PPG Case Study: New LEED-Certified Eddyfi Technologies World HQ Building in Quebec City
Designed by Quebec City neighbor Coarchitecture, the new Eddyfi Technologies’ world headquarters building is a model of contemporary architecture, biophilic design, and sustainable materials – from the generous application of locally sourced wood and use of large, triple-glazed windows, to the selection of solvent-free PPG Coraflon coatings to protect and embellish its muted aluminum cladding. The perforated metal wall that envelopes most of the building’s second floor is finished with three custom colors formulated specifically for the project by PPG. Richard LeBlanc, VP of Anacolor, said PPG Coraflon powder coatings were specified to help the building achieve LEED v4 certification. Anacolor is a long-time member of the PPG CERTIFIED APPLICATOR PROGRAM (CAP). Based on a fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) resin, PPG Coraflon powder coatings incorporate proprietary PPG formulations that have enabled PPG Duranar liquid coatings to protect landmark buildings for more than 50 years.
