Joe Webster is President of Stabilization Technologies LLC, a company located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Stabilization Technologies is a provider of contract analytical, product design and problem solving services for the plastics and coatings industries. Stabilization Technologies LLC is an international company with clients in China, India, Europe, Canada, Latin America and the United States.. Webster’s career has included positions in Sales, Technical Service, Research and Development, Product Development, Polymerization and Synthesis, Catalysts, Polymer Engineering, Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, Degradable Polymers, Gamma Radiation Resistant Polymers, Supramolecular Chemistry, Molecular Modeling, Plasmonics and Photonics, Laser Protection, and much more.
American Chemical Society Award in Industrial Innovation and Molecular Recognition
Mr. Webster’s career has included positions in Sales, Technical Service, Patents, Technical Marketing, Product Development, Lab Management, Research and Development and Analytical Support. He has worked for Wheaton Plastics, Shell Development, American Cyanamid (now Cytec Industries), Sandoz Chemicals (now Clariant Corporation).
His academic and professional achievements include substantial IP matter and publications over the last 35 plus years in the area of polymer science. He is the recipient of the American Chemical Societies Innovation Award in Industrial Chemistry for the SW United States in 2002 for his work in Molecular Modifiers™ and supramolecular Chemistry of condensation polymers.
His recent accomplishments include the development of new molecular modifiers for polyolefins, styrenics, and condensation polymers. Other developments include a high solids ballistic injection molded projectile for the military, OMPF pigment fillers, microwave and infrared absorbers, and solutions for the adverse affects of nano fillers on polyolefins. More recent developments are in the stabilization of essential oils and heat or light sensitive additives including colorants for plastics.
In the last five years, he has received numerous patents in the fields of molecular modifiers, fillers and additive stabilizer systems for condensation polymers. Another revolutionary product is sulfur black which allows for polyolefin stability beyond that attainable using conventional stabilizers and carbon black. This last product is of particular interest for under-the-hood automotive parts. Most recently, Joe Webster won an Innocentive Open Innovation Challenge related to odor reduction in plastics.
