This company’s industrial coatings business introduced the ULTRAPAX™ coatings system, a packaged system of pretreatment products and powder coatings reportedly engineered together to meet stringent standards for the protection of metal substrates. The UltraPax system reportedly enables manufacturers in a variety of industries to purchase pretreatment products and powder coatings in a single package customized to their specific performance and appearance requirements.

Randy Brent, PPG director, pretreatment and engineered products technology, said the UltraPax system is designed to help customers achieve superior coatings performance while streamlining their supply chains. “As the only manufacturer of both pretreatment and coatings products, PPG is uniquely able to formulate, produce and test all of its pretreatment and powder coatings together,” he said. “As a result, we can provide customized coatings system solutions that deliver exceptional metal protection, along with the value and simplicity of working with a single-source supplier.”

In the UltraPax system, pretreatment products are paired with ENVIROCRON®powder coatings by PPG. Available in more than 300,000 digitally matched colors, Envirocron coatings are formulated with polyester-, urethane-, epoxy- and hybrid-based resin systems to provide hardness and abrasion resistance. Each UltraPax coating system is tested on cold- and hot-rolled steel using ASTM standards for salt-spray resistance, impact resistance, flexibility (conical mandrel bending), and adhesion.
