PPG Commercial Coatings will exhibit its line of advanced coating products at the 28th annual National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) national convention and trade show. The show, regarded as this industry’s premier 2016 event, is scheduled Feb. 10–12 in Las Vegas, Nev., at the South Point Hotel. More than 800 attendees are expected. PPG will present its latest coating technologies in booth 813.

The convention supplies NATM members with educational, networking and communication opportunities as well as information about the latest industry products and services. PPG will display a trailer painted with various paint system technologies, resulting in real-life application scenarios. Representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

“We view this as one of PPG’s most important industry events,” said Steve Podlas, brand manager for PPG Commercial Coatings. “Because of our close relationship with the NATM, many of our products are developed specifically to address the requirements of the trailer industry. We’ll be displaying many of our coating brands including the DELFLEET® Evolution and DELFLEET ESSENTIAL® paint systems. We invite attendees to visit our booth and learn how PPG coatings can protect their products.”

The NATM is the trade association for manufacturers of light- and medium-duty trailers as well as suppliers of products and services to those manufacturers. The organization was established to help improve trailer safety and performance and to serve as the representative for trailer manufacturers and their suppliers when issues of trailer safety and pertinent regulations arise.

PPG became an NATM member in 1999 and has worked closely with the organization and its members to address evolving manufacturing requirements with a variety of PPG coating products that provide superior durability, efficiency and versatility. PPG began its convention sponsorship in 2003. PPG and NATM have also worked together as co-sponsors of the annual Green Manufacturing Award. The prize honors the NATM member that has developed the best environmentally conscious manufacturing solution or innovation. The 2016 winner will be announced at the show.
