and abrasion. It also highlights PPG’s broad coatings color selection and ability to meet Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) performance standards.
  • The switchgear and enclosure coatings sell sheet covers PPG’s complete portfolio of coatings and technologies for switchgear manufacturers and their suppliers. A chart highlights specific chemistries, color availability and performance attributes for more than a dozen PPG coatings and pretreatment systems.
  • The lighting fixtures coatings sell sheet presents PPG’s full array of coating brands and technologies. These include specialty products such as bright, high-reflectance white coatings for interior lighting systems; corrosion-, chemical- and UV-resistant coatings for outdoor lighting systems; and medical, food-grade, antimicrobial and NSF-certified coatings for hospitals, food-processing facilities and other hygienic environments.

Maria Lamorey, PPG business development manager, electrical transmission and distribution equipment, says the new literature demonstrates PPG’s ability as a single-source supplier to electrical component manufacturers.

“This is a highly competitive industry, and manufacturers are always seeking new ways to manage costs,” she explained. “As one of few companies to offer liquid, powder, e-coat and pretreatment products as an integrated package, PPG can help companies gain value, streamline inventories and enhance the protection and appearance of their products.”
