“After extensive testing, PPG is proud to provide the high-performing coatings for this challenging application,” said Shelley Verdun, PPG product manager, Industrial Coatings. “From pucks to skate blades, we know that the red paint on NHL goal posts takes a beating. The Envirocron Extreme Protection powder coating system, with its proprietary chip resistant technology in cold environments, will prevent chips, reduce scuffs and reduce maintenance time.”

The benefits of Envirocron Extreme Protection powder coatings include:

  • Exceptional application transfer efficiency, allowing for easy application;
  • Consistent film builds on goal post surfaces and a wide application window for ease of use;
  • Improved chip mitigation that extends the life of the coated goal posts and lowers maintenance costs at arena facilities;
  • Color matching capabilities to NHL-approved colors; and
  • Extreme impact and chip resistance at temperatures as low as minus 30 F.

“The NHL and PPG share a commitment to innovation in all realms of the game,” said Brian Jennings, NHL executive vice president and chief branding officer. Envirocron Extreme Protection powder coatings will help to reduce maintenance needs. We will look to include NHL goal frames with this product in our event properties for the coming season and will continue to explore organic ways that PPG products can be integrated into the fabric of our game and throughout NHL arenas.”
