Cytec Industries, a manufacturer of advanced composite and process materials, will be showcasing its technology developments and investments for automotive and tooling applications at SAMPE Baltimore 2015 that takes place from 18-21 May in Baltimore, MD.

The company will promote the advances it and its supply chain partners have made towards enabling high rate CFRP parts manufacture for serial automotive applications in automation, rapid-cure prepreg and HP-RTM, press-moulding and industrial textiles.

“We are working with the automotive supply chain to develop materials, processes and application engineering to increase the affordability of continuous fibre composites for high volume production,” said Glade Gunther, USA based Business Development Manager for Cytec.

DForm fabric tooling prepreg

Cytec will promote its innovative DForm fabric tooling prepreg, which combines short fibre conformability with the handling and laminate characteristics of a conventional long fibre composite.

Saving 75% of lay-up and debulk time and offering four times greater output from current lay-up staff, DForm Fabric Tooling prepreg will revolutionize the composite tooling manufacture while bringing a significant cost reduction, the manufacturer believes.

Visitors will be able to find out more about the product by attending two sessions, during which the company’s experts will demonstrate the benefits of DForm Fabric Tooling prepreg. These will be held at the company’s boot on 19 and 20 May.


Cytec provides advanced composite and process materials for aerospace, automotive, wind energy, motorsport, marine, mass transportation and other demanding applications.

Cytec’s product portfolio supports the end-to-end manufacturing of composite parts and includes tooling, fibre, prepregs, resin systems, vacuum bagging, adhesives and surfacing films.
