Thanks to its range of product offerings, you won't catch PPG Industries painting itself into a corner. Coatings -- such as paints (Pittsburgh Paints, Lucite, and Monarch), stains (Olympic), and sealants -- account for most of its sales; the remainder comes from glass and specialty materials. PPG's glass offerings include flat glass for buildings, fabricated glass, and continuous-strand fiberglass used in aircraft and buildings. The company also makes optical products. In 2013 PPG spun off its commodity chemicals business and merged it with Georgia Gulf in a deal valued at $2.1 billion.
