The American Coatings Association is accepting nominations for its annual J. Mattiello Lecture Award for 2019.

The winner of the lecture award will present a 50- to 55-minute lecture on "a phase of chemistry, engineering, human relationship, or other discipline fundamental to paint, coatings, varnish, lacquer, or related protective and decorative coatings." 

The Mattiello Lecture Award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding contributions to science, technology, and/or engineering related to the coatings industry. Nominations must include information on the nominee's professional history and outstanding achievements, along with letters of support from others in the industry. Individuals may not nominate themselves.

Last year's Mattiello Lecture Award went to Ray Fernando, Arthur C. Edwards Chair in Coatings Technology and Ecology at California State Polytechnic University, who presented a paper titled "Rheological and Colloidal Aspects of Latex-Associative Thickener Formulations: Overcoming the Remaining Challenges.”

Nominations will be accepted through Oct. 1; more information on what information to include and how to submit is available here.
