    Dan G. Marginean

    Polymer Chemist
    R & D Polymer Lab, Electron Beam Technologies Inc.



    The scope of this presentation is to emphasize the importance of Electron Beam Crosslinking, an advanced technology of the future as stated about our company by the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory publication “Accelerators for America’s Future”. We produce crosslinked polymeric systems by means of environmentally friendly processes. No byproducts are released and the low-heat products coming out of the Electron Beam Accelerator are easy to handle by operators, easy to store and preserve, as well as easy to transport worldwide. The presentation will include: (1) a Short History of Electron Beaming Technology, (2) Beaming Principles, (3) the Crosslinking Project, and (4) Crosslinking Calculations. Our company promotes this technology to help other companies and end-users prosper while using an environmentally friendly technology. Our goal is to provide value-added solutions to our customers’ wire, cable, tubing and accessory needs. Our team promotes a safe, quality driven, efficient and globally responsible work environment.

    Mr. Dan Marginean is a Polymer Chemist in the R&D Polymer Lab at Electron Beam Technologies Inc (Kankakee, ILK). He is responsible for chlorinated polyethylene (CPE)-based formulations for welding cables as well as Quality Control of the company’s Production Compounding and Extrusion and Regulatory Compliance (RoHS, REACH) initiatives.

    Previously, he held various positions in industry. He was a Senior Formulation Scientist/Process Engineer at MonoSol RX LLC (Portage, IN) where he worked on polymers for film formulation and fusion for the administration of controlled substances via the buccal/sublingual route. Dan was also the owner/senior consultant on engineering design and processing/polymers engineering, performed work on quenched epoxy system molding, and created a prototype for gas purification in coal power plants by using an electrostatic precipitator fiber glass demisters system. In other service, he presided at UW-Madison’s Annual Chemical Engineering Student Paper Competition, and he has provided consultation work to pharmaceutical companies on strips/patches for the delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API).

    Dan received his degrees in Romania, namely, a BS in Inorganic Chemical Engineering from the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University and a Masters degree under the Ministry of Chemistry. He has taken graduate coursework in colloidal and free radical chemistry at UW-Milwaukee and has done post-university studies on polymers at Lehigh University, Virginia Tech, UW-Madison, McMaster University, and the University of Southern Mississippi. He earned a Green Belt in the Six Sigma Certification program and has served as Chair of the AIChE Wisconsin Section.
