PITTSBURGH — PPG recently announced that it has launched a new online powder e-commerce website to provide powder coating job shops, metal fabricators, metal manufacturers and others in the United States with quick and easy access to small batches of the company’s powder coatings.

The online store features 4,500 products, including 200 of PPG’s top powder coatings in more than 100 colors and quantities ranging from 5 to 50 pounds. The shop offers same-day shipping for products purchased before 3 p.m. ET, as well as free standard shipping. Overnight delivery options are available for all orders.

Within the platform’s extensive product library, customers can use a comprehensive set of filtering options that include collections, such as RAL, Pantone and Federal Standard; color; gloss; durability; and finish. Order confirmation and tracking information are available after all purchases.

“At PPG, we strive to make the customer’s purchasing experience as easy as possible, and we recognize that customers increasingly prefer to make purchasing decisions online,” said Shelley Verdun, PPG Business Manager, Powder, Americas. “Our new online powder shop helps customers efficiently find the exact product that meets their specifications using the convenient filtering options. These products include protective coatings that are engineered for heat-sensitive substrates and offer high transfer efficiency and edge coverage.”

In addition to simplifying the powder purchasing process, the new website provides product information, such as technical data and safety data sheets, and insights on the materials and application process used for PPG powder coatings.

PPG reports that its powder coatings offer benefits over other coatings technologies, including low production cost per unit, ease in reclaiming and recycling, extended durability, exceptional chip and abrasion resistance, and 95% transfer efficiency.
