Robert Gray

Dr. Robert Gray, President of Renegade Materials, is widely recognized as a science and technology leader in the field of high-temperature polymer composites.   In 2007, Dr. Gray co-founded Renegade Materials along with other composite industry veterans and high-temperature materials experts.  His role as corporate visionary provides leadership and spurs technical innovation motivated by a commitment to the development and commercialization of the next-generation of high-performance composite materials.

Dr. Gray earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Dayton in 1982.  He started his career at Union Carbide, conducting research and development studies on polyacrylonitrile (PAN) and pitch-based carbon fibers.  In 1984, He received a Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Cleveland State University.  In 1985, Dr. Gray began employment at GE Aircraft Engines (Cincinnati, Ohio), where his research was focused on polyimide materials science and composite technology.  The position involved working with universities, government laboratories, and the aerospace industry to advance the technology for heat-resistant polymers, preprags, fibers, coatings, and adhesives.  Candidate materials were scaled-up into production, fabricated into composite components, and successfully engine tested.

In 1993, Dr. Gray co-founded Maverick Corporation as President and Director of Technology.  He consults throughout the aerospace industry with regard to the synthesis and application of polyimide resins, coatings, molding compounds, prepregs and the processing of high temperature materials.  Dr. Gray received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati, in 1995.  His dissertation centered on “High-Temperature Composite Technology.” 

Dr. Gray is the co-inventor on five U.S. patents regarding high-temperature composites, processes, and coatings.  His leadership skills enhanced by his 35+ years of experience in high temperature composites for aerospace markets has greatly benefited Renegade Materials Corporation.
