National Inventor of the Year, Physics Alumnus to Speak on Campus

Posted: December 2, 2009
Buffalo State alumnus Keith Kowalsky, ’86, will speak as part of the Chemistry/Physics Fall Lecture Series, Thursday, December 3, at 12:30 p.m. in Science Building C205.

Kowalsky, who majored in physics at Buffalo State, is president of Flame-Spray Industries, Inc.

In July, he received the Intellectual Property Owners Education Foundation’s National Inventor of the Year Award at a ceremony held at the Smithsonian National Museum in Washington, D.C. Kowalsky contributed to the development of a unique process that can deposit a molten metal coating on the internal surface of a cylinder, such as pipes, pumps and engine bores common in the automotive industry. The technology was utilized on the 2009 Motor Trend Car of the Year—the Nissan GT-R.
