Finalists Announced for 2016 CAMX Award

CAMX announces finalists for 2016 CAMX Award recognizing Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation

September 13, 2016 (Anaheim, Calif.)CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo is proud to announce the finalists for the third annual CAMX Award, sponsored by Ashland. The CAMX Award recognizes two cutting-edge innovations that will significantly impact composites and advanced materials. The award is divided into two categories that embody the spirit of CAMX – Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation.

As two distinct honors, the Combined Strength Award acknowledges a product that incorporates composites 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 next week and presented during the General Session at CAMX – Tuesday, September 27 at the Anaheim Convention Center. To see the entries in person, go to the award pavilion (booth M98) of the Exhibit Hall.
