The deadline for 2022 Innovation Award submissions is January 31. The award winners will be announced at the World Adhesive and Sealant Conference, which will be held April 25-27 in Chicago.

Recipients of the awards will demonstrate the value proposition of novel chemistry and added value in a field application or improvement in design and chemical process. To be eligible for the award, a nominated technology must meet the scope of the ASC Innovation Awards Program by meeting five specific criteria.

Raw material suppliers, manufacturers of adhesives and/or sealants, and academics can submit for the award. The award can also be submitted collectively between raw material supplier and manufacturer, raw material supplier and academia, or manufacturer and academia. One combined entry should be submitted for that scenario.

Full submission requirements and additional details are available at
