PPG at Inland Marine Expo (IMX) Inland Marine Expo (IMX)

PPG is exhibiting at the Inland Marine Expo on May 20-22, 2019.

The Inland Marine Expo (IMX) is the annual trade show for the inland and intracoastal commercial marine industry in the US. The Dome at America's Centre in Saint Louis, Missouri offers an impressive venue for IMX 2019 with over 145,000 square feet of exhibition space.

As a sustainable and safe mode of transport, inland shipping has a very favorable energy efficiency profile and presents considerable growth potential. The US inland marine transportation industry is currently composed of more than 25,000 barges, 3,700 towboats and tugs and 12,000 miles of waterways with docks, fleets and repair facilities. It is the largest (by vessel), most active (by number of vessels built) and most diverse sector of the US commercial marine industry.

The long service lifetime of inland marine vessels means that it is vital to perform well-planned maintenance with coatings that have been specifically designed for these operating conditions.

PPG is one of the market leaders with an extensive track record in both maintenance and new-build projects. Our innovative and durable coatings increase the operational efficiency of inland vessels through fuel savings, resulting in a reduction in GHG emissions. This, combined with our biocide-free technology, helps vessel owners and operators to meet both economical and environmental targets.

Visit the PPG team at Booth #144 to learn more about our industry-leading range of inland marine coatings, including the PPG SIGMAGLIDE fouling release series.
