Welcome to the lab

Our new colleague, Dr. Peter Loh, has been supporting the laboratory team since the 9th of July 2018.

Peter is a polymer chemist and wrote his thesis in the field of physical chemistry. The areas of responsibility in his previous jobs included developing a MMA resin for road markings and creating formulations for polyurethane foams used in the production of steering wheels. After living in Freiburg for some time, the 40-year-old decided to come back to the Rhine-Main area, where he has now been living for 6 years with his wife and two children. He commented: “I feel very much at home in the chemistry department at Silikal, even if it is somewhat more complex here. And I think that with Silikal, I have found just what I was looking for, namely a good medium-sized company where I can make an active contribution to developments. That’s another reason why I’m looking forward to this new role.”
