Cytec Introduces New Products and Technology Advances at JEC Europe 2014

04 March 2014

Cytec Industries will be showcasing its latest technology portfolio developments at the JEC Europe show.

The company says visitors can learn more about how its state-of-the-art prepreg, resin system and adhesive technologies reduce weight and increase performance in extreme demand applications.

Cytec explains that it will feature CYCOM and MTM out-of-autoclave products and PRISM resin infusion systems, for aerospace applications. It states that these products support the industry’s need for increased flexibility in composites part manufacturing.  Also featured are SurfaceMaster advanced surfacing films and BR water-based primers.

Cytec states it will also be launching new products and accompanying technologies for the Serial Automotive market.

According to Cytec, XMTR50, its new, two part component epoxy resin system, was developed specifically for the high rate manufacture of components using a High Pressure Resin Transfer Moulding (HP-RTM) process.

MTM 23, which the company claim is the industry's first application of a volatile-organic compound (VOC)-free thermoset vinyl hybrid resin woven glass reinforced prepreg, enables the manufacture of parts by press moulding in 5 minutes or less.

Finally, Cytec says it 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. Indeed, the company says 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 will be exhibiting at stand D17, Hall 7.3.
