PPG Industries recently announced its Protective and Marine Coatings (PMC) business has been given a five-year contract by the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC) to continue providing coatings, solvents and technical services to its global fleet of 110 ships. Tim Knavish, PPG vice president for PMC, said the contract extends PPG’s commitment to serving the U.S. Navy and other military services. “PPG is proud to provide products and services that deliver value and help protect this country’s most critical military assets,” he said.

PPG previously supplied coatings to MSC, but this contract is the first to include the PSX®brand of polysiloxane coatings. Also included are AMERCOAT®240 epoxy coatings for external surfaces and tanks and SIGMAGLIDE®biocide-free foul release coatings, a system that enhances hull smoothness to increase fuel economy for ships and provide other operational and maintenance efficiencies.
