This
senior project is an educational case study on the material science of bicycle
wheels, frame, components and helmets.
The idea of this bicycle material
selection case study is to increase the knowledge of the reader of the case
study, as well as the author. We will involve physical aspects of materials
(structure, properties, etc.), by educational literature survey, discussions,
application analysis, and material selection. This core study will be done in a
general way by completing three informative tables. One table will present
material properties requirements for the selected materials commonly used

AUTOMOTIVE COATINGS – PPG – Paints, Coatings and Materials

Global Industries

PPG Industries knows automotive color.

For more than 80 years, PPG has been on the forefront of automotive coatings innovation. PPG combines its extensive knowledge of coatings and special effects technologies with analysis of industry trends to aid automakers around the world in enhancing the image and identity of their vehicle brands.

Automotive OEM Coatings

PPG has produced several innovative technologies that have streamlined the traditional automotive paint process. Called the Compact Paint Systems or Compact Paint Processes, they generate substantial savings in capital and operating costs.

These technologies will enable you to reduce your manufacturing footprint and capital investment, which would in turn lower your energy consumption and increase your efficiency. Allowing you to produce beautiful, showroom-appealing cars at a lower total cost.
