Dr Jon Elvins

Senior Technology Transfer Fellow

Jon completed an Engineering Doctorate relating corrosion performance of galvanised products to their microstructure in 2004. Upon graduating from the scheme, Jon joined Tata Steel Europe in a dual role of process development and quality consistency for pre-finished steels. After one year, Jon’s focus switched to product development mainly within the galvanised coating area. The culmination of this work was the implementation of pre-painted MagiZinc™, the first new substrate for pre-painted steel launched by the company in over a decade. The two major aspects of Jon’s current role are development of an inter-seasonal heat storage system and providing industrial support and guidance to the current Engineering Doctorate Research Engineers. Jon now works for Swansea University at SPECIFIC.
