David Statler joined MATRIC after receiving his PhD in Chemical Engineering from West Virginia University. For his dissertation, he investigated the recyclability of flame-retarded polycarbonate to be reused in electrical equipment housings. He evaluated numerous physical and polymer properties to obtain quantitative results. He also participated in studies to more clearly define the degradation mechanism of a non-halogenated flame retardant used in polycarbonate.
MATRIC President & CEO, Steve Hedrick, delivered remarks at the West Virginia Manufacturers Association’s Manufacturing Leadership Summit on June 9, 2014, in Daniels, W.Va. More than 400 people attended the summit, which is designed to inform the public about important events and issues that manufacturers face.
