  Dr. Sami B. Awad is a Scientist and Technologist. He has more than 25 years of industrial experience in the areas of Surface Treatment and Ultrasonic Applications Technology.

He developed, hands-on, literally hundreds of successful industrial ultrasonic cleaning processes for small, medium and multi-national companies for precision cleaning of components used in electronics, disk drives, semiconductors, medical devices, medical and dental implants, optical devices, flat panel display, automotive, aerospace, injection molds, various metal & carbide tools, weapons, metal surface finishing, and jewelry and special projects in the areas of Sonochemistry, Biodiesel and  Decontamination of Produce in the food industry. Cleanliness specs per customers, MIL specs and other Standards were from removal of general contaminants to nano particles removal.

With his extensive experience in specialty product formulations, Dr. Awad developed multiple  commercial patented chemical products for general &  precision cleaning and a line of corrosion inhibitors for metal surface preparation and treatments.

Recently he made a big contribution by inventing and establishing NovChem, a new cleaning chemistry line to serve the ultrasonic cleaning industry. The line includes environmentally safe cleaning products, corrosion inhibitors and passivating solutions.

Through his close involvement with engineers and chemists worldwide, Dr. Awad has helped in analyzing industrial processes, solving challenging chemical & ultrasonic operational problems and assisted in yield optimization and streamlining of production in some industries above.

He authored more than 25 academic papers in organic reaction mechanisms. He made numerous presentations in different conferences and professional societies. Published several technical articles and authored individual book chapters on the   applications and mechanism of Ultrasonics and Megasonics in Precision Cleaning and in nano-Particle Removal.

He also authored 20 US and International Patents. He has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and served as a Professor of Chemistry on the faculties of Drexel University, Philadelphia and Cairo University, Egypt.

He served on several ultrasonic cleaning forums and on the board of advisors for a USDA project for solving Produce Decontamination issues.

In the past 20 years Dr. Awad served as VP of Technology and Lab Director at Crest Ultrasonic Corp., Trenton, NJ. He also served as R&D Scientist with Pennwalt Corp. ( Arkema, Inc.), KOP, PA and as a Principle Scientist with Henkel Corp., Surface Technology Group, Madison Hgts, MI.  Prior to his industrial career Dr. Awad was a Professor of Chemistry at Cairo University and Drexel University, Philadelphia. Dr. Awad has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and been a member in the professional societies  ACS, UIA, IDEMA, ASM, ASTM and SME.  .
