PPG Industries’ coil and building products-exterior coatings group announced it is a licensee for Kynar ADS II polyvinylidene fluoride resin by Arkema Inc., a key ingredient in PPG’s Duranar air-dry system coatings.

“The need for on-site repair is common with window frames, door frames and metal walls and roofs that are nicked or scratched during production, shipping or installation on the job site,” says Brian Knapp, PPG director, coil and building products. “With this licensing agreement and the development of Duranar ADS coatings, customers have a single-source, touch-up paint based on resin chemistry that is virtually identical to the original, factory-applied Duranar coating to ensure color consistency and long-term color and gloss retention.”
