Cytec says this demonstrates that it provides a comprehensive service to the composites industry by offering complementary products for all aspects of the composites manufacturing process. As pioneers in technology transfer in resin infusion processing techniques, the company says it can support any project from start to finish, and offer innovative products such as VMS2 and Infuply, both of which can offer improvements in methodology and final laminate quality.

VMS2 is a revolutionary vacuum medium strip which enables vacuum flow on top of wet impregnated zones throughout the entire curing process. Working at temperatures up to 160°C (320°F), it is said to be ideal for thick part component production where resin flow/distribution networks are complex.

Infuply is a perforated release film combined with knitted infusion mesh which aids resin transfer and strips easily from the laminate. Working at temperatures up to 120°C (248°F), it is ideal for manufacture of large component parts and delivers significant labour savings

At the same time and to demonstrate its expertise in prepreg manufacture and innovation in this arena, Cytec will be displaying a selection of structural parts manufactured by some of its prominent clients, all of which are said to demonstrate that the company provides a comprehensive service to the composites industry by offering structural, aesthetic and tooling prepregs and associated ancillaries. Accredited to TS16949 and ISO 9001/AS9100, Cytec is equipped to offer time and cost-saving prepreg solutions for manufacturing components and structures suitable for serial automotive production.

Cytec Industries Inc. is a global provider of advanced materials, process materials and specialty chemical products for aerospace, automotive, wind energy, and extreme-demand applications.  The company’s focus on advanced technology and application expertise aims to allow its customers to adopt more efficient manufacturing approaches and its product portfolio is said to offer engineers greater design flexibility over traditional materials.
