PPG Launches US Webstore For Aerospace Sealant And Adhesive Application Products

More than 130 PPG SEMCO products available with free shipping to US customers

PPG recently announced that it has launched a webstore for customers in the continental U.S. to purchase PPG SEMCO products used for aerospace sealant and adhesive applications. Orders can be placed online by credit card for more than 130 items that will be shipped for free within two business days from one of PPG’s six U.S. application support centers.

According to Jim Enochs, PPG segment manager, aerospace packaging, the Americas, “The new webstore is designed to meet the growing need for airlines and small maintenance, repair and overhaul shops to purchase products quickly to keep aircraft operational and minimize downtime. Time is critical to the profitability of commercial airlines, which lose revenue for every hour an aircraft is down for maintenance.”

Orders can be placed at www.semcopackaging.com with VISA, MASTERCARD and AMERICAN EXPRESS credit cards.

“Customers go to the Semco packaging and application systems website, find the product they want to purchase, and click the green arrow under ‘Buy Online’ in the box with the product description and part number,” said Dillon Desai, PPG segment manager, aerospace sealants, the Americas. “Once they have registered, they log on to their account and place their order. It’s that easy.”

The Semco sealant and adhesive application products available for online purchase include mixers for PPG SEMKIT packages, dispensing tools, smoothing tools, cartridges, nozzles for cartridges, plungers, removal tools, needles and industrial syringes.

“Customers still will be able to place orders through their closest application support center,” Enochs said. “We are giving them an option that may better meet their needs.”

Desai said PPG plans to expand sales to other countries and offer more products in the near future.

PPG’s global aerospace business offers coatings, sealants, transparencies, packaging and application systems, and transparent armor, as well as chemical management and other services. For more information, visit www.ppgaerospace.com.
