Mort Wallach Biography

Mort Wallach, President of PEL Associates has a Ph.D. in physical chemistry and was a Fulbright postdoc in polymer physics. He has over 30 years experience in materials research and development and its application to defense, homeland security, and industrial requirements. Recent projects involve development of award winning smart micro sensors and smart self-renewable coatings with submarine-based contracts from DARPA and NAVAIR. Applications include: (for the sensors) anti-submarine warfare, port security, aircraft safety, and (for the coatings) aircraft deicing, ship anti-fouling, power plant intakes, and CBW cleanup.

Dr. Wallach’s experience includes uncovering and demonstrating new product opportunities, and the development, scale-up, plant design, and commercialization of new products. He has authored twenty three refereed publications on materials development and structure, five recent books, three recently issued patents, and six new patent applications on smart micro products and applications. PEL clients (over 200) include representatives from medical, electrical, automotive, aerospace, marine, industrial product, defense companies and government agencies (DARPA, NAVAIR, ONR). He has extensive design, development, application, and phase-in experience with many products in various industries. Additional details can be found on our web site at

Project Management
Dr. Wallach managed the Anti-Submarine Sensor project for DARPA Phase I and II, the Underwater Vehicle Tracking System project for NAVAIR, and the Submarine Forward Escape Trunk Hatch Cofferdam project for ONR. As head of Polymer Research and Development at TRW, he was responsible for product and process development, program management, and business procurement. Dr. Wallach managed the technical aspects of construction of compounding lines at Polysar to manufacture the products developed and spearheaded entry into the engineering plastics business by developing concepts and successfully demonstrating their technical and business advantages. He was a key player on the DuPont team that developed Kapton polyimide film and conducted extensive work on various plastics and films including PET, polyimide, polyvinyl fluoride, polycarbonate, polypropylene, nylon, and barrier composites.
