Linetec Becomes Accredited as PPG Certified Applicator

Linetec has announced that it has been accredited as a member of the PPG Certified Applicator Program (CAP). This accreditation certifies Linetec to apply PPG exterior coatings, including Duranar® and Coraflon® Kynar 500®/Hylar 5000® coatings.

"As qualified participants of CAP, our customers have even more assurance that they receive the highest possible levels of quality, reliability and performance," said Rick Marshall, Linetec president.

"We are committed to continually improving color uniformity and to providing responsive customer service," added Tammy Schroeder, Linetec marketing specialist. "PPG's CAP builds on our existing tools with a set of protocols further minimizing the potential for color variance in coatings. Additionally, PPG provides educational and promotional support to help us share this experience with architects, general contractors and glazing contractors in the commercial construction marketplace."

To become a part of PPG's CAP, Linetec was required to meet a rigorous auditing process that encompassed all aspects of the coating process. The audit also specifies procedures for the cleaning and pre-treating of metal substrates, paint application parameters and cure schedules and how finished products should be handled, packed and shipped.
