Essentially, to this point, I had solely developed all the products that both companies have for sale and used in their applications. I had set-up the company for manufacture of the chemical products and for the use/storage and disposal of their hazardous chemical wastes.

I had performed the following jobs and responsibilities:

Directed & managed research and development programs and projects with 

full responsibity for the development and complete characterization of         

products for both Poly-Granite International Inc. and Marine Fenders Internal

companies

Specified in collaboration with the engineer the requirements for the

manufacturing equipment (reactors/mixing tanks as to size, make,

capability and location) and raw material/product pipeline

Specified the manufacturing processes and quality control procedures and

test measures

Responsible for the scale-up of products from the laboratory to production

Responsible for overseeing manufacturing as to production schedule and

raw material availability

Managed raw material specification, procurement & inventory

Managed toxic and hazardous waste disposal

Managed the environmental reporting to local and federal regulatory

commissions

Wrote the Material Safety and Technical Data, Project (Status/Completion)

Reports

Collaborated work with Sales, Engineering, Office personnel in formatting

operating procedures/document controls for the expedient and efficient

Skills

Skills

Management

We manage daily on different levels: home management, child management, financial management where we are accountable to no one but ourselves and our immediate family and on-the-job management. However, if these personal managements are carried efficiently and methods are applied well on the job scene, we become a "big time manager". I begin my good management exactly at my own realm of work at the confines of my small office starting with my everyday "TO DO" list. Then, my mangement gets extended as I need more people to complete the job. I am a very effective manager. Being a scientist, I have an eye for details and accuracy and therefore, I leave no room for errors. I deliver projects from conception to a successful product  as a result of being "focused" to start with and because of "excellent time management" and lastly but not least because of my skills in "managing people" with respect and trust.

Computer Literacy

In this age, almost none can function competitively without computer skills. I am well versed with the use of Microsoft Word, Excel, Access and Powerpoint. My reports and simple communications are of course written using Microsoft Words and molst often for reporting scientific findings, it is done in combination with Excel and Powerpoint. Access is most useful in designing my progarams in handling database. I use Powerpoint to be effective in my "Presentations".

Communication Skill

The ability to communicate either verbally or in writing is necessary especially in an organization which aims to flourish and gain the benefits of well communicated ideas. I have very good communication skills for people who are open minded and who would really like to listen. With my thoughts being well organized  and focused, most of my communications if not all (verbal or written)  on my scientific findings or on just simple messages are efficiently conveyed.

Instrumental Analyses

Instrumental analyses is necessary in characterizing and identifying a product. The mechanism of polymerization or even just the blending of molecules is verified by the results from an instrumental analyses. I have the skill in interpreting and analyzing my results on the tests performed on a product. I have an in-depth knowledge on both wet and analytical chemical analyses. The instruments that I have real good experience and familiarity with are FT-IR, UV-Vis, HPLC, GC, AA and of course simple instruments as pH meter, titrator, colorimeters and physical testers such as Tensometers, Charpy and Izod Impact Testers, Falling Ball Impact Testers, Bird Impact Tester, etc. as are normally used in the aerospace industry for more rigorous testing. I have also rigged up my own testers to quickly qualify my products for the performance I so desire for them.

Product Development

The most challenging role of a chemist is in product development. Polymer product development ,  in particular, requires an in-depth knowledge of the raw materials to start with and their properties in relation to the polymerization process. An excellent background in polymer chemistry is very much needed. I have a God-given talent in that I can visualize the building up of molecules when I put together a formulation. Where most chemists will take months and even years to develop a product, I take a fraction of that time to develop a product completely characterized.
