ACMA and Member Companies Meet with NIST to Help Composites Industry Overcome Barriers

February 27 2017

After meeting with Members of Congress and agency leadership on Capitol Hill, participants in the American Composites Manufacturers Association's (ACMA) annual Infrastructure Fly-in event met with a wide array of end users at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Md., for a workshop focusing on the barriers to the commercialization of composites in infrastructure applications.

Together, the workshop's participants identified that the most common barriers included composites training and education, codes and standards, composites durability and service life prediction, and testing. ACMA hopes to work with NIST in the future to gain additional insights and to develop standards for composites in infrastructure.
