Gerald Mccomas

Areas Gerald Mccomas is Knowledgeable in:

Production issues: online contamination, inprocess product stability.

Chemistries: Acrylics, Polyurethanes, 1K and 2K epoxies, UV curables, Heat resistant products.

Application equipment: spray, HVLP, airless, needle dispense.

Material Science selection.

Techniques Gerald Mccomas Uses:

I commonly use statistical designs to select the best formulation components for the project.

I then use a DOE to optimize the formulation and application conditions so that the product meets the customer specifications.

Gerald Mccomas's Problem Solving Skills:

  1. Material selection depending on performance and environmental impact

Gerald Mccomas's Problem Solving Experience:

  1. Besides developing several patented products, I have designed products that had a lower applied cost, as well as products that required special application needs, for example, a substrate that couldn't tolerate the standard cure temperature of the product, or was sensitive to the solvents that were typically in that product.

    I also developed a 2K urethane coating, that saved the customer millions in retooling, because it eliminated the primer station, and reduced the cure cycle by 75%.
