PPG Color Services Reaches 100,000 Color Match

PPG Industrial Finishes Color Services, a division of Pittsburgh-based PPG Industries that automatically dispenses and color-matches for coil and aluminum extrusion customers, announced that it has reached a milestone with the creation of its 100,000th custom color match, labeled UC100000 Polycron® III Harp Beige. The milestone color was matched for EPCO Extrusion Painting Co., of Boardman, Ohio.

"Over three decades of color-matching, PPG has made tremendous improvements in efficiency," said Shelley Sturdevant, PPG's color services manager. "Once a task of manually grinding pigments with resins and solvents, color-matching has evolved into an automated activity with use of PPG's proprieatary Kaleidoscope™ dispense-cell technology."
