PPG research helps vehicle, plane makers cut pounds from products

Every pound counts these days for car and airplane makers, and researchers at PPG Industries Inc. are working to help them achieve weight-savings goals.

Aircraft windshields made of PPG's transparent plastic are 66 pounds lighter per square foot than glass, said Ed Rakiewicz, a 17-year PPG researcher and associate director of aerospace research. PPG's lightweight sealants can reduce an airplane's weight by 1,400 pounds, and using the company's electrocoated parts instead of paint can reduce a wide-body aircraft's weight by 650 pounds, he said.
