Pavlovic, an innovator in conductive plastic applications and a veteran of the auto and aircraft industry brings more than 34 years of experience in advanced engineering to the company. His world-class engineering expertise is another critical element advancing ElectriPlast's transformative impact on a variety of product materials by reducing weight while preserving key conductive and shielding properties.
'As a trailblazer in conductive plastics applications, Bob's experience is a perfect fit for Integral,' said
Pavlovic's hire is part of Integral's strategy to provide engineering and technical expertise to support the increasing demand for its hybrid conductive plastics. Integral recently launched a Technology Center in
Pavlovic will work in
In 20 years of serving the North American automotive industry, Pavlovic has pioneered multiple new products and technologies, as well as created significant intellectual property. 'Bob is a giant in our industry,' stated
'My focus is on the implementation of ElectriPlast materials as the enabler for multiple products in several markets' said
The most fundamental change with the greatest benefits is in the introduction of new materials, specifically in the High Voltage systems arena, where aluminum as the conductor, and conductive polymers as the shielding and enclosing materials, will be the standard.'
Pavlovic continues 'I have developed and tested applications utilizing ElectriPlast and compared them with aluminum counterparts and found shielding performance with ElectriPlast materials had equal or in some cases better performance. ElectriPlast has the added benefit of significant weight reduction, and environmental robustness.
Materials used to manufacture ElectriPlast, in particular carbon fiber, are experiencing major price changes, resulting in significant cost reduction in the manufacturing of ElectriPlast. These economic trends, along with ElectriPlast's superior performance and, weight savings will not only make ElectriPlast the material of choice for shielding, but also for many other applications.'
He helped us carve out unique applications in the auto industry and he possesses the innate ability to communicate effectively with both management and workers on the production line. He is a great addition for a growing company like Integral and I believe he will play a key role in its success.'
Pavlovic spent the past eight years at
Pavlovic spent six years as a Manager and Director of Advanced Engineering at FCI, a supplier of electronic and electrical interconnect systems. There, he served as the 'Subject Matter Expert' leading and directing multidisciplinary engineering groups in the development and launch of new technologies and products. Bob also spent 12 years in development of jet engines and engine accessories at Air Depot Orao.
