AMPP LOGOTo create a unified voice for the corrosion control and protective coatings industries, a new association launched January 6, at a global virtual event.

The new organization, the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), was formed by a merger between Houston-based NACE International, The Corrosion Society; and Pittsburgh-based SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings. AMPP’s name, logo, and other brand elements were revealed at the event led by AMPP CEO, Bob Chalker and the organization’s executive leadership.

“AMPP brings together the world’s leading corrosion prevention and protective coatings organizations under one umbrella,” says Chalker. “With a vision to create a safer, protected, and sustainable world, the new association will focus on the future of materials protection and performance.”

With more than 40,000 members in 130 countries, AMPP consists of two governance structures— AMPP and AMPP Global Center. AMPP provides services to members in the areas of certification, accreditation, membership, advocacy and public affairs, while AMPP Global Center focuses on standards, technical and research activities, conferences, events, education, training, publications, and preprofessional programming.

While the AMPP staff has been working together seamlessly since October, some program details such as accreditation and certification continue to evolve. For the near future, NACE and SSPC accreditations and certifications will remain as they are currently.

“For years, AMPP’s new combined membership has been aligned in one very important way: our members are dedicated to protecting infrastructure and assets from corrosion and deterioration. Guided by this common purpose we will be a stronger, more powerful voice for our industry by working together,” says Chalker.

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.
