(19) STICKING WITH SCIENCE! THE NEED FOR STEM ADVOCACY Jayshree Seth, Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate, 3M Company

Science matters to us - at 3M we care about science. We wanted to understand the publics perception around science, so we conducted a global third-party study called the 3M State of Science Index and what we found is that science is largely underappreciated, invisible or taken-for-granted. People dont seem to understand or acknowledge the role of science in their daily lives but have huge expectations for what it should deliver in the future. It is clear science needs advocates, especially since 4 out of 10 surveyed said that if science didnexist their lives wouldnt be any different! It is also apparent that the relationship of science with people is complex. In fact, 85% of people surveyed admit they know little to nothing about science, but the same percent wish they knew more. Moreover, 87% of the global community believes we need science to solve the worlds problems. Nearly 60% of people interested in science say that they believe scientific advancements will benefit future generations. It was also interesting and perhaps not surprising to see that women trail men in the positive sentiment of science and almost 60% view scientists as elitists. Jayshree was appointed as 3Ms first-ever Chief Science Advocate and she will be sharing the results of this multi-year survey, what 3M is doing about it, and a call for action for all of us.



Session-5  APPLICATIONS IN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

(21) ADHESIVE CHALLENGES FOR FLOOR COVERING AND CONCRETE SUB FLOOR INSTALLATION Raj Hariharan, Senior Group Leader, Mapei Corporation USA

Flooring manufacturers produce a variety of floor coverings such carpet tiles, modular carpets, wood flooring and resilient flooring, which includes luxury vinyl tile and plank, Linoleum, etc. A variety of adhesives such as pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA), polyurethane, epoxy and modular are required for flooring installation and it depends on the type of floor covering and sub floor as well. When flooring is installed on sub concrete floors, following proper preparation procedures before flooring installation is a primary requirement. Due to compact construction schedules, many times these procedures are overlooked and in such cases fl oor moisture becomes a billion-dollar problem for commercial and residential establishments. Moisture penetration through concrete flooring can cause subsequent problems to structure above such as flooring and building system. Most significant is health related issues due to mold, mildew and

rotting problems. In this presentation an introduction to type/class of adhesives that are used for different floor covering will be presented. Moisture issues through case study will be illustrated. Further moisture mediation remedies such as coatings/sealants will also be discussed.

The discussion concludes with several summary considerations for both sellers and buyers in M&A transactions.

 

(35) VALUATION AND INTEGRATION LESSONS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A FINANCIAL BUYER Brian Orkin, Partner, Arsenal Capital

Financial buyers, generally, may focus on different criteria or valuation metrics than strategic/trade buyers. There are also many approaches to creating these returns some financial buyers are oriented more towards value and are looking to buy low and sell high. Some buyers are looking more towards growth and are looking at hitting their value by growing EBITDA exponentially, and in doing so getting a higher multiple on exit than on entry. So you are lucky enough to buy an Adhesives & Sealants company, what then? How do you go about integrating it into and existing company? And then to maximize value

for an Adhesives & Sealants Company, financial buyers will try to create a strategically important or must have company. Such an asset typically will provide the next acquirer (whether strategic or financial) with outsized growth, new technology or market access, margin enhancement, scale or cash fl ow. If the company offers prospective buyers one or more of the above, the selling financial investor should be rewarded by the market.

Session-14  SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS AND PROCESSES

 

(63) COMPATIBILIZING PRESSURE SENSITIVE ADHESIVES WITH THE PET RECYCLING STREAM: SCOPE, CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES Tom Ribelli, Research Associate, Avery Dennison

The issue of plastic recycling is omnipresent. Within the PET recycling industry, pressure sensitive labels (PSLs) are widely considered to be an impedance towards closed loop, bottle to bottle (B2B) recycling due to contamination of the PET from the adhesive and label. This generally results in a downgrading of the recycled PET (rPET) which limits its downstream value. While wash off-able PSL solutions are available, many of these products suffer from either a lack of adhesion or wash-off robustness.
