Thanks to its diversified 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, chemicals, and specialty materials. PPG's glass offerings include flat glass for buildings, fabricated glass, and continuous-strand fiberglass used in aircraft and buildings. Its chemicals segment makes chlor-alkali chemicals, and the specialty materials unit provides silica products. The company also makes optical products like Transitions-brand lenses.
