Cytec Industries Inc. (Woodland Park, N.J.) will exhibit several new products, including prepregs, resin systems and adhesive technologies to reduce weight and increase performance in highly demanding applications. For aerospace applications, Cytec will feature CYCOM and MTM out-of-autoclave (OOA) products and PRISM resin infusion systems. Also featured are the SurfaceMaster® advanced surfacing films and the BR® water-based primers.

Cytec will also launch new products and accompanying technologies for the serial automotive market. XMTR50, a new, two-part component epoxy resin system, was developed specifically for the high-rate manufacture of components using a high-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) process, which enables the manufacture of components in three minutes at 120°C/248°F for a 135°C/275°F Tg. Also new is MTM 23, the industry's first application of a volatile-organic compound (VOC)-free thermoset vinyl hybrid resin/woven glass reinforced prepreg, which offers a cycle time of five minutes or less. These new automotive-focused products come as Cytec prepares a multi-million dollar investment to expand its Applications Centre, based in Heanor, U.K. to support the company’s work in collaborating with the OEMs and their supply chains in the development of novel materials, design and processing technologies.

Finally, Cytec will promote its Process Materials Extra Wide High Temp Nylon Film and co-ex film manufacturing capability, specifically developed to meet the needs of the aerospace and wind energy markets.
