PPG Honored for E-Coat Technology
Nov. 12, 2019—PPG's POWERCRON 160 anionic epoxy electrocoat (e-coat) technology recently earned an award in the mechanical/materials category.
“Earning an R&D 100 Award is a pinnacle of achievement in the global research and development community, and we are proud to be recognized for this groundbreaking coatings technology,” said David Bem, PPG vice president, science and technology, and chief technology officer.
PPG Powercron 160 anionic epoxy e-coat is, according to the company, a technical advance in electrocoat technology because it enables high film builds (greater than 6 mils) over multiple substrates and pretreatment chemistries. It also cures at lower temperatures than conventional anionic e-coats, which further reduces energy use and related carbon emissions.
