The presentations to be delivered by Owens Corning composites experts
Reinforcements of Concrete – Next Frontier for Composites. Global
Product Manager Mikhail Vorobiev will discuss the benefits of glass
fiber reinforced polymers (GFRP) as a replacement for steel
reinforcements to improve durability and corrosion issues associated
with reinforced concrete structures. GFRP benefits include corrosion
resistance, light weight, enhanced strength, and long service life,
making it a key solution for future composite growth aligned with a
number of megatrends impacting the infrastructure market. Tuesday,
Sept. 27, 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. PT (Room 207A).
Where Glass Reinforcements Can Create Value for Low- and
High-Pressure Pipe Manufacturers. Global Product Manager Bryan
Minges will share examples of how improved reinforcement solutions can
help create value for low- and high-pressure pipe manufacturers in
application development, pipe design optimization, and manufacturing
efficiency. The presentation will address opportunities for composites
growth driven by improved performance, new application development, and
lower operating cost for filament winding applications supporting the
water distribution, petrochemical, infrastructure, marine
transportation, and power and energy sectors. Wednesday, Sept. 28, 8
a.m. to 8:45 a.m. PT (Room 210C).
How to Grow SMC Technology Applications. Dr. Sanghamitra Sircar,
Global Product Manager for SMC, will share her perspective on the
renaissance of sheet molding compound (SMC) as a solution for a variety
of applications to address opportunities in the global industrial,
building and automotive markets. The presentation will discuss major
markets and drivers for SMC, as well as the range of glass fiber
solutions and unique modeling capabilities that can help the industry
think differently about part optimization based on material and design
enhancements. Thursday, Sept. 29, 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. (Room 207C).
Creating Shared Value & Competitive Advantage for Composites Through
Sustainability. Jesus Hernandez-Torres, Senior R&D Leader, Product
Stewardship and Sustainability, will discuss opportunities to grow the
adoption and impact of composites in a variety of industries by
leveraging the environmental benefits of transitioning from conventional
materials to composites. The presentation will explore how
sustainability can serve as a differentiator in recycling, product
transparency, materials health, carbon neutral products, and material
substitution. Thursday, Sept. 29, 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. (Room 207D).
Now in its third year, CAMX is billed as the premier North American
event for showcasing composites and advanced materials products,
solutions, and thinking. The conference program is scheduled for Sept.
26-29. Event exhibits will be open Sept. 27-29.
