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®
"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."
