PPG Industries Inc. has spread its wings in the aerospace sector, completing the acquisition of California specialty coatings maker Deft Inc.

Deft's products include structural primers and military topcoats for the North American aviation industry, as well as coatings for the architectural and general industrial markets.

“With the acquisition of Deft, we are now able to offer an even broader portfolio of innovative coatings that benefit our customers and reduce the impact on the environment,” Barry Gillespie, PPG vice president, aerospace, said in an announcement.

Terms of the deal, announced April 11, were not disclosed.

PPG Aerospace manufactures more than 1,000 types of coatings, primers, thinners, solvents and cleaners for the global aviation and aerospace industry.

“Deft’s waterborne and chrome-free technologies complement PPG’s existing coatings capabilities, particularly in the aerospace industry, and support PPG’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.”

About the Companies

Deft, formerly a privately owned company, says it has "developed various unique technologies for the general industrial and transit industry that meet today's stringent specifications while maintaining our goal of low to no VOCs."

The company says it was the first to introduce a zero-VOC, tint-based topcoat "that has become a staple for many of today's" military and commercial aerospace authorities.

PPG Aerospace which includes DeSoto Aerospace Coatings and Eldorado Paint Strippers and Cleaners, manufactures more than 1,000 types of coatings, primers, thinners, solvents and cleaners for the aerospace industry, with 18 coatings facilities around the world.
