PPG buys AkzoNobel

I wonder if this will affect anything??? As you may know AkzoNobel makes Sikkens and Interlux products............maybe a good fit, maybe not???

Re: PPG buys AkzoNobel

PPG makes outstanding products in my experience - I'm not going to start worrying.

Coating materials are a very rapidly changing field - how long will the ultra toxic two parts even be legal?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
