PPG Industries Inc. (NYSE:PPG) is slated to showcase its PPG Teslin substrate for label converters, adhesive coaters and packaging specialists during Labelexpo Europe 2019, from Sep 24-27 in Brussels, Belgium.

Teslin substrate is a secure, durable and easy-to-print synthetic material, which is ideal for applications that requires a high-performance, tough label solution. It contains micropores that absorb toners, inks, coatings as well as adhesives and lock them into its structure for long-lasting security and durability at no additional expenses or processing.

The company said that these unique features make the substrate ideal for applications that requires printed data to remain on labels, including tamper-evident security, brand protection as well as pharmaceutical and in-mold applications.

The substrate can be also used in the chemicals industry for labels compliant with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and British Standard 5609.

Moreover, it is compatible with a wide array of print technologies applications such as digital inkjet, laser and thermal transfer, flexographic and offset. The static-dissipative feature of Teslin substrate helps to minimize static buildup during digital printing. This helps to improve throughput and print quality.

Shares of PPG Industries have inched up 0.9% in the past year against the 42.1% decline of the industry.

The company expects industry demand for several of its businesses to remain sluggish in the third quarter. It is focused on recovering operating margins and expects the momentum to continue as it works with customers and suppliers to offset the impact of raw material cost inflation.

The company expects third-quarter EPS in the range of $1.57-$1.67. It also reaffirmed 2019 adjusted EPS growth in the range of 7-10% and envisions sales growth of a low-single-digit percentage for the full year, both excluding currency translation impacts.

The company continues to manage costs amid a challenging business environment. It delivered nearly $20 million of cost savings in the second quarter. PPG Industries is also committed in its cash deployment to boost shareholders’ value in the long term.
