Powder coating was the initial technology that set PPG Coatings Services (formerly MetoKote Corporation and The Crown Group) on the road to growth. Today, electrocoating represents the primary coatings application technology at our facilities, but liquid coatings also remain an area of industry-leading knowledge and expertise.
While powder and electrocoating technologies provide excellent performance and durability qualities, liquid painting is still often the preferred choice for non-metallic substrates. That’s because, in many instances, powder coating and electrocoating require curing at temperatures that can damage or distort the substrate.
Liquid painting is also an excellent technology option for finishing assembled components and products where powder coating and electrocoating may not be suitable.
PPG Coatings Services applies liquid paint to a variety of products and substrates, including automotive steering gears, drive shafts, and hydraulic motors; truck wheels requiring special colors; tractor chassis assemblies and assembled machines. We also finish automotive exhaust system components with a special high temperature-resistant liquid paint.
The various liquid paint applications available through PPG Coatings Services are supported by century of accumulated application and engineering capabilities. If your company has a production coating challenge that must be met – especially if the challenge requires unique application technology – count on PPG Coatings Services to get the job done.
