Pittsburgh-based coatings giant PPG recently announced the opening of a new wood coatings research and development lab at its Springdale, Pennsylvania, facility.

According to the company, the lab is dedicated to developing coatings for wood products such as flooring, cabinets, millwork, molding and doors in the commercial and residential environments.

The lab will also allow PPG to transfer the technologies from wood to other building product substrates, according to Kevin Braun, PPG vice president, Industrial Coatings, America.

“There are three main factors driving coatings development across the wood and interior building product segments,” said Braun.

“They are differentiation through color and aesthetics, product durability and improved process efficiency to control manufacturing costs. By combining our product development capabilities at Springdale, our staff can quickly assimilate technical advances for all types of building product coatings and improve our collaboration with the staff at PPG’s Coatings Innovation Center in nearby Allison Park.”

Areas of study will include ultraviolet-cure coatings, waterborne and solvent-borne coatings and specialty products.
