PPG (NYSE: PPG) today launched its Paints with Purpose campaign, which
will showcase the many unexpected applications of next-generation paint
and coatings technologies. These include paints that can cool the
temperature of asphalt on a hot day to protect a puppy’s sensitive paws;
coatings that can absorb sound or help reduce pollution; paint that
helps self-driving cars see; and stain that can be applied even on a
cold, wet day.
“When people talk about painting, they’re typically focused on
beautifying a space in their home or making their mark on a new one,”
said David Bem, PPG chief technology officer and vice president, science
and technology. “But next-generation paints and coatings will do much
more. From added safety, to enhanced comfort or just an easier way to
apply our products, Paints with Purpose aims to showcase real-life
examples of ways that paint can help improve our overall quality of
PPG will roll out the global marketing campaign over the coming months,
highlighting these unique applications and their impact on everyday life.
“The Paints with Purpose interactive campaign will bring to life these
unexpected applications through a variety of experiential activations
and digital storytelling,” said Bryan Iams, PPG vice president,
corporate and government affairs. “Our hope is that people will be
surprised at how new, innovative paints are helping to make their life
easier, and more colorful.”
