Nov 30 (Reuters) - PPG Industries Inc's (PPG.N: Cotización) said the acquisitions made in 2006 will deliver full-year 2007 sales of about $750 million with year-to-date margins in the high single-digit percentages.

The paint and coatings maker also indicated that its pending acquisition of SigmaKalon Group, in Uithoorn, Netherlands, may be dilutive to earnings in 2008.

On full-year pro-forma projections, PPG expects more than 80 percent of its sales will be comprised of coatings and optical and specialty materials. (Reporting by Manish Gupta in Bangalore; Editing by Pratish Narayanan)
