PITTSBURGH – PPG Industries’ protective and marine coatings (PMC) business has been selected as a recipient of The Society for Protective Coatings’ (SSPC) George Campbell Award for 2009-2010.
PPG PMC earned the recognition for the performance of its Amerlock 2/400 coating at the Deer Island Water Treatment Facility in Boston Harbor. The product, a fast-setting, high-solid epoxy coating, was applied to a gravity thickener at the plant, which is the second-largest water treatment facility in the United States.
The George Campbell Award is given for outstanding achievement in the completion of a difficult or complex industrial commercial coatings project. PPG will receive the honor next month at the Paint and Decorating Contractors of America (PACE) Conference in Phoenix, AZ, as part of the SSPC annual meeting. The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, owners of the Deer Island plant, and coatings contractor SOEP Painting Corp. of Malden, MA, will receive the award in conjunction with PPG.
