WINNER: Process eliminates primer booth
PPG Industries Inc.
What: Premium B1:B2 compact process paint technology Innovation: PPG’s process speeds vehicle painting by moving primer application to the top-coat booth. This eliminates the dedicated primer booth and related processing. Two base-coat layers, B1 and B2, are applied wet-on-wet and do not require baking or heated dehydration between them. The process cuts energy use and emissions of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds. First customer: Confidential Web site: ppg.com
