The Pressure Sensitive Tape Council (PSTC) named Jaime C. Grunlan, Ph.D, recipient of its coveted 2010 Carl Dahlquist Award. Grunlan is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science and Engineering Program, Texas A&M University. He presented “Nanocomposite Gas Barrier Thin Films on PET” at the PSTC TECH 33 technical seminar in May in Las Vegas, NV.

“This year’s TECH 33 speakers challenged the judging process with so many quality presentations and well-documented technical papers,” said Gerard Prilutski, Ph.D., PSTC TECH 33 committee chair and manager of Research & Development for American Biltrite Inc. “Several of the judges commented that PSTC had an all-time high in outstanding presentations, challenging the Carl Dahlquist award process.”

During its annual technical conference, PSTC presents the Dahlquist Award to one speaker who, following the evaluation of a panel of judges, demonstrates the best in research relating to adhesive tape technology. The selection covers a range of criteria, concentrating on originality and scientific contribution, but also includes presentation and quality of visuals. The award is named for Dahlquist, who developed the Dahlquist criterion of tack, which determines the modulus value of a material necessary for it to be low enough and tacky enough to be considered a pressure-sensitive adhesive.
