PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh’s PPG Industries says it is buying a Massachusetts firm that makes specialty paints and coatings for military and other uses, and its central Pennsylvania subsidiary.

PPG isn’t disclosing terms of the deal to buy Cuming Microwave Corp., of Avon, Massachusetts, and Cuming-Lehman Chambers Inc. of Chambersburg.

Cuming Microwave makes coatings that absorb microwave and radio waves - including radar - that can be used on military aircraft, medical, automotive and high-tech communications equipment.

Cuming Microwave has about 160 employees at three plants in Massachusetts, and maintains an office in Chambersburg, too.

PPG says it expects to close the deal in the third quarter of this year.
