Dr Aravind Dasari is Associate Professor at NTU, School of Materials Science and Engineering. He is experienced in the design and development of composites, nanocomposites and coatings for utilisation in construction/building sector, electrical and electronic industries, food packaging and renewable energy sector. He is involved in the study of flame retardancy, and the development of various flame retardant coatings and materials in collaboration with various industry partners.
Dr Dasari holds a PhD in Materials Engineering from University of Sydney.
In a partnership with JTC, Dr Dasari led the R&D team that developed FiroShield, a fire retardant and corrosion resistant coating that can achieve 2 hour fire protection with a 5-mm thick layer. Besides being easier and cheaper to apply than conventional intumescent coatings, FiroShield also has enhanced adhesion and weathering properties.
