PITTSBURGH – (BUSINESS WIRE) – PPG (NYSE: PPG) announced today that three of its innovative coating technologies have received the R & D® 100 Awards 2021: PPG BFP-SE Battery Fire Protection, PPG ENVIROCRON ™ Extreme Protection Thermally Conductive Powder Coatings and PPG HI-TEMP® 1027 HD coating.
“At PPG, our global science and technology team works tirelessly to bring value to our customers,” said David Bem, vice president, science and technology and chief technology officer, PPG. “Leveraging our cross-industry expertise – combined with our constant quest to help our customers – enables our company to lead the industry when it comes to innovation. We are proud to be honored with this valued recognition. ”
PPG BFP-SE Battery Fire Protection is an innovative coating that protects batteries in electric vehicles from fire, helping to reduce thermal runaway events and improve passenger safety. These solutions can be mass produced, used efficiently, and include battery fire protection suitable for various vehicle battery applications.
PPG Envirocron Extreme Protection thermally conductive powder coatings combine dielectric protection and thermal conductivity in a single multifunctional coating for electric vehicle battery packs. PPG’s proprietary platform improves cooling efficiency and provides exceptional electrical insulation that mitigates arcing and short circuits to improve battery performance and passenger safety.
PPG HI-TEMP 1027 HD is the company’s next-generation, environment-hardening, high-temperature anti-corrosion coating (CUI) that is ideal for new construction projects. It has excellent hardness and corrosion resistance, even in severe cyclic temperatures of -196 degrees Celsius (-320 degrees Fahrenheit) to 540 degrees Celsius (1000 degrees Fahrenheit). The resistance of the coating to wear and tear and corrosion that can occur on pipes, containers and components helps to avoid damage and the resulting repair work and saves time and money.
In addition, LIQUID NAILS® FUZE * IT MAX® all-purpose construction adhesive was recognized by PPG as a finalist of the R&D 100 Awards 2021. This advanced adhesive uses hybrid technology to provide both exceptional grip and long-term strength to bond almost anything to anything in any weather.
