Brazilian composites awards nominations
ALMACO has sent out a survey to help nominate the winners of 2017 Brazilian composites industry's Top of Mind awards.
The Latin-American composite materials association (ALMACO), which organizes the awards, has contacted more than 10,000 people.
‘The main novelty of this year's edition is the inclusion of the category ‘Polyurethane’,’ said Erika Bernardino, manager of ALMACO. ‘In Brazil, polyurethane resin has been increasingly used in combination with mechanical reinforcements, such as fiberglass, which qualifies it as a type of composite.’
2017 Top of Mind will feature 26 categories, divided into raw materials, processes and equipment. The winners will only be announced at the awards ceremony to be held on 7 December, at the Technological Research Institute (IPT), in São Paulo.
