Brazilian Composites Survey Begins

17 October 2017

The survey that will nominate the winners of the Brazilian composites industry’s 2017 Top of Mind awards is underway.

Conducted by Destaque Business Research, the survey is sent to more than 10,000 email addresses provided by the Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO), organiser of the Top of Mind awards. 

The 2017 Top of Mind will feature 26 categories, divided into raw materials, processes and equipment. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 7 December at the Technological Research Institute (IPT) in São Paulo. 

This year’s edition includes the category ‘Polyurethane’ for the first time.

“In Brazil, polyurethane resin has been increasingly used in combination with mechanical reinforcements, such as fibreglass, which qualifies it as a type of composite,” notes Erika Bernardino, Manager of ALMACO.
