ATLANTA, Sept. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Imagine taking time and expense to paint or stain your deck or concrete with a product that is supposed to beautify and protect the surface, only to find after one season that the surface is cracking, peeling and deteriorating into a condition worse than before you applied it. This is exactly what plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against PPG Industries have alleged happened to them when using Olympic "Rescue It!" products.
PPG markets Olympic "Rescue It!" as a high-quality product that creates "a durable coating for wood and concrete splits and cracks up to 1/4 inch deep," providing an "ideal" protective coating for decks and concrete surfaces. It claims a "fine texture helps to hide surface imperfections" when applied to decks and concrete surfaces. Unfortunately, the Plaintiffs soon found out that these claims of durability and protection were false and that these products invariably crack and peel soon after application, causing significant damage to the surfaces on which they are applied.
The class action lawsuit, filed on September 12, 2016, seeks relief nationally for all customers who bought and applied the Olympic "Rescue It!" products to their deck and concrete surfaces and discovered that, after as little as one season, the products start peeling, cracking, and worsening the original condition of the surfaces. It alleges that PPG knew the Olympic "Rescue It!" products quickly peel, crack, and damage the surfaces on which they were applied, and despite knowing the products were defective, PPG continued to manufacture and sell the products (and still sell the products) even after receiving continued consumer complaints.
PPG is accused of breach of warranty, violating the unfair and deceptive trade practices acts of multiple states, among others.
