PPG Industries has supplied “green“ products in support of the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, including low-emissivity (low-E) glass and low-volatile organic compound (VOC) coatings for expo pavilions, along with waterborne paints to protect elevated roads near the event. The US pavilion features Solarban 70XL glass from PPG, the world“s first triple-silver-coated, solar control low-E glass, which transmits 64% of the sun“s natural light while blocking 73% of its solar energy. The glass, which is 20% more energy-efficient than competitive products, helps to save energy, cut costs and reduce the cooling equipment requirements for buildings where it is installed. PPG also provided super-low-VOC, low-odour Seigneurie Inotex interior coatings to decorate and protect the interior walls of the France pavilion, while IVY waterborne wood coatings also protect wood in the US, France, China and Russia pavilions. PPG“s Seigneurie Supersoytex waterborne paints were used to mark and protect more than one million square meters of main elevated road around Shanghai that were upgraded to support increased traffic during the World Expo 2010.
