CAG Technology Partner Wins 2017 CAMX Unsurpassed Innovation Award
 The annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo recognizes cutting-edge innovations and innovators that are at the forefront of the composite and advanced materials market. The 2017 Award for Unsurpassed Innovation was presented to Structural Composites Inc. - a longtime partner of the Composite Applications Group - for its Next-Generation CoCure Hybrid Metal/Composite Technology for Transportation. This technology debuted in Wabash National Corporation's refrigerated semi-trailers. Through its development contract with Wabash, CAG matched the application with one of our key technology partners - Structural Composites Inc. - which resulted in this game-changing technology. The award winning all-composite refrigerated truck body is 20% lighter and 25% more thermally efficient than traditional aluminum models. The CoCure flexible resin coatings protect the wall and roof panels, while providing puncture resistance. The hybrid metal/composite floor can withstand 24,000 pounds, exceeding the limits of dry vans or any other refrigerated van design on the market. “Wabash National took a big leap of faith and allowed us to innovate through failure,” commented Scot Lewit, president of Structural Composites Inc. This ground-breaking partnership led to "a new way of thinking to connect metals and composites." CAG connected the market need to a technology fit that has revolutionized the truck trailer market.

Structural Composites Inc. president Scott Lewit and vice president Mike Nichols accepted the award.
