OSHKOSH, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that it will be participating in the first-ever virtual Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Spirit of Aviation Week™, July 21-25.

The five-day event will include streamed and on-demand content that encompasses nearly every subset of aviation, with a focus on educational, informational and entertaining content.

The virtual PPG booth will feature an array of products that are suitable for aviation special interest groups, including color coatings, transparency cleaning systems, rain repellant coatings and various paint systems – from pretreatments to topcoats.

PPG will highlight its PPG CLARITY™ Transparency Cleaning System, which is a two-part cleaning method that can easily remove debris, especially insect residue, from coated and uncoated plastic transparencies. Also featured will be PPG SURFACE SEAL™ hydrophobic coating, which is an industry-leading rain/water-shedding coating system designed for glass and anti-static coated glass windshields.
