Composite Award

Plastics, Rubber and Composites: Macromolecular Engineering

About the prize

The Composite Award is awarded in recognition of a significant or technological contribution relating to any type of composite material. Plastics, Rubber and Composites editors decide from all composite papers published in the previous two years. The final award nomination is approved by the IOM3 Composite Society.
