Titanium Musical Instrument Strings (U.S. Patent 6,348,646)
Titanium strings represent one of the most unusual musical instrument product innovations in more than 100 years. By minimizing the galvanic couple between core and windings, this patented application of surface chemistry “cuts to the core” of the problem – it slows or eliminates corrosion and increases longevity by orders of magnitude when compared to conventional strings (developed in collaboration with Peter Rohrbacher).

Polyolefin Plastisol Adhesives (U.S. Patents 7,285,583 & 7,501,468) – Polyolefin plastisol adhesive technology – developed by A. A. Parker together with W. C. Stumphauzer (licensed to H. B. Fuller Corporation).
Sunscreen Formulation Technology (U.S. Patent 7,387,795) – A new type of hydrophobic surface treatment for sunscreen pigments produces lipophilic dispersion properties, and simultaneously mitigates unwanted chromophore side reactions between organic UV absorbers and Fe compounds. This surprising benefit can facilitate the formulation of new families of sunscreen products that contain both iron-based pigments and organic UV absorbers – with the option of being silicone-free. This technology was developed by A. A. Parker in collaboration with J. C. Hollenberg, and is available for licensing. [View Patent]
Bio-Based Adhesives & Binders for Wood Composites (U.S. Patents 8,916,668 & 8,519,031) – Bio-based materials are the building blocks for a sustainable future.
