pDCPD Molding Gets Boost at Osborne Industries

July 09, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
OSBORNE, KS pDCPD specialist Dr. Jason L. Moore has taken on the position of plastics project scientist at Osborne Industries Inc.

The timing for the new position was based on increased demand for pDCPD parts and Osborne's ability to secure a steady supply of the material, a company spokeswoman said.

She attributed the popularity of pDCPD molding to the material's corrosion resistance and great impact resistance. Furthermore, pDCPD molding isn't as labor intensive as other molding methods, making it a cost-effective choice. And the resulting parts are paintable, the spokeswoman said.

Dr. Moore holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Oklahoma as well as bachelors and masters degrees in chemistry from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.

His past positions include research chemist with Advanced Polymer Technologies and director of research with Cymetech LLC, a joint venture between Advanced Polymer Technologies and the Performance Materials Division of BFGoodrich.

Dr. Moore has extensive knowledge and experience in transition metal catalyst synthesis and molding of dicyclopentadiene resin systems. He is the co-author of seven peer-reviewed publications and is co-inventor with Dr. Robert H. Grubbs (2005 Chemistry Nobel Prize Laureate) on four patents.
