Finalists Announced for the 2021 CAMX Award

The 2021 CAMX Award recognizes Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation

September 29, 2021 (Arlington, VA.) CAMX The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo has announced the finalists of the eighth annual CAMX Award, sponsored by Composites One. The CAMX Award recognizes two 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.

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.
