Distinguished industry expert and Durability + Design contributor Steven Reinstadtler has been elected to lead the Polyurea Development Association for the next year.

Reinstadtler, industrial marketing manager of the Coatings for Construction division of Bayer MaterialScience LLC, began his one-year term last week during PDA's annual conference in Las Vegas.

Reinstadtler has been a member of PDA for 12 years, including two years as a member of the board of directors.

Steven Reinstadtler says he will focus on growth, education and "downstream members" in leading the Polyurea Development Association.

Reinstadtler is a regular contributor to Durability + Design Magazine. His recent articles include "Framing Architectural Polyurethane Coatings" and "When 'Good Enough' Suddenly Won't Cut It: Commercial Coatings Technology Faces Challenges in the Healthcare Environment."

In addition, he was named last year to JPCL's Top Thinkers: The Clive Hare Honors, which recognized 24 thought leaders who have advanced the technology of protective and marine coatings in the past decade.

Goals for Growth

"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," Reinstadtler said in a press release announcing his appointment.

"I also intend to be more inclusive of downstream members, such as applicators, contractors and facility owners," he said.

Reinstadtler is interested in growing and broadening the association, and his experience at Bayer with polyaspartic and polyurethane elastomer chemistry will be helpful, PDA said.

PDA is dedicated to the pure polyurea industry but also welcomes adjacent thick-film elastomers, the association said.

PDA's mission is to promote the advancement of high-performance elastomeric technologies.

According to Reinstadtler, this aligns with PDA's mission statement: "To promote strong market growth and advancement of high-performance elastomeric technologies for the betterment of protective coatings, caulks, adhesives and sealants through the development of educational and marketing programs, technical standards, safety and environmental guidelines, and proper use recommendations."

20+ Years of Experience

Reinstadtler started his career with Bayer in 1989 after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. in chemistry. His current position focuses on understanding "the unmet needs of high-performance coatings" in the construction, infrastructure, architectural and built environments. Reinstadtler has a technical and marketing background in both polyurea and polyurethane hybrid thick-film coatings.

In addition to his work with PDA, Reinstadtler is active in SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings, the American Coatings Association (ACA), and the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI).
