PPG Aerospace’s Singapore show display (Booth D79) features industry offerings such as coatings, sealants, transparencies, packaging and application systems, engineered materials and transparent armor, as well as chemical management and other services.
Display highlights include the company’s Solaron Blue Protection UV+ blocking technology for aircraft windows. The recent technology helps protect aircrew, passengers, and aircraft interiors from solar radiation. According to PPG, the new "UV+ blocking technology blocks 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays and more than 50 percent of high-energy visible blue light." Flight deck windows, for example, can be made with Solaron Blue and take advantage of its protective features while not blocking the high visibility required for pilots.
Here in Singapore, PPG has committed to building a 38,750-sq-ft application support center at Seletar Aerospace Park. The $15 million facility represents the company’s largest investment ever in Southeast Asia. Scheduled for completion by the middle of the year, the ASC will accommodate the increased demand for aerospace sealants, adhesives, coatings, transparencies, chemical management services, and the packaging of third-party products.
