Cyclics Corporation to Introduce New CBT Resin Grades at the K Show

06 August 2004

Cyclics Corporation will be introducing a variety of grades of CBT resin at the K Show in Dusseldorf, Germany this October.

CBT resins are claimed by Cyclics to offer an “unmatched combination of processing ease and high performance in demanding applications”. Cyclics also state that this new product achieves its unique processing by melting to a water-like viscosity before it polymerizes and solidifies to a high strength engineering thermoplastic.

The versatility of CBT resin enables it to be processed by nearly all types of plastics processing and offers designers and moulders new opportunities in composites, where the low viscosity of CBT resins allows the maximum use of structural fibres to produce lightweight structural composites that can be thermoformed and recycled without hazardous VOC emissions.

CBT resins will also offer opportunities in Nanocomposites where the resins easily wet-out or exfoliate nano-scale particles to produce lightweight materials with greatly improved stiffness, use temperature, dimensional stability and decreased permeability.

Cyclics believe the Resins will also have uses for rotational moulding, low pressure moulding and casting and compounding, where the CBT resin offers a variety of improvements.

""The K Show is a great opportunity for us to introduce our products to the international plastics industry,"" said John Ciovacco, Head of Global Marketing for Cyclics. ""The timing couldn't be better with the K Show being held just before our first commercial plant is on stream.""
