The company continue to refine and expand its portfolio of thermoset and thermoplastic composite materials, and compatible process consumables to fulfil the growing needs of all markets.

These products and technologies are a reflection of the company’s focus on value-added innovation. They  provide solutions to customers in Cytec’s key markets and include:

  • Snap cure resin systems and process technology for the serial automotive industry, which will be demonstrated on the Cytec stand with a pressed rear bulkhead cap component.
  • New high temperature ceramic materials which have been developed specifically for use in the Motorsport industry. These are designed for applications such as lightweight heat shields and ducts operating at temperature of up to 800°C for short periods.
  • MTM348FR which is 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.
  • Vac-Pak E7760W, a release film ideally suited to aerospace applications and a suitable alternative to other, higher elongation and PVF films. Vac-Pak E7760W is a high modulus film suitable for use with all commonly used resin systems up to 204°C and works particularly well with ATL/AFP applications. It is excellent for mildly contoured or flat parts as it lies flat and smooth with very few wrinkling issues when compared with other, more pliable, films.
  • Cytec's 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).
