Global coatings company PPG announced last week a five-year preferred paint supplier agreement with Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world’s largest regional theme park company and largest operator of waterparks in North America.

Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

According to PPG, paint products offered through this agreement will help create brand consistency and protect Six Flags’ attractions, coasters and offices.

One of the PPG paint products to be used as part of the agreement is PPG Permanizer paint. The product’s 100% acrylic formula provides a finish with a durable film, adhesion and protection from ultraviolet light, dirt and moisture.

The agreement’s portfolio of PPG products also includes PPG Amerlock 2 coatings with low volatile organic compounds, PPG PSX 700 products, PPG PSX 800 coatings, PPG Fastdry 35 products, PPG Truefinish products and various PPG Delfeet products.

Other Recent Deals

Near the end of last year, PPG announced that aviation maintenance company, Magnetic MRO had selected a variety of PPG aerospace coatings to complete a recent VIP aircraft repaint project for a private charter flights management company.

The VIP aircraft repaint project was completed in just 16 days at Magnetic MRO’s Tallinn facility in Estonia.

For the project, Magnetic MRO selected Embraer-approved PPG Desoprim HS CA7755BE epoxy primer, which was used in combination with PPG Desothane CA8000 system and was finished with Desothane HD 9008B0900D buffable clearcoat. PPG reports that the coatings system provides airlines with greater flexibility and choice for exterior livery systems.

Also last fall, PPG has released the specifics of its involvement and partnership with the Allegiant Stadium, the $1.97 billion sports venue recently completed in Las Vegas.

PPG noted that most of the stadium’s interior, exterior and structure surface were finished with PPG materials.

PPG announced the partnership with the National Football League’s Oakland Raiders in February 2019, which was billed as a multi-year corporate marketing agreement. The terms were not disclosed.

In conjunction with that marketing agreement, the company announced at the time that protective and decorative coatings from its industrial, refinish, protective and marine and architectural coatings businesses were going to be featured.

For the project, PPG said that it recommended its PPG Amercoat 68 HS and PPG PSX® 700 coatings, which were specified in custom-formulated “Black Gold” and “Silver Fox” colors to meet and match the team’s silver and black uniforms.

The PPG Amercoat 68 HS is a three-component zinc-rich epoxy primer, that aims to provide corrosion protection with the ability to be top-coated quickly. The PPG PSX is a finish coat that aims to deliver adhesion as well as corrosion and chemical resistance, along with gloss and color retention.

PPG also formulated the signature colors in PPG Duranar XL coatings for the venue’s curtainwall.

Based on PPG’s proprietary 70% polyvinylidene fluoride formulation, the four-layer coating system has the goal of delivering abrasion and chemical resistance while retaining its color after decades of exposure to the Las Vegas sun.

Other products used throughout the stadium include Perma-Crete interior/exterior alkali resistant primer and a Speedhide interior eggshell latex enamel. Pitt-Glaze WB1 acrylic epoxy coatings were used in high-traffic areas and Seal-Grip alkyd universal primers were used to protect numerous interior and exterior surfaces.
