Cytec at CAMX 2015: to Present Range of Composite Materials

Published on 2015-10-23. Author : SpecialChem

Woodland Park, NJ -- At CAMX 2015 Cytec Industries Inc. (CYT) will be presenting information on its end to end composite portfolio, including structural and tooling prepregs, resin infusion systems and structural adhesives that are complemented by a range of process materials available as roll stock or tailored kits.

“Our ability to offer the full spectrum of fibers, composite materials, adhesives and ancillaries, together with our Application Engineering expertise, gives Cytec the opportunity to partner with our customers and offer fully encompassing solutions through the integration of design, materials and processes. Our technology team continues to develop materials technologies that address the need for performance, affordability and rate in a range of industries including serial automotive, aerospace and defense,” said Carmelo LoFaro, Cytec Chief Technology Officer.

Specific focus will be put on:
• Aerospace: Cytec’s out of autoclave (OOA) product collection include vacuum bag only (VBO) prepregs such as CYCOM® 5320-1 and MTM® 45-1, and the primary structure ready PRISM® EP2400 resin system. Cytec OOA products are an essential element in reducing non-recurring and recurring manufacturing costs.
• Automotive: Cytec’s new rapid cure resin systems for hot compression molding of tailored prepreg flat blanks with MTM® 710 and MTM® 23 as well as HP-RTM with XMTR50TM.
• Tooling: Cytec will promote its innovative DForm Fabric Tooling prepreg, which was launched earlier this year. Cytec believes DForm will transform composite tooling manufacture by reducing tool layup times by 75%, and making composite tooling more competitive than ever against metal tooling.
• Process Materials: Cytec will promote its value added vacuum bagging process materials kitting service out of its USA sites. Kitting brings great benefits to part manufacturers such as reduced labor cost, total production time and waste as well as improved process control and therefore part quality and repeatability.
Visitors can learn more about Cytec’s products on the stand as demonstrated by:
• A complex contour fuselage frame, manufactured using Cytec’s PRISM® EP2450 resin system and CYCOM® 7720 RTM preform binder.
• A structural fairing cover cured out of autoclave and manufactured from Cytec’s CYCOM® 5320-1 prepreg, FM® 309-1M adhesive and Surface Master® 905.
• A complex part manufactured from uni-directional carbon fiber, utilizing an innovative automated preforming process which requires virtually no direct labor and is capable of producing parts such as structural automotive components for body-in-white structures with a sub 5 minutes takt time.
• Two identical composite tools – one manufactured using Cytec traditional epoxy tooling prepreg and the other one manufactured using Cytec’s new DForm Fabric Tooling epoxy prepreg.
• A selection of vacuum bagging process materials, in roll and kit formats.

Cytec will present 5 papers during the technical conference:
• Tue. October 27| 4:00 PM - 4:25 PM | D172 - Yiqiang Zhao: Non-Chromated Water Based Primers for Aerospace Structural Bonding Applications
• Wed. October 28| 3:00 PM - 3:25 PM | D171 – Anthony Hinman: Resin Infusion for Highly Tailored, Weight Optimized, Complex Contour, Primary Structure for Rotorcraft
• Wed. October 28| 3:30 PM - 3:55 PM | D171 – Chris Ridgard: Process Selection and Optimization for Out-of-Autoclave Prepreg Structures
• Wed. October 28| 4:00 PM - 4:25 PM | D171 – Anthony Hinman: Toolside Surface Quality of Out-of-Autoclave Versus Autoclave Laminates
• Thu. October 29| 4:30 PM - 4:55 PM | D161 – Jon Grigson: Practical Use of DForm® Fabric Tooling Prepreg – Epoxy and BMI
