2007 Cardolite M. T. Harvey Award Winner – Joseph Formolo

Since the early 80’s, Joseph Formolo has been a formulator with the currently named Railroad Friction Products. Joseph is responsible for many innovations in his formulae using CNSL. He has continually increased the amount and number of CNSL based products used in friction material for railroad braking. Examples of the specific performance he has achieved with cashew based products are: friction level adjustment in compounding; cost reduction; better compatibility; reduced wear; better flexibility; and substitution of hazardous raw materials.
