Licensing Agreement  
PG Industries’ coil and building products-exterior coatings group is now  
a licensee for Kynar ADS II polyvinylidene fluoride resin by Arkema Inc., a  
key ingredient in PPG’s Duranar air-dry system coatings.  
The need for on-site repair is common with window frames, door frames and  
metal walls and roofs that are nicked or scratched during production, shipping  
or installation on the jobsite,” says Brian Knapp, PPG director, coil and building  
products. “With this licensing agreement and the development of Duranar ADS  
coatings, customers have a single-source, touch-up paint based on resin chem-  
istry that is virtually identical to the original, factory-applied Duranar coating to  
ensure color consistency and long-term color and gloss retention.”
