Visitors can learn more about how Cytec’s state-of-the-art prepreg, resin system and adhesive technologies reduce weight and increase performance in extreme demand applications.

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

Cytec will also be launching new products and accompanying technologies for the Serial Automotive market.
XMTR50, a 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, which enables the manufacture of components in 3 minutes at 120° C for a 135° C Tg.

MTM 23, 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.
Cytec’s automation manufacturing technology developments demonstrate the cost effectiveness of serial automotive manufacturing through a repeatable and robust automation process while using rapid cure materials.

These automotive focused products come at a time when Cytec is preparing a multi-million dollar investment to expand its Applications Centre, based in Heanor, UK to support the company’s work in collaborating with the OEMs and their supply chains in the development of novel materials, design and processing technologies.

Finally, Cytec 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 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).
