Researchers from the University of Southern Mississippi win the first American Coatings Award

Yesterday, the American Coatings Award, a prestigious new prize celebrating innovations in coatings research, was awarded to a team of scientists from the University of Southern Mississippi at the American Coatings Conference (ACC) in Charlotte/USA. The winning paper, "Letting Nature Tackle the Dirty Work: The Future of Coatings Additives," describes the team’s collaboration with Reactive Surfaces Ltd. of Austin, Texas to develop a self-synthesizing film. Vincentz’s Barbara Brune and NPCA’s Michael Morgan presented the USD 2,500 award to the paper’s lead author, James Rawlins, at an awards ceremony attended by hundreds of conference participants. The American Coatings Award is co-sponsored by NPCA and Vincentz Network. "Competition for the prize was intense. We received 180 abstracts for 72 presentation slots," said Morgan. "The winning paper had to be innovative, scientific, clearly presented and of wide-ranging interest. Short-listing 12 finalists was tough, but Rawlins’ team was the clear winner."
