IIMAK, PPG Join on Decorative Glass Efforts

PPG Industries in Pittsburgh has announced a marketing alliance with IIMAK, Amherst, N.Y. The agreement authorizes PPG to promote IIMAK's new, DecoTherm digital ceramic frit technology in combination with Starphire ultra clear glass by PPG, as a decorative glass solution for use in commercial applications across North America. IIMAK will also promote Starphire glass as the exclusive "ultra-clear" glass for decorative images.

PPG's architectural team will introduce the DecoTherm custom technology to the design community. "PPGs innovative approach and extensive reach in the marketplace makes them ideal for educating designers on new products like DecoTherm digital ceramic frit that are complementary to their glass offerings," says Scott Surma, national sales manager for IIMAK. "The PPG team will show designers new, more creative ways to utilize decorative glass in interior and exterior projects."

The DecoTherm digital ceramic frit joins ICD High-Performance Coatings, Vancouver, Wash., a manufacturer of high-performance silicone coatings for spandrel glass, in the PPG marketing alliance partner group.

"PPG continues to look for alliances involving innovative technologies to provide the architectural and design communities with solutions to their building needs," says Bob Krystyniak, PPG manager of strategic alliances.
