Dow Corning expert to serve as instructor at lubrication industry event

MIDLAND, MICHIGAN, USA: A Dow Corning expert who specializes in the company’s Molykote ® brand lubrication technologies will serve as an instructor during an upcoming major event for industrial lubrication professionals.

Chad Chichester, Dow Corning Application Engineering and Technical Service (AETS), will teach course segments on multiple topics during educational sessions at the NLGI Annual Meeting, scheduled for June 9 through 12 in Palm Beach, Fla.

Chichester’s topics of instruction will include:

  • “Applying Predictive Maintenance” and “Practices in Lubrication Management” as part of the Lubricating Grease: Application & Maintenance Course, which he chairs for NLGI
  • “Industrial Applications” as part of the Basic Grease Education Course
  • “Silicone Greases” as part of the Advanced Grease Education Course

According to Chichester, Dow Corning’s support for the NLGI Annual Meeting – both through its patron-level corporate sponsorship and through employee participation in instructional and leadership roles – is a natural fit with the company’s interest and expertise in the lubrication industry.

“The Molykote Lubrication Solutions team is continuing its strong commitment to the field of tribology by being a part of this very important lubrication industry event,” Chichester said. “We are dedicated to the proliferation of knowledge and understanding as it applies to greases, pastes and anti-friction coatings – and events like the NLGI Annual Meeting are important to the expansion of the industry’s knowledge base.”

In addition to Chichester’s service in an NLGI leadership role, Dow Corning is represented by Scientist Emeritus Dave Como, who serves on the NLGI executive board as its executive treasurer and will present the organization’s financials during the NLGI Annual Meeting’s general assembly.
