PPG Industries has been named a Metal of Honor winner byMetal Roofingmagazine. According to the magazine, the company was selected by attendees of the 2007 METALCON trade show and readers as one of the metal roofing industry's top companies in terms of quality of products, service, delivery and competitive pricing.

PPG manufactures Duranar fluoropolymer coatings for protecting and beautifying metal building components. The product line includes Duranar SPF infrared (IR)-reflective coatings, which help metal roofs reflect rather than absorb the sun's heat, lowering air-conditioning costs, improving comfort for building occupants and reducing urban heat island effect. Because Duranar SPF coatings are available in many light, medium and dark colors, they offer environmentally conscious architects design flexibility and the energy performance needed to meet rigorous "green" building standards.

PPG recently introduced Durastar and Truform HP enhanced polyester coatings to the U.S. coatings market. Truform HP coatings are available in bright colors; Durastar coatings feature more earth tones.
