March Speakers Tour – Portland Section: Omnova PLIOTEC HDT Resins for Multi-Surface Renovation Points
Mar 10 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

When:       Tuesday, March 17th

Who:       Omnova’s Latoska N. Price:

Coatings Application Manager at OMNOVA Solutions, has worked in the Coatings Industry for several years in the areas of Automotive, Industrial, Architectural and Color Science. She earned her B.S. Chemistry from University of Detroit –Mercy and an M. S. Polymer Technology from Eastern Michigan University.

What: Multi-surface renovation paints have enjoyed significant development in recent years, especially in Big Box and independent paint stores. There are growing expectations from consumers that paints be applied over a wide variety of substrates and demonstrate good adhesion and ease of use. Beyond adhesion, such renovation paints also must deliver properties such as fast hardness development, abrasion and impact resistance, as well as flexibility to allow for dimensional variations of wood in trim areas. In this presentation, we will discuss latex technology that meets these market needs

Topic/Presentation:  Using Recovered Carpet from Cali Landfill to Make Useful CASE/ACES Application Materials

Abstract:   The world is moving on and recovering and recycling or use of renewable raw materials is becoming more fashionable especially in California and Europe. A key raw material for Carpet is PET polyester. Virtually all post-consumer/industrial carpet has gone into landfill. The state of California imposes a tax on this. This presentation gives a view of past, present and future technology to recover carpet and turn it into useful CASE application raw materials. Some brief  chemistry and manufacturing as well as the recovery process is discussed. Examples of the design of various products  made from this material will be  presented.  Modification of these systems to produce hybrids is also discussed. A brief discussion will also take place on other polyurethane and epoxy chemistry products.

Bio:       Graham A. Howarth graduated with Majors in Chemistry and Material Science and Engineering and minors in Technology and mathematics. He also has a Master of  Science and Diploma in “The Corrosion of Engineering Materials” from Imperial College London and awarded student of the year prize. His thesis subject was “The design of Waterbased Epoxy and High Solids PU/Oxazolidine Coatings for corrosion protection”. He has been a guest lecturer there on the MS course. He is a Chartered Scientist, Chartered Chemist, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Technical Editor of JCT+R and a member of the Editorial Management Board. After 9 years at Akzo Nobe Coatings, 11 years at Industrial Copolymers and two years at Tetrosyl Automotive Coatings, he moved to the USA in 2000 and spent 10 years at Arnette Polymers and a year at Cornerstone Flooring and then 6 years at Dayton Superior Corporation. He now works for Arropol Chemicals in Dalton, GA. He has written numerous journal articles and given presentations and seminars around the world.
