The PPG Paints™ brand announces product enhancements that will help painting professionals get the job done right and, ultimately, enhance their customers’ experiences. The new product formulations include Perma-Crete® Pitt-Flex® elastomeric coating and Speedhide® Pro-EV Zero coating.


Perma-Crete® Pitt-Flex® elastomeric coating offers a 100% acrylic formula that touts exceptional dirt resistance, as well as a flexible bond to prevent hairline cracks and protect against water infiltration to achieve uniform, pinhole-free jobs. To help keep pros’ jobs moving and save time, the reformulated product can be applied to concrete that is more than seven days old and with a pH level of less than 13. It can also be applied and performs in temperatures as low as minus –35°F, a significant enhancement.


PPG Paints Speedhide® PRO-EV ZERO coating is ideal for professionals who require high performance at an affordable price. The Speedhide Pro-EV Zero formula provides excellent hide and coverage, adhesion, uniformity and broad color-matching capabilities, now with a zero-VOC formula (colorants added to this base paint may increase VOC level significantly depending on color choice). The product enables seamless repairs, with touch-ups easily blending in to the original coating for less sheen variation.
