Composite Advantage Bags CAMX Combined Strength Award

January 08 2018

Composite Advantage was named the winner of the CAMX Combined Strength Award for its Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite wicket gate. The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) recognized Composite Advantage and its collaborators - the US Army Corps of Engineers Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL), West Virginia University and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Rock Island District - for teamwork that used composite material to solve a problem.

Composite Advantage’s FRP wicket gate is the first composite navigational structure to be used by USACE. FRP wicket gates are 40 percent less on a first cost basis and provide a lifespan of more than 50 years unlike conventional wood gates which have a lifespan of approximately 15 years. Composite Advantage’s FRP product has been sourced by USACE in the 2018 budget for the LaGrange and Peoria Lock & Dam locations along the Illinois waterway.
