Dr. Herman Stone

Dr. Herman Stone
Herman Stone enjoyed a brilliant career spanning the early years of flexible polyurethane foam development to his present-day consulting practice. He is a renowned researcher, inventor, expert in combustion performance, and a leading contributor to the FPF industry.
Born in Munich, Germany in 1924, at 14 years old, Herman Stone escaped Nazi Germany with his family to emigrate to the United States. Stone became a U.S. citizen in 1945 while serving in the United States Army.
Stone graduated from Bethany College and was awarded a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry by Ohio State University in 1950. Stone began working in polyurethane foam development in the mid 1950s, initially for Allied Chemical (now Honeywell) and then, in 1974 for Tenneco Chemicals Foam (later to become General Foam). He left his mark on almost every aspect of the FPF industry, from lab research, process development, applications research and technological forecasting through regulatory compliance, patents and trademarks, and waste minimization and disposal. He pioneered much of the FPF industry's flammability research and has been a leader and an officer in the PFA and in other industry and national associations.
In 1968, Stone patented the technology for producing super-soft foams to support the commercialization of soft, low resiliency cushioning-grade foams for use in home furnishings and automotive applications. He holds 24 patents and is the author of 70 publications and presentations. Recently, Dr. Stone authored the section on polyurethanes in the International Plastics Flammability Handbook of 2003.
In addition to remaining active in various religious and community groups, Herman Stone works to educate today's young people on the importance of remembering the Holocaust. His own personal story appears in the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

"If we were told tomorrow that we can't use penta, we'd be in trouble," said Herman Stone of the Polyurethane Foam Assn., an industry group.

Finding alternatives there was easier, Stone said, because European customers prefer denser, less springy foam in their furniture and are willing to pay more.
