Las Vegas, Nevada - Steven Reinstadtler, industrial marketing manager, coatings for construction, Bayer MaterialScience LLC, has been elected president of the Polyurea Development Association (PDA).
He officially began his one-year term during the association's annual conference, held 15-17 April in Las Vegas, BMS said in a 17 April news release.
"As PDA President, I intend to implement strategic growth and education plans developed by the board of directors at our strategic planning workshop last June. I also intend to be more inclusive of downstream members, such as applicators, contractors and facility owners," said Reinstadtler, who has been a member of the PDA for 12 years, including two years as a member of the board of directors.
PDA is dedicated to the pure polyurea industry, but also welcomes adjacent thick-film elastomeric technologies. Reinstadtler said he is interested in growing and broadening the association, and noted that his experience working with polyaspartic and polyurethane elastomer chemistry at Bayer will be helpful as he works to achieve this goal.
