Society for Adhesion and Adhesives Announces Medal Recipients
Bishopp made many contributions to the adhesives research program at Hexcel Composites during his tenure from 1963 until 2001. His role within the company became increasingly significant as his experience and expertise grew. He conducted hands-on, practical work in the development of adhesive systems, particularly brake-bonding and honeycomb adhesives, which are still used today. In later years, he was solely responsibility for developmental work based, in particular, on phenolic, epoxy and bismaleimide chemistries.
Creton’s work experience includes a year at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA, as a post-doctoral fellow, and an 18-month spell at École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles (ESPCI), Paris, France, as a Swiss National Research Fund senior fellow.
