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

Cytec will highlight MTM 348FR, a new and unique versatile curing epoxy resin prepreg matrix designed for railway applications. 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.

The company will also showcase its newest corrosion-inhibiting, modified-epoxy bonding primer, BR252.  The product is specifically formulated to address emerging environmental, health and safety standards. This product 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.

Finally, Cytec will promote its Extra Wide High Temp Nylon Film and co-ex film capability, 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).
