With the debut of Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV, on September 21 in prime time and in front of a national television audience on Monday Night Football, most of the venue’s interior, exterior and structural surfaces were finished with PPG paints, coatings and specialty materials.
The new stadium is replete with distinctive black and silver colors. PPG provided an extensive roster of easy-to-apply and long-lasting products to protect and enhance the stunning appearance of the venue now situated adjacent to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
“It’s been incredible to see a wide range of PPG coatings come together in the design and construction of Allegiant Stadium,” said Bryan Iams, PPG Vice President, Corporate and Government Affairs. “We are extremely proud that our paints, coatings and specialty materials have played a central role in the design and construction of this extraordinary facility.
“Our strong partnerships in Las Vegas have enabled our businesses to come together to help protect and beautify Allegiant Stadium,” he added.
PPG products used on the stadium incorporate protective and decorative coatings demanding the company’s full range of expertise in industrial, refinish, protective and marine, and architectural applications.
Based on PPG’s recommendation, PPG AMERCOAT® 68 HS and PPG PSX® 700 coatings was selected for the project, and specified the coatings system in custom-formulated “Black Gold” and “Silver Fox” colors to meet and match the team’s iconic silver and black uniforms.
A three-component, zinc-rich epoxy primer, PPG AMERCOAT 68 HS coatings provide excellent corrosion protection and the ability to be top-coated quickly. As the finish coat, PPG PSX coatings deliver excellent adhesion and outstanding corrosion and chemical resistance, along with long-term gloss and color retention.
PPG also formulated the signature colors in PPG DURANAR® XL coatings for the venue’s glittering curtainwall. Based on PPG’s proprietary 70% polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) formulation, the four-layer coating system delivers excellent abrasion and chemical resistance and has the ability to retain its bright color after decades of exposure to Las Vegas’ harsh sunlight.
PPG PAINTS® products used throughout the stadium include PERMA-CRETE® interior/exterior alkali resistant primer and a SPEEDHIDE® interior eggshell latex enamel to complement the stadium’s rich finishes. PITT-GLAZE® WB1 acrylic epoxy coatings maximize protection and service life in high-traffic areas. SEAL-GRIP® alkyd universal primers protect numerous interior and exterior surfaces.
