Cytec Industries will be exhibiting at the upcoming Composites Europe Show, 7-9 October 2014 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
According to Cytec, it will be promoting its automotive technology capabilities on its stand including, rapid cure thermoset prepregs, featuring new products including MTM 23, HP-RTM resins, with new product XMTR 50 and large tow carbon fiber development with our strategic collaboration with Dralon.
The company states it recently announced collaborations with German companies C-Con Holdings and Dralon, both key steps to increasing the affordability of continuous fibre composites for high volume production.
Cytec says it will exhibit on its stand a part manufactured from unidirectional carbon fibre, utilising an innovative process developed by Cytec which requires virtually no direct labour to produce structural components for serial automotive applications in less than 5 minutes.
Another exhibit is a rapid-cured press-moulded automotive part demonstrating the potential for large volume production.
Cytec will also promote interesting developments in its tooling and process materials range, showcasing its CB1100 ceramic tooling block and its range of compatible ancillaries. CB1100 is a high temperature capable master block for direct tooling, offering low CTE and perfect surface finish.
Cytec will be exhibiting at Hall 8B Stand D05 at the show.
