PPG Industries has added a new packaging unit to its coatings plant and aerospace application support center in Gonfreville, France. PPG is now able to offer customers in Southern Europe the benefits of proprietary Semco ready-to-use, disposable cartridges for storing, mixing and applying multiple-component adhesives, sealants, epoxies, polysulfides, polyurethanes and other materials that require mixing.

The new equipment enables PPG to supply its coatings and sealants as well as adhesives and other third-party chemicals in “customer-friendly” packaging, said Dirk Thelen, PPG business manager, ASC-South Europe.

“They provide the quality assurance of delivering the material at the ratio needed and contaminant-free, with labor and time savings related to mixing and applying the material,” he added, noting that PPG has a team of experts to work with customers and identify the best packaging for a specific application.

The repackaging unit at Gonfreville meets ISO 9001 and EN 9100 quality standards, according to Thelen. “The repackaging unit has been approved by several aerospace customers. The benefits of integration into the Gonfreville site include conformity with chemical control and product stewardship requirements and European labeling.”
