PITTSBURGH — PPG has published a new brochure highlighting its full line of PPG DURACOLOR® machine-applied coatings for pre-finished composite siding and trim boards and fiber-cement products. The brochure is designed to inform readers about the benefits of working with PPG and PPG Duracolor coatings.

The eight-page booklet illustrates the complete palette of decorative options available with PPG Duracolor solid-color topcoats, the PPG Duracolor IM 10-base intermix system and the PPG Duracolor palette of semi-transparent finishes. Applied by PPG factory-finished applicators, these products and technologies offer builders, lumber retailers, architects and homeowners thousands of color choices for engineered building materials, along with a history of proven durability in harsh exterior environments and applications exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light.

Color chips show nine options in the standard palette for solid-color topcoats, as well as 10 color bases in the PPG Duracolor intermix system. Photo samples of six semi-transparent finishes — sandstone, slate, cedar, maple, mahogany and redwood — are also provided.

The brochure features performance data for multiple finish types, including gloss ranges, coverage, film thicknesses, VOC content, drying methods and drying times. Photos of PPG Duracolor coatings after industry-standard testing for flexibility, crack resistance and color durability in accelerated weathering conditions demonstrate the durability of the products.

In addition to offering exceptional durability and an extensive selection of aesthetic options, PPG Duracolor machine-applied coatings provide better overall uniformity than field-applied coatings, including more consistent film builds and superior adhesion.
