Cytec will be exhibiting one of Team USA’s Olympic Skeletons at JEC Americas at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Georgia, US, 13 - 15 May 2014.
Manufactured by Debotech, Cytec explains that the skeleton uses its MTM series fabric, UD carbon fibre lightweight prepegs and compatible vacuum bagging consumables.

Also featured are the SurfaceMaster advanced surfacing films and the BR water-based primers.
