Romeo RIM Wins 2013 Polyurethane Innovation Award



Published September 26, 2013
The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) today announced that Romeo RIM, Inc., won the 2013 Polyurethane Innovation Award for its “Class A, In-mold Decorated Long Fiber Injection.” Romeo RIM’s innovation, which was selected from three finalists, was announced as the winner during the closing session of the 2013 Polyurethanes Technical Conference in Phoenix.

Romeo RIM described its innovation:  “Long fiber injection (LFI) is a material system that combines structural foam polyurethane with long glass strands to create a light weight structural part. Due to the glass concentration, class A surface finishes were not feasible in the past. After three years of development, Romeo RIM has commercialized a class A LFI system that is decorated in-mold.”

“We congratulate Romeo RIM on winning the 2013 Polyurethane Innovation Award,” said Lee Salamone, senior director of CPI. “Romeo RIM’s innovation—which is three years in the making—is an excellent example of how a company’s commitment and passion to realize a novel idea brings new technologies to the marketplace.”

Nearly 950 people attended the 2013 Polyurethanes Technical Conference, which featured 68 technical presentations, 55 table top exhibits, 27 poster presentations and eight Professional Development Program (PDP) courses.
