Saint-Just-en-Chaussée is PPG’s leading automotive adhesives and sealants facility in Europe.

New manufacturing cells

The upgrades to the facility include new structural adhesives and waterborne LASD (liquid applied sound damper) manufacturing cells, improved laboratory and testing space, upgraded equipment to simulate automotive body shop conditions, and improved technical capabilities. This facility enhances the link between PPG’s R&D efforts and customer needs with integrated services and increased resources.

Recreated factory line conditions

The investment showcases the following improvements:

  • Application Centre of Development trial areas have been upgraded to recreate the factory line conditions of paint and body shops more accurately with state-of-the-art robots, sophisticated dispense systems, flow meters and regulation equipment.
  • The facility’s updated equipment reduces the number of steps between laboratory formulations and manufacturing batches before trials at customer facilities.

Rapid changes

"As the automotive industry goes through rapid changes, we’re innovating to support our clients beyond manufacturing and product development,” said Gary Danowski, PPG vice president, automotive coatings.
