Paint Brand Introduces Improved Formula for Low VOC - PPG Paints - Facility Management Product Release
The PPG Paints brand recently introduced the next generation of the less than 50 grams per liter volatile organic compound (VOC) version of Break-Through! interior and exterior waterborne acrylic paint. One of the PPG Paints brand’s most popular products, Break-Through! paint offers a unique and versatile technology that provides excellent adhesion, hardness and block resistance to a variety of residential and commercial surfaces such as floors, trim, cabinets, railings, shelving and equipment, as well as metal, wood, concrete, fiberglass, laminate and many plastics. In addition, the product provides a flexible and smooth, virtually brush-free finish that withstands cracking and peeling.
“The Break-Through! product is a unique coating, and we’re excited to provide professional specifiers, managers and applicators with this industry-leading low-VOC product technology that offers a solution to various project-, facilities-, time- and substrate-related challenges,” says John Salvadore, senior marketing manager, PPG Paints brand.
The application improvements for the less than 50 grams per liter VOC Break-Through! formula include:
