2017 CAMX Award Finalists Named

08 August 2017

CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo has announced the finalists for the fourth annual CAMX Award, which recognises two cutting-edge innovations that will significantly impact composites and advanced materials.

The award is divided into two categories – Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation. The Combined Strength Award acknowledges a product that incorporates advanced materials that solves a problem through teamwork and collaboration, and the Unsurpassed Innovation Award celebrates a product with a design that incorporates low cost materials for high-volume applications that can change the outlook of a particular market.

The winning entries will be announced and presented during the General Session at CAMX on 12 September at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida, US. This year's finalists will also be on display in the CAMX Exhibit Hall.

The finalists are:

Combined Strength Award:

  • Thermoplastic Composite Overmoulding Technology Reduces Cycle Time to Minutes: Victrex;
  • Halls River Bridge – FRP Composites for Next Generation Infrastructure: Florida DOT;
  • GFRP Wicket Gates: Long Lasting Structures to Ensure Navigable Waterways: Composite Advantage;
  • 9 m Wind Turbine Blade Advanced Technology Demonstrator: IACMI – The Composites Institute;
  • Development and Launch of Integrated Slide-in Oven Console Assembly w/ Stainless Steel Appearance via Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD): Mar-Bal.

Unsurpassed Innovation Award:

  • Secure Hybrid Composite Maritime Shipping Container: University of Maine – Advanced Structures and Composites Centre;
  • Next Generation CoCure Hybrid Metal/Composite Technology for Transportation: Structural Composites;
  • Edge En V. Fly Rods Made with Ekoa Plant Based Prepregs: Lingrove;
