Hexion Canada Inc., Edmonton, AB
Working as an Adhesive Wood Technologist in the research and development center at Hexion, I was provided many opportunities to do multiple tasks in the lab. I finished some Oriented Strand Board studies to explore how to save costs in the mill from resin perspective. In addition, I learned how to use the Automatic Bonding Evaluation System to check the bond strength of different plywood resins, and how to use the rheometer to check the cure speed of different resins. I really appreciate the support and encouragement provided by my supervisor and my coworkers. During my work term with Hexion I became more confident. Finally, I would also like to thank the Co-op Program which allowed me to gain this valuable work experience before graduation.
