Two of PPG's High Performance Coatings products - Aquapon water-based epoxy and Pitt-Guard rapid-coat, direct-to-rust epoxy - were used to protect Pittsburgh's CONSOL Energy Center's structural steel from ultraviolet (UV) exposure, rust and other environmental hazards.

Aquapon epoxy is a fast-drying, low VOC coating with a hard, durable finish that resists exposure to corrosive solvents, acids, alkalis and salts.  Pitt-Guard epoxy is engineered for barrier protection of steel, aluminum, hot-dipped galvanized steel and masonary surfaces.  It has excellent wetting characteristics that enable application and good performance over tightly adhering rust and excellent performance over abrasive blasted surfaces.

These PPG High Performance Coatings also helped the CONSOL Energy Center to become the first NHL arena to earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
