With a total investment of 30 million US dollars, the center will support the application testing of various PPG technologies, including powders, fire protection, insulation, adhesives and sealants, surface pretreatment, and electrocoating technologies. The center adopts a modular design that enables independent projects in various technology application areas to be completed simultaneously.
