PPG will exhibit its wide-ranging line of coatings products at the annual U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals & Motorsports Spectacular to be held on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J. This will mark PPG’s fifth consecutive appearance at the one-day show. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the hugely popular event presents a full day of diesel truck drag racing, a custom car and truck show and a monster truck thrill spectacle. More than 20,000 people are expected to attend.

The PPG display will feature an array of the company’s commercial coatings products. A number of custom trucks, including several Class 8 diesel models, sporting finishes achieved using PPG DELFLEET® Evolution coatings, will be exhibited. In addition, the PPG Show Truck, a 75-foot 2016 Freightliner Cascadia tractor-trailer rig with its radiant red, white and blue paint motif suggestive of the American flag’s stars and stripes, will also be on the event grounds. The Show Truck’s unique paint job vividly demonstrates the vibrant colors, thrilling graphics and remarkable special effects that can be done with PPG’s commercial products. PPG representatives will be on hand to address any questions attendees may have. This year, as with last year, PPG will hold a fund-raising raffle to benefit Flying Horse Farms, a nonprofit camp in Mt. Gilead, Ohio, established for children with serious illnesses.

“We are very happy to be back in Englishtown for this incredible trucking extravaganza,” said Jim Heil, PPG commercial business development manager. “We love taking part in an event of this caliber. Truck fans always want information they can use, and we’re delighted to show them what PPG’s high-quality coatings products can do. Equally important, we again have the opportunity to raise money for Flying Horse Farms—a worthy and important charitable organization. Anybody who loves trucks and cares about kids should come out and see us.”

PPG offers a full range of coating technologies for the commercial transportation and light industrial markets, including polyurethanes, alkyds, epoxies, polyurea, waterborne, pretreatment chemicals and powder coatings. PPG coatings products are marketed under several brand names including Delfleet Evolution, DELFLEET ESSENTIAL®, Commercial Performance Coatings and AMERCOAT®.
