That is believable. Clearly you have spent alot of time lurking around here...enough to know that I never post pictures of my companies work. I dont believe in sharing visual representations of the trade secrets that have taken me a lifetime to accumulate. You are correct, no pictures from me. Perhaps if you pm me I could send you one.

Hrmmm... from what I've seen I would venture to say that I just want people to say "yeah, that's by far the best paint you can get". To say much more would give you a good idea of where I am!

Ironically, Rohm and Haas was, at one point, wanting to make nail polish because "you can make that stuff and sell it for 6 dollar an ounce!"

I won't tell you about my invention. I will simply be able to assist you as best as I can with any of your paint questions.

Further, I want to be able to learn from you folks about what it is that makes the best paints possible.

It's kind of weird. I think, in the industry, we have an idea of what a paint is supposed to look and feel like, when it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. My personal opnion is that most traditional paints are too runny and thin. So new formulation chemists come in and try to copy those in terms of rheology (thickness, flow etc...) and never come out with anything better. This just ends up in a cycle of having the same old stuff out there with a few slight modifications.

Haha. I don't do colors is what I think you're referring to considering you are talking about tint bases. The guy across my lab bench does that.

If that's what you're not talking about then I'm sorry, but that's nomenclature that I'm not familiar with.

heh. I think gina can verify I'm legit. In fact she flew out to see me last week.

I guess I should stop posting for now until I can talk to my boss. I'm getting a kind of "natives are hostile" vibe now.

Well, sometimes around here just when you think you have seen it all...an inventor with a secret paint innovation that he cant reveal until he asks his boss. Calls himself the formulator and is not familiar with the nomenclature of paint formulas...
