Coatings & Materials from PPG Change What's Possible

PPG, the world's leading coatings and specialty materials company, will return to the IDTechEx Show! to showcase the company's cutting-edge solutions for electronics.
Visitors to booth P27 can talk one-on-one with representatives from PPG's electronic materials and mobility groups, PPG TESLIN® Substrate Products and Cuming Microwave, part of PPG's aerospace business.

PPG Mobility

PPG has a portfolio of innovative coatings that deliver new functionality and enable the Autonomous, Connected, Electrified, and Shared (ACES) ecosystem. As a global leader in coating science, PPG engineers and designers create coatings with a purpose—and at lower total cost—to deliver new capabilities for tomorrow's vehicles.
Electrification: PPG's broad-based material's expertise touches virtually every area of battery design and construction, helping customers boost energy density, extend service life, improve safety, increase manufacturing throughput and reduce cost per Kilowatt hour.
Battery Cell Technologies:
  • Iocron™ NMP Free Solventborne Cathode Binder
Battery Pack Assembly Coatings:
  • ENVIROCRON® Extreme Protection Dielectric Powder Coating
  • RAYCRON® UV-Cure Dielectric Coating
  • Battery Fire Protection (BFP) 150 Intumescent Coating
  • POWERCRON® Electrocoats
  • EMI / RFI Shielding Coatings
  • CORABOND® Epoxy Structural Adhesives
  • CORASEAL® Sealants
  • CORATHERM® Thermal Gap Filler
Coating Services Applications
Autonomous Vehicles: PPG's coating technologies enable safety and communication through efficient sensors and infrastructure via:
  • Transmissive coatings that minimize the loss of radar signals
  • Coatings that keep lenses and housings cleaner, while maintaining durability
  • Dark colors that become more reflective to LiDAR wavelengths, in all weather conditions.

PPG TESLIN® Substrate Products

Manufactured by PPG since it was invented more than 30 years ago, PPG TESLIN® substrate ( External Link) is a flexible synthetic paper that offers printed electronics applications greater durability and design creativity compared to rigid materials.
Thanks to its microporous structure, Teslin substrate offers performance benefits and a level of versatility that other synthetic papers and printable plastics cannot achieve. From durable product labels and sophisticated multi-layer, multi-component security credentials, Teslin substrate is backed by technical expertise that helps customers make the most of their investments.
  • EMI/RF Shielding
  • Printed Electronics
  • RFID Price Tags
  • Functional Labels & Packaging

PPG Electronic & Conductive Materials

PPG manufactures functional and conductive inks and coatings uniquely formulated to address the changing needs of technology.
PPG's state-of-the-art conductive coatings and printable circuit materials provide cost-effective solutions to a wide range of electromagnetic compatibility problems. These coatings are ideal for all types of consumer electronics, including mobile phones, pagers, TVs, cable boxes, receivers, entertainment and gaming systems, as well as computers, laptops and monitors.
With superior properties and lower application costs than vacuum metallization and selective plating, PPG conductive coatings achieve excellent electrical conductivity and shielding effectiveness in complex moldings or highly featured enclosures in high-volume production environments.
PPG also manufactures a wide range of conductive, insulative and resistive inks for printed circuitry applications, including membrane switches, touchpads, antennas, electroluminescent displays and printed sensors.
PPG's innovative transparent functional coatings bring exceptional durability, enhanced visibility and improved functionality to display and touchscreen surfaces.

PPG Cuming Microwave

Part of the PPG aerospace business, Cuming Microwave manufactures microwave absorber materials to eliminate EMI problems. These materials are designed to reduce cavity resonances and noise in electronic packages.
The portfolio includes engineered microwave materials working between 10 MHz and 110 GHz for military and aerospace, electronics, telecom, automotive, industrial and medical industries.
Advanced Microwave Materials
  • C-RAM® RF/Microwave Absorbers
  • C-STOCK® Low-Loss Dielectrics
Anechoic Chamber Design & Installation
  • C-RAM® Low, Medium & High Power RF/Microwave Pyramidal Absorbers
