Founding Member and Chief Technical Officer of Corrosion Exchange, inventor, and past CEO, Chairman of the Board and Chief Technical Officer of companies and relationships formed to eliminate corrosion. The objective is to reshape and redefine the corrosion-prevention industries by ensuring technologies used are the leading solution for substrate preparation and protection.
Over 40 years experience in corrosion control, 33 years in coatings inspection and consulting, (NACE International CIP Certified #207). Inventor of corrosion control processes and products since 1985 and has received multiple patents. Several of these patents deal with the removal of water-soluble and non-water soluble ionic contaminants which included removal of microbial by product contaminants to retard the corrosive process.
Has worked in corrosion control relating to quality, material selection, specification writing, surface preparation, and liquid coatings application procedures for immersion services. Representative clients include Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, Flint Hills Resources, BP, Amerada Hess, Merit Energy Company, Devon Energy, Chevron USA, Marathon Oil, Public Service Company of New Mexico, Sinclair Oil Refinery, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, OxyChem, Equistar, Valspar, Petrologistics (PL Propylene
LLC), Baker Hughes, Valero, Shell, Freeport-McMoRan, Dow, EcoPetrol, Enbridge Pipeline and Citgo.
2018: Inventor of a patent pending metal cleaning technology process to remove corrosion reaction
sites on metal surfaces with WAB (wet abrasive blasting) technologies allowing a receptive
surface for protective coatings.
2018: Inventor of a patented metal cleaning technology process to remove corrosion reaction sites on
metal surfaces allowing a receptive surface for protective coatings.
2012: Inventor of a decontamination process to remove “non-visible, non-water-soluble contaminants
affecting corrosion protection” from the surface of a base material before the application of
protective coatings, paint, plastic, cladding, or other coating materials.
2010: Made the initial discovery to eliminate the corrosion mechanism on metal substrates.
2002: Inventor of a new patent-pending type of coating material to inhibit corrosion processes and
mitigate microbial growth in the void spaces of marine vessels and other structures with limited
access, where conventional methods of surface preparation and the application of typical
coating materials cannot be effectively utilized.
12/93: Recipient of the 1993 Chemical Industry’s Vaaler Award for Best New Technology in Corrosion
08/92: Filed for patent on a method of achieving “Zero-detectable” soluble salt contamination on steel
07/94: Granted by the U.S. Patent Office the first patent on a method of achieving
“Zero-detectable” soluble salt contamination on steel substrates.
12/94: Given an allowance by
the U.S. Patent Office to include concrete substrates in the original patent.
04/95: Given an
allowance by the U.S. Patent Office to include all metals in the original patent.
04/85 Received my NACE CIP #207
