Mining facilities and equipment advanced coatings and protection

Meeting the challenges of the Mining industry

The environmental conditions found in surface mining, underground mining, dredging and in-situ mining are some of the most extreme and require fit-for-purpose products and services that can meet the challenge.

Our advanced coatings are designed to protect and extend the operational life of mining facilities and equipment. They are extremely durable, resistant to chemicals and designed to withstand long-term impact and abrasive damage. They are effective at reducing required service intervals, thereby preventing unplanned maintenance shutdowns while delivering improved productivity.

PPG’s expertise in the design and manufacture of specialist coatings for the mining industry has been built on decades of international investment in research and development. This status is reflected in the many long-term customers who continue to choose PPG as their preferred supplier.

Because mining conditions change depending on the prevailing geology, we also understand that regional familiarity with the specific issues faced by an individual mine is vital if customers are to be supported and serviced effectively.

This fit-for-purpose approach to both product and service is one of PPG’s key strengths.

In-depth experience across the globe

Our understanding of the mining industry is illustrated by an extensive track record and case histories in Africa, Asia Pacific, the Americas and Europe. Long-term collaboration in countries with considerable mining operations, such as Canada, Russia, South Africa, Australia and Peru has given us valuable insight and awareness of local needs.

Over the years, we have invested in significant local resources to ensure that our customers’ projects, whatever the complexity, are fully supported.
