Bob ChalkerTo create a unified voice for the corrosion control and protective coatings protection industries, a new organization will be unveiled at a virtual global launch event on January 6, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. (CST). Accompanied by member leadership, the new association’s CEO, Bob Chalker, will host the event where a new name and logo will be introduced.

Houston-based NACE International, The Corrosion Society; and Pittsburgh-based SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings, have combined their corrosion and coatings resources to create a new organization representing today’s global workforce skilled in materials protection and performance.

The new non-profit organization will consist of two governance structures under one umbrella – one to manage membership, certification, accreditation and advocacy; and one to provide standards and technical activities, conferences and events, education and training, research activities, publications and pre-professional programming.

The event will be held on Zoom at:

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
