Expert in Plastics Industry, Technical Marketing, Prototype Manufacturing, Plastics Technology & Market
Expert V. Expert has extensive technical marketing plastic industry business experience from R&D product development, through manufacturing, to marketing and sales, having worked for Northrop Grumman, Owens-Illinois/Graham, DuPont/Conoco, Celanese/Ticona, and Borg Warner/G.E. Plastics/Polysar. He has written extensively, developed numerous patents within the polymer related industries, is a participating member of many trade and industry groups, such as SPE, SPI, PIA, CPPIA and SAMPE(technical development; prototype manufacturing).
He received BS in Chemistry from Boston College, MBA at Northeastern University, M.S. Plastics Engineering/M.S. Polymer Chemistry/M.S. Chemical Engineering from University of Massachusetts Lowell, and Ph.D. Business Administration at University of California, Berkeley.
In quick summary, over a 40+ year career I have been directly involved in the publication of 30 plastics books, among a myriad of other publication types (other books/encyclopedias, SPE molding division newsletters, twenty-one diversified, original, University of Massachusetts Lowell plastic seminar modules, etc.)—with an enlarged online article (150+), webinar (50+), newsletter (5+ series), and proprietary report (50+) presence over the last decade, I have continued to geometrically accelerate into a global plastics audience. I have also remained a dedicated plastics product and market developer from a global resin supplier’s focus—DuPont, Celanese, Borg-Warner, Polysar and a manufacturing standpoint-Grumman Aerospace, Owens-Illinois, Norton (1st LCP—liquid crystal polymer development/ commercialization—the most profitable core high or ultra-performance polymer on an economic profit margin basis, PEEK/PPS/PEI/PPA/fluoropolymer compounds; production plant trial blow molded the first PET bottle; new static dissipative testing methodologies with eventual ABS alloy commercialization; developed and commercialized the first polylactic acid biopolymers for disposable packaging drink cups which Cargill eventually acquires; numerous aerospace/defense parts—the most recent UAV drone fuel cell packs, lightning strike structures, DARPA ballistics components, etc.; inherently conductive polymer alloys for E/E use; Olympic luge and bobsled and America’s Cup composite parts; greenbuilding LEED/ARPA, shale oil piping, and alternative energy (wind, solar, wave/tidal, fuel cell) plastic applications; a number of proprietary specialty resin-additive-compound developments—super tough acetals/nylons, nylon/polycarbonate/polybutylene terephthalate blends & alloys, long glass fiber/thermoplastic composites, branched and engineered PETs, antistatic epichlorohydrins, fully cured TPVs, clean thermosets, biocomposites, thermally conductive, bearing/wear, for example; and etc.). I am quite active with the product development, consulting, and publication ...
