§ Career Profile
S. Pooyan Sajjadi is an organized, passionate and hardworking Senior Polymer Engineer with great communication skills and extra-ordinary computer abilities. Former member of National Editing Committee for writing Iranian National Standards is a contributor to various technical journals as columnist and editor. Years upon years’ experience in Polymer industry has also enabled him to be a technical adviser on material selection, material / design evaluation, technical trouble-shooting, failure analysis/solving problems, plastics specification and expert witness (patent).
He is an expert in the following fields;
· Polymers Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Rheology
· Plastic Extrusion; Poly Olefines in Particular (PE & PP)
· Coatings Synthesis and Modification; specially Poly Acrylics
· Nano Material; namely UV-absorber Nano additives
§ Scientific Expertise
I started my education in Polymers with BSc in Polymer Engineering in AmirKabir University in 2001, where I studied various topics on Polymer science and engineering. Moreover, I gained precious working experience in industry as an Internship student and as an Industrial trainee where I worked on physical and mechanical properties of car coatings and Nano materials respectively. This was followed by working as a part-time researcher in Iranian petroleum Research and Technology Co. in 2006.
Having decided to deepen my knowledge on polymers; I continued my higher education in a master by research study in Polymer science joint board in Germany a year later in 2007. I performed my master thesis in the Technical university of Berlin, where I worked on state-of-art polymer processing ads and the topic was “Impact of die materials on the effect of new polymer processing aids for sharkskin properties”. My supervisor was Prof Dr M. H. Wagner who was the President of the German Society of Rheology 1991-2003, and he is Secretary of the European Society of Rheology since 1996.
I developed my knowledge on the synthesis of various resins on lab and pilot level in Resitan Co. P.L.C from 2009 to 2011, and successfully synthesised water based Poly Acrylic resin and then mastered formulating a paint system with that resins, including the use of many additives in that formulation. Later on in late 2011, I exploited my Master degree thesis scientific knowledge by working as a senior polymer engineer in Gostaresh Plastic Co. on Poly Ethylene (PE) extrusion and using various additives in the process. In fact, that was the subject of my MSc thesis in Technical University of Berlin which was thoroughly studied scientifically, and practised on large industrial scale.
I have spent year 2013 in Australia on finishing and publishing my book on “Additives in Water-Borne Coatings”, while simultaneously I worked as a technical consult for NuFurn Commercial Furniture Co and Epoxy FLooring Sydney. from June to October 2013 on troubleshooting their injection line and publishing a series of patents on Poly Propylene/Poly Ethylene core-shell system. As of now, I have been able to develop versatile knowledge on various aspects of polymer science; few are listed as follow:
Physical chemistry of polymers
Rheology of polymers
Poly Ethylene extrusion process
Poly Ethylene extrusion additives
Colour Matching for Acrylonitrile
-butadiene styrene (ABS)
Coatings Synthesis and Modification
Water based Poly Acrylic resin synthesis
Water based Poly Acrylic resin additives
Water based Poly Acrylic Paint formulation
Poly Urea resin synthesis
Solvent based Poly Ester resin synthesis
Stone-chipping property for car coatings
Anti-UV Nano additives for coating systems
