Cytec to Display Latest Technology at Compotec 2013

05 February 2013

Cytec will be displaying a selection of vacuum bagging consumables, infusion materials, reusable vacuum systems and complementary products on Stand 852 at Compotec 2013.

The event which runs alongside Seatech 2013 will take place at the CarraraFiere Exhibition Centre, Marina di Carrara, Italy, from the 6 to 8 February 2013.

Cytec manufactures and supplies high-performance prepregs, resin systems, adhesives and other products into industrial applications, such as serial automotive, motorsports, defence, and others. They also manufacture and supply process materials such as vacuum bagging consumables, reusable vacuum systems and kitting solutions into the industries served by Aerospace Materials and Industrial Materials.

Cytec state that with their resin infusion processing techniques they can support any project from start to finish, and offer products such as VMS2 and Infuply, both of which they say can offer improvements in methodology and final laminate quality.

  • VMS2 is a vacuum medium strip which enables vacuum flow on top of wet impregnated zones throughout the entire curing process. Working at temperatures up to 160°C (320°F), it is ideal for thick part component production where resin flow/distribution networks are complex.
  • Infuply is a perforated release film combined with knitted infusion mesh which aids resin transfer and strips easily from the laminate. Working at temperatures up to 120°C (248°F), it is ideal for manufacture of large component parts and delivers significant labour savings

To demonstrate their capabilities in prepreg manufacture and innovation in this arena, they will be displaying a selection of structural parts manufactured by some of their clients. Accredited to TS16949 and ISO 9001/AS9100, they say they are equipped to offer time and cost-saving prepreg solutions for manufacturing components and structures suitable for serial automotive production.

Representatives from Cytec will be available to discuss all of the above exhibits, as well as any other immediate or future requirements.
