Cytec Industries Features New Composite Products at JEC Americas

01 October 2013

Cytec will promote its range of advanced composite and process material at JEC Americas in Boston, Massachusetts, US October 2 – 4, 2013.

Cytec says it will highlight MTM 348FR, a new curing epoxy resin prepreg matrix designed for railway applications. The company says MTM348FR offers fire protection on railway vehicles to meet Category HL2 of CEN T45545-2.2013 and HL3 under specific circumstances, has excellent mechanical properties and is ideal for the manufacture of lightweight composite components for both interior and exterior structural and non-structural applications.

Cytec will also showcase its newest corrosion-inhibiting, modified-epoxy bonding primer, BR 252.  The product is specifically formulated to address emerging environmental, health and safety standards.  BR252 provides excellent adhesion and corrosion protection and mechanical properties equal to solvent-based primer systems.  It is compatible with most 121°C - 177°C curing adhesives and has a wide curing window and long out time.

The company also says it will promote its Extra Wide High Temp Nylon Film and co-ex film capability, which it claims was specifically developed to meet the needs of the aerospace and wind energy markets. Indeed this film can run as wide as 4.7 meters LFT / 9.4 meters sheets for co-ex film and enables the manufacturing of significantly larger components much more efficiently (labour, time and material costs).

Cytec provides advanced composite and process materials for aerospace, automotive, wind energy, motorsport, marine, mass transportation and other applications.
