B) Dudley J.
Mr. Dudley J. Primeaux was born
in Dec 3, 1959, received an M.S. Degree in Organic
Chemistry from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas
in 1984. He then joined Texaco Chemical Company
-Austin Research Labs where he was involved in the
development of rigid and flexible polyurethane foam
systems and applications. It was under this area
where he developed and first demonstrated the 100 %
solids polyurea spray elastomer technology. In 1987
he joined the Performance Polymers Group where he
has been involved in polyurea RIM and spray
elastomer development and applications development
of amine catalyst in polyurethane foam systems.
1994, Dudley became part of Huntsman Corporation
following the sale of Texaco Chemical Company. Here,
he was a Research Chemist in the Thermoset
Applications Group devoting his efforts to marketing
and applications development of the polyurea spray
In June 1998, Dudley was invited by Prof. Weibo
Huang and visited Qingdao. Under his presentation
and instruction, Prof. Huang leads his fellows to
make R&D of spray polyurea in CHINA. In October
1998, he became Managing Partner / Chief Chemist
with EnviroChem Technologies. Dudley was responsible
for all formulation development for the EnviroLastic®
polyurea product line and marketing of those systems
and applications. He also interacted with the
Certified Contractor Network on products and
application techniques. Application equipment setup,
training and servicing also fell under his
November 2000, Dudley left the association with
EnviroChem Technologies to pursue a personal
consulting business, Primeaux Associates LLC. This
work relates to the polyurea industry, equipment,
application and training. He is currently working
with a variety of companies throughout the world.
Dudley is active in the National Association of
Corrosion Engineers (NACE), SSPC: The Society for
Protective Coatings and President of the Polyurea
Development Association (PDA). He is named inventor
of 23 US Patents and 6 European Patents on
polyurethane and polyurea foam applications as well
as polyurea spray elastomer systems/applications. He
also has 27 technical publications on the polyurea
elastomer technology. He was recognized as a
Protective Coatings Specialist by SSPC in 2006.
