5th International Specialist Conference in Düsseldorf

Ernst Jüch was born on 1. 08. 1912 in Diesdorf. After completing his technical studies he took up a position with Bamag in Cologne. Due to a service obligation, he joined Dynamit Nobel AG in Troisdorf, where he had been working since 1944 as a project manager in process engineering for plastics. In addition to the development of soft PVC up to production readiness, he was involved, among other things, in the improvement of processes for the manufacture of semi-finished products from rigid and soft PVC, as well as PVC floor coverings. He has also made significant contributions to the development of PVC-based foams.

The achievement of the award is based on the development of a pilot plant for the production of open-pored high-frequency weldable soft PVC foam and its further expansion into production plants.
