JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Awards ceremony will take place on 5 November, in São Paulo.
After two months of surveys conducted by Destaque Business Research, the Brazilian composites industry will finally meet the finalists of the Top of Mind. Organized since 2010 by the Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO), the Top of Mind is the main award of the supply chain for this material, a type of high-performance plastic present in more than 50,000 applications in the construction, transportation, wind energy, chemical and marine sectors, among others. “In total, there were 5,798 votes, a record number since the creation of the Top of Mind,” says Erika Bernardino, marketing manager of ALMACO.See below the finalists of the 24 categories:Composites Industry: MVC – Redelease – TecnofibrasManual Process (hand lay-up / spray-up): Fortlev – Marcopolo – TecnofibrasRTM: Marcopolo – MVC – TecnofibrasSMC: BMC do Brasil – FPK do Brasil – TecnofibrasBMC: BMC do Brasil – FB Mix – TechpressPultrusion: Cogumelo – MVC/Stabilit – StratusInfusion: Barracuda – MVC – TecsisFilament Winding: Petrofisa – Tecniplas – O-tekContinuous Lamination: Doplast – Fibralit – MVCPolyester Resin: Ashland – Elekeiroz – ReichholdEpoxy Resin: Dow – Huntsman – RedeleaseVinyl Ester Resin: Ashland – Reichhold – RedeleaseFiberglass: CPIC – Jushi – Owens CorningAdhesive: 3M – Artecola – LordPeroxide: AkzoNobel – Polinox – RedeleaseCarbon Fiber: Redelease – Texiglass – Toho TenaxGelcoat: CCP/Polynt – Morquímica – ReichholdMolding compound: BMC do Brasil – FB MIX – TecnofibrasRelease Agent: Chem-Trend – Henkel – RedeleaseAdditive: BYK – Polystell – RedeleaseMolds Manufacturers: AJB Souza – Bruno Moldes – DesafioDistributor: Diprofiber – Redelease – V.I.
