Cytec to report progress on serial automotive technology roadmap

Cytec Industries will be promoting the progress made since last year on the company’s serial automotive technology roadmap. Cytec Industries will be exhibiting at the upcoming Composites Europe Show from 7-9 October 2014 in Dusseldorf, Germany, promoting the progress made since last year on the company’s serial automotive technology roadmap.

This will include updates on rapid cure thermoset prepregs, featuring new products including MTM 23; HP-RTM resins, with new product XMTR 50; large tow carbon fibre development with the company’s strategic collaboration with Dralon; and automation technologies.

Efficient and innovative

The company’s recently announced collaborations with German companies C-Con Holdings and Dralon are key steps to increasing the affordability of continuous fibre composites for high volume production and further establishing Cytec as partner of choice to the Automotive OEMs and Tier 1 Suppliers, Cytec reports.

It will exhibit a part manufactured from uni-directional carbon fibre, utilising an innovative process developed by Cytec, which is said to require virtually no direct labour to produce structural components for serial automotive applications in less than five minutes.

This component is representative of the complex geometries that the automotive sector is used to working with, particularly when looking at the body in white structures, the company reports.

Promoting developments

Another exhibit is a rapid-cured press-moulded automotive part demonstrating the potential for large volume production.

Cytec will also promote interesting developments in its tooling and process materials range, including its CB1100 ceramic tooling block and its range of compatible ancillaries. CB1100 is a high temperature capable master block for direct tooling, offering low CTE and perfect surface finish.

Another development is the Process Materials value added kitting service, which is said to offer customers the opportunity to enhance their manufacturing capacity while ensuring component quality consistency.
