Coatings Expert Brown Wins Rohm and Haas Honor
The honor is only the third awarded by Rohm and Haas in the company's 94-year history.
Rohm and Haas said Brown is regarded as an expert in emulsion polymerization, and has invented or played a role in the development of a number of products used in paints and specialty coatings. He joined the company in 1964 as a chemist in the Paper, Textile and Nonwovens business, and in 1969 moved to the coatings area to focus on new metal-protection Nonwovens. Brown has held a series of technical and management positions in coatings-related research, and in 1999 was appointed chief scientist for the Performance Polymers business.
