Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

COATINGS; COATING METHODS; WEB COATING PROCESS. Expert has concentrated his technical activity on the development of coatings for application to flexible webs to meet a variety of needs. This involves choosing the chemistry necessary for the task, and formulating the chemicals (polymers, solvents, pigments, curatives, etc.) into a stable coating fluid that can be applied by a coating machine. Test methods to evaluate new materials and processes have been developed as needed. Other areas where Expert has worked include barrier coats, slip coats, urethanes, vinyls, acrylics, photographic negatives and positives, laminates, adhesives, and magnetics. Coating methods that he is familiar with include flexo, gravure, extrusion and roll coating.

CURING METHODS; ELECTRON-BEAM POLYMER CURING; ULTRAVIOLET POLYMER CURING. Expert is adept in curing methods, namely epoxy, isocyanates, and radiation (ultraviolet and electron beam curing).

PIGMENT DISPERSION. Expert's expertise includes pigment dispersion, including both magnetic and colors.

MONOMERIC MIXTURES. Expert was instrumental in inventing a monomeric mixture, which, upon radiation curing, duplicated the properties of a then-used polluting solvent coating (patent pending). He replaced unavailable tin-plated steel with cheaper aluminum by developing a patented conductive laminating adhesive for batteries. He also improved abrasion resistance of magnetic coatings by thermal and radiation methods, to a point where they are considered the industry standard.
