Canadian Finishing and Coatings Manufacturing

April 5, 2021

PPG ChinaOn April 1, PPG opened its China Application Innovation Center (CAIC) in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China. The facility is the company’s first cross-business research and development (R&D) center in the region, serving as a bridge between innovation and customer applications for its industrial, packaging and automotive refinish coatings businesses, PPG says.

The CAIC is located adjacent to PPG’s Zhangjiagang manufacturing plant. The center will enable PPG to simulate the diverse environments and climates where its paints and coatings may be applied. Scientists will test the properties of coating technologies, provide color design, and offer customers more customized paint products and solutions for broad applications.

The CAIC location also will enable PPG to quickly move newly developed applications to trial production at its Zhangjiagang plant, enabling increased speed to market and accelerating product and service customization, PPG adds.

“The Zhangjiagang CAIC will play an essential role by fostering further collaboration between PPG businesses, increasing efficiency in product development and testing, and introducing more innovative applications and products to the Chinese market,” says Vincent Robin, PPG president, Asia Pacific. “This investment is an important step for PPG, honoring our commitment to the development of sustainable products, new applications and advanced technology in China and reinforcing our leadership in the industry.”
