PPG Industries’ fiber glass business recently added three experienced researchers to its new product development and technology team.

“Dedication to delivering high quality products and keeping our innovation pipeline filled is of utmost importance to us,” said Paul Westbrook, director of science and technology for PPG Fiber Glass. “It’s crucial to PPG’s customers that our technology creates value in the marketplace. We excel at meeting our customers’ needs for product performance, industry knowledge and technical support.”

The new PPG scientists are:

• Brad Busche, who has been named senior research engineer for North America.

Busche earned a Bachelor of Science in ceramic engineering with an emphasis in chemistry from the University of Washington in Seattle and master’s and doctoral degrees in material science engineering from North Carolina University.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Michigan, a master’s in apparel, textiles and merchandising from Eastern Michigan University, and a doctorate in polymer fiber science from Clemson University.
• Rochelle Bradford, who has been appointed research and development product chemist to help develop improved materials for structural composites in the energy and infrastructure markets. Her professional experience is in textile, coatings and personal care applications. Bradford earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Bucknell University and a doctorate in organic chemistry with a minor in polymer chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
