Herr Dr. Eckl

Dr. rer. nat. Josef Eckl

R&D, Laboratory Management

As a chemist, Mr. Josef Eckl completed his doctorate in the fields of interfacial chemistry and mineral processing, subsequently applying the knowledge gained internationally in the paper and packaging industry. The manifold interactions of polymers and mineral pigments via their surfaces have been his area of expertise for many years.

At Nobelmin, these interactions determine decisive quality criteria that ultimately make up the product functionality of ground talc as talc in a wide variety of applications – whether delamination, grinding and dispersion of talc, the effects on impact strength and stiffness in plastic components or the adhesion, slip and haze of films.

As a research manager, developer in charge of a laboratory, technical consultant or as a salesman and manager of a test facility: the problems from efficient product development to economical production are well known to him.
Nobelmin customers find in him a competent and creative development partner with a lot of experience.
