Cytec Industries will feature a range of advanced composite and process material at SAMPE’s Spring Conference in Long Beach, California May 6-9, 2013. Visitors can learn more about Cytec’s composite materials and associated businesses at Booth I11.

The booth will have information about Cytec’s state-of-the-art prepreg and resin systems, including CYCOM®, LTM®, MTM® and HTM® in- and out-of-autoclave products, and PRISM® resin infusion systems, as well as SURFACEMASTER® advanced surfacing films and the BR® water-based primer. Cytec will also showcase a wide range of premier vacuum bagging consumables for aerospace and industrial markets.

Cytec will feature a single-piece air extractor (hood scoop) used on General Motors’ 2012MY Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Manufactured by deBotech Inc. using Cytec’s MTM®57 series carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy prepreg, the air extractor was formed on Cytec’s low temperature molding LTM®12 tooling material. MTM 57 was chosen for its exceptional resin clarity and ability to produce an aesthetically-pleasing, rigid structure directly from the mold, with very minimal reworking requirements.

Cytec will also showcase its newest corrosion-inhibiting, modified-epoxy bonding primer, BR® 252. The product is specifically formulated to address emerging environmental, health and safety standards. BR 252 provides excellent adhesion and corrosion protection and mechanical properties equal to solvent-based primer systems. It is compatible with most 121°C – 177°C curing adhesives and has a wide curing window and long out time.
