PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid

and powder coatings, teams up with Ameristar Perimeter Security, a

worldwide leader in perimeter security, to feature the new 2017 paint

scheme for the No. 88 Axalta Chevrolet SS for Spring Race Weekend at

Phoenix International Raceway (PIR), on Sunday, March 19, 2017. As a

partner of Axalta, which is primary sponsor of the car in Phoenix,

Ameristar will be prominently featured on the car. Dale Earnhardt Jr.,

voted by fans as NASCAR®’s most popular driver for the 14th

consecutive season, will be behind the wheel. Earnhardt Jr. is a 26-time

Sprint Cup winner and has three career wins at PIR.

This weekend’s race will be the first to feature the new paint scheme,

which is nicknamed "Flash Point" by legendary designer Sam Bass, due to

its graphic designs along the body of the car. Axalta’s AquaEC™

electrocoat corrosion prevention coatings are used on Ameristar’s

Montage products, the leading brand of ornamental steel fences in North

America. Manufactured for strength and durability, Ameristar’s Montage

decorative fencing products rely on Axalta’s innovative corrosion

protection qualities to ensure its fences can withstand the elements and

offer a lifetime limited warranty.

“We’re excited about this new alliance between Ameristar and Axalta,”

said Barry Willingham, President of Ameristar Perimeter Security. “By

combining the capabilities of Axalta’s coatings technology with our

state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, we will be able to deliver our

customers a product quality that is unprecedented in our industry.

Ameristar’s partnership with Axalta allows for product differentiation

today, and their commitment to product innovation translates into our

future growth for tomorrow.”

In addition to Sunday’s headlining race, Ameristar will be the feature

sponsor of the No. 9 car driven by William Byron in the Xfinity race on

Saturday, March 18, 2017.

“I’m excited to have Ameristar participate in the Spring Race Weekend,

and to see their logo on the newly painted No. 88 Chevrolet SS,” said

Michael Cash, President of Industrial Coatings at Axalta. “Racing is all

about the commitment to excellence, innovation, technology and teamwork

- attributes that are key to success on the track and in business. Our

great customers, like Ameristar, demonstrate this commitment every day

and we are privileged to be able to support their goals through our

products, our services, and the ways in which we help our customers

build their businesses.”
