Tecnoglass S.A. of Barranquilla, Colombia, has been accredited as the first international participant in the PPG CAP Certified Applicator Program - a group of commercial coating applicators certified by PPG Industries to apply high-performance fluoropolymer coatings to aluminum architectural components. PPG CAP program applicators undergo a rigorous auditing process that encompasses all aspects of the coating process, from cleaning and pre-treating of the metal substrate to the actual application of the coating. The audit also contains a continuous training and education component and specifies paint application parameters and cure schedules, as well as how finished products should be handled, packed and shipped.
