He has special expertise in developing low VOC content coatings, low VOC coatings; low temperature-cure coatings; ultra-durable compositions; and thin-film, thick-film, and conventional corrosion-resistant primers.
 
“With the launch of our new CAS-MI Innovation Center, we can utilize Ron’s vast industry experience in such market applications as automotive, coil coatings, aerospace, appliances, packaging, building and more.” says David W. Riggs, PE, president of CAS-MI Laboratories. “Our analytical and testing capabilities will be an added asset to Chemical Dynamics’ consulting offerings.”
