the coatings industry continues to evolve. To the outsider, much might look the same as it did just a decade or two ago. To the insider, industry restructuring and globalization have changed its footprint, regulations have impacted formulations, product stewardship is adding new business challenges, and technology has evolved such that products are actually different in some meaningful ways from the clean air act became law in the united states over 40 years ago. This look at how things have changed but also at how some things have remained the same, provides one observer's view of the paints and coatings industry, key participants, and the drivers that continue to shape the industry and inspire continued innovation.

Our client manufactures, markets, and sells gi endoscopy tools and accessories in the chinese and international markets.
Client is currently seeking 2 candidates that can spend up to a year based in their facilities in china, to assist the company in the manufacturing of a new medical device (in the interventional radiology space) that requires polymer chemistry and/or materials science expertise. The assignment would likely begin in q1 or q2 of 2015. Compensation package to be determined.
the candidates will be responsible for:
- developing a major project design for manufacturing of a new medical device
- developing the scale up process for biomaterial synthesis associated with this device
candidates should have a phd degree in polymer chemistry or materials
science, and have a strong interest for interdisciplinary work in the field of
medical technology. They should have experience in material
synthesis and characterization.

I'm am looking to have an organic material analyzed. This material comes from pre wwii japan. This product was used in the christmas decoration industry. I have a large market for this product if i can define the material. Thanks, pete r. Oehmen+6 Other Responses
We're looking to develop a material that we can use as a soluble support material in the fused deposition process in 3d printing.
One of the routes that surfaced is centered on the use of the same techniques used in photoresists to produce a soluble resin. There seems to be a lot work with photosensitive agents in styrene copolymers
theses positive photoresists use uv activation and an alkali solvent.
As the sensitising agents are already combined with polystyrenes i reasoned that they could also be used in higher mw styrenes that could be used in our fused deposition process. I propose we could then use a uv light bath and dissolve the activated resist in alkali solvent.
My question is, is it possible to create photo-sensitized higher mw polystyrenes? If so, we will need someone to guide us through the process in creating that ip.+15 Other Responses
