Welcome to my personal site.
I'm Herwig Juster. Thanks for visiting my site.
I'm a polymer engineer, blogger, author, and explorer.
Currently, I work at PlastFormance. Here, my main focus is supporting the automotive, LED and E/E industry to select the optimal highly filled compound for applications which need high thermal conductivity or electrical conductivity, as well as other properties such as radiation shielding.
I hold a Ph.D. in polymer engineering respectively polymer injection moulding from the Johannes Kepler University (Austria) and a master and bachelor in polymer engineering and science from the University of Leoben (Austria). My engineering education is complemented by a master in Industrial Management and Business Administration (IMBA) also from the University of Leoben (Austria).
"There are no limits to what science can explore. " - Ernest Solvay
"Without Natural Polymers, There is No Life; Without Synthetic Polymers, No Standard of Living" - Prof. Dr. Hans Uwe Schenck
My professional core competencies are:
Application of high performance polymers:
Amorphous: PC, PSU, PESU, PPSU, PEI, PAI
Semi-crystalline: aliphatic and semi-aromatic Nylons (PA 6, PA 6.6, PARA, PPA), PPS, PPE, PEEK, PAEK, Fluoropolymers (PTFE, PFA/MFA, PVDF),
Fluids: PFPE and Elastomers: FKM and FFKM
Bio-based and recycled materials
Polymer material selection (technical requirements analysis and specification, material price evaluation, direct coordination with Tier-1 and OEM engineering teams in Automotive)
Material development (highly filled plastic compounds)
Data analytic solutions for the Plastics and Processing Industry
Metal-to-Plastic and Plastic-to-Plastic replacements
Processing and application technology assistance (with focus on injection moulding)
Business development generation (marketing, market assessment, new projects and material identification, and new customers prospecting)
Technical Market Development and Market Intelligence for Polymers
Now that you know a little about me, I’d like to know: how can I help you? If you want to put plastics to work for your business, we should talk.
