University of Cincinnati's William Vanooij earns first Ohio Patent Award from Ohio Academy of Science
Date:3/30/2010

es the bonding of steel to rubber through the use of silanes," Vanooij continues. "No one had done that before."

The patent has led to the building, design and testing of a special type of radial tires.

"We collaborate with Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in Findlay, Ohio, and also with Tokusen USA, Inc., in Arkansas," Vanooij says. Tokusen is the domestic branch of a Japanese high-quality "specialty wire" manufacturer, who works extensively with the tire industry by providing the steel cords for the tire belts.

"The people at Cooper Tire are very excited," says Vanooij. "Their tire tests clearly demonstrated the performance advantages of the presence of the silane-treated steel cords in the belt."

Cooper, Tokusen and Ecosil have been working on this for years, but have been keeping it quiet until now.

"We've been blowing tires up and blowing tires out," says Vanooij. "Now we're ready to blow our cover."

In fact, Vanooij is receiving the Melvin Mooney Distinguished Technology Award from the American Chemical Society's Rubber Division. He will be presenting a discussion of the tires and tire bonding in his Award Lecture at the spring meeting of the division.

Vanooij earned his MS with highest honors in chemical engineering in 1964 and his PhD in physical chemistry also with highest honors in 1971, both from Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. After receiving his PhD, he accepted a two-year post-doctoral associate position at Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University, but then returned to The Netherlands to become a senior research chemist for Akzo Research Laboratories (now Akzo Nobel), a position he held for more than 12 years. Vanooij then returned to academe as a visiting professor in the Department of Materials Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, followed by a three-year appointment at the Colorado School of Mines as a professor of chemistry. He joined the Depar
