EPSE Awards is an internal competition. The aim of this event is to promote unique properties of polycarbonate and a wide array of applications in which it may be used.
Polycarbonate is a material which can be easily worked and modelled, and therefore, it can be used virtually for any kind of application. It is widely used in the construction sector, mainly for big-size installations like stadiums, arenas or olympic venues. PC sheets are commonly used in engineering and among others in the automotive, electronics and medical industries. More recently polycarbonate caught the attention of interior architects & furniture designers, artists and number of other niche markets.

Awards 2016

EPSE AWARDS 2016 is the 8th edition of the competition. The projects submitted to the 8th edition of the Awards are a perfect example of the intrinsic properties of PC sheets. They clearly demonstrate high impact & fire-resistance, durability, flexibility, lightweight and transparency of polycarbonate. There were 14 projects submitted to this years’ competition including public buildings like stadiums, shopping malls, sport centers, hotels and swimming pools but also art installations.
The winners were announced during the EPSE Awards Ceremony on October 21st at the K Fair in Düsseldorf at the Trinseo stand who kindly supports the event.
