Division awards Place scholarship to Blue.

Del Blue of Sid Richardson Carbon is the winner of the 2005 A. Wayne Place Memorial Scholarship. Blue has worked for the Sid Richardson for 33 years as a R&D Technician in the rubber laboratory. This scholarship is awarded to deserving employees who are interested in furthering their education in the rubber industry.

Blue is credited with having developed several in-house techniques for abrasion testing of rubber, transfer molding of rubber, specialized mixing techniques for unusual rubber blends and numerous testing procedures that had to be developed to meet an individual application. He was recently instrumental in developing the equipment for handling rubber, using an in-line dispersion analyzer popularized by Drs. L. Nikiel and M. Gerspacher.

Blue plans to use the scholarship to attend the Rubber Expo '05, Fall 168th Technical Meeting and Rubber Executive Summit in Pittsburgh, PA in November. He is able to choose from any of the Rubber Division, ACS, education opportunities including: four technical courses, over 100 technical presentations and the 10 business seminars offered during the new Rubber Executive Summit, Solutions for Surviving Today's Business Environment.

Blue will officially be presented the scholarship during the Fall technical meeting, November 3.
