Outdoor and mountain riding have become popular and damage by stone chips has increased; repairing a damaged frame is difficult. The problem inspired Y.S. and cost 2 years of effort to merge new polyurethane and epoxy resin from Germany for the first Self-Recovery paint (SRP) in the bicycle industry. If the frame with SRP is damaged and the spot does not break deeply, heating spot by boiled water or hair dryer can make the spot slowly rebound. Higher temperature and less damage have shorter recover time and better results. At last, imported materials have passed RoHS, REACH, EN-71, and California Prop.65 chemical content regulations, making paint reliable and safe.
