Strongwell Corporation has been awarded the American Composites Manufacturers Association’s (ACMA) ACE Award in the Infinite Possibility for Market Growth Category, during the second annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) conference.

According to Strongwell, this award is presented to the composites product that “demonstrates the potential to significantly increase the use of composites in existing markets or generate the greatest impact to open new and emerging markets for composites.”

This year’s entry by Strongwell featured its DURAGRID HD-4000 2.5” grating panels, manufactured at the company’s Chatfield, Minnesota, US location and used at the Utah State University Electric Vehicle and Roadway (EVR) research facility in Logan, Utah, US. The EVR serves as the vehicle systems integration facility for the Center for Sustainable Electrified Transportation (SELECT). Magnetic transfer plates are housed beneath the grating which charge electric vehicles in motion.

Utah State selected DURAGRID HD-4000 for its ample support for vehicle loadings while still protecting the magnetic transfer charging plates on the electrified quarter mile test track. This project also realises the benefits of Strongwell’s grating being light weight, high strength, non-conductive and electromagnetic interference-free.
