Home Vendor News PPG CORAFLON powder coating & 55 Hudson Yards

PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that PPG CORAFLON® powder coatings were used on 55 Hudson Yards in New York City, making it one of the first skyscrapers in the U.S. to be finished with powder coatings.
The 51-story structure is a landmark in the Hudson Yards development, which is the country’s largest-ever private real estate development. Kohn Pederson Fox Associates designed the building to incorporate smooth and textured PPG Coraflon coatings on its metal curtainwall and window frames in the color Black Flower. The architectural firm selected the color, which was custom formulated by PPG, to mimic the classic cast-iron facades of neighboring SoHo and commemorate the industrial heritage of the building’s Meatpacking District setting.
Spectrum Metal Coatings, which is a member of the PPG CAP CERTIFIED APPLICATOR PROGRAM™ (PPG/CAP) and based in Youngstown, Ohio, factory applied nearly 20,000 pounds (9.1 metric tons) of PPG Coraflon powder coatings to metal components used on the building’s façade.
PPG Coraflon coatings are based on a proprietary fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) resin to provide satin and high-luster glosses, including solids and micas, along with outstanding color retention and superior chalk resistance. They can be used as a one-coat paint system or a two-coat system with a primer to achieve the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2605 standard for weathering performance.
Named a 2020 Design Award recipient by the New York chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), 55 Hudson Yards contains 1.3 million square feet (120,773 square meters) of fully leased office space. It is one of three skyscrapers in the Hudson Yards development finished with PPG coatings.
