PPG launches Audioguard acoustical coatings.

PPG Commercial Coatings has introduced Audioguard, a waterborne, spray-applied coating that provides vibration dampening and reduces vehicle noise. Recipient of the PACE Award for Supplier Product and Process Innovation, Audioguard offers commercial OEM body builders a solution for structural vibration and noise reduction in cabs, under hoods, inside wheel wells and on interior panels.

"Audioguard is made of a proprietary combination of laminar, fiber and resin that hardens into a tough coating material," said Dave Chapman, marketing director, PPG Commercial Coatings. "Because it's waterborne, it's a zeroVOC product and a very ecologically sound way to address vehicle noise and vibration issues."

According to Chapman, Audioguard is particularly suited for fire and emergency equipment applications, as it reduces siren and road noise and provides patients and EMTs with a lowerdecibel interior environment. It is also effective in numerous other noise and vibration reduction applications. Audioguard can be applied by spraying onto exposed surfaces and into restricted areas by spray wands.
