Cytec Reveals New Developments In Hyperdurable Powder
Brussels, April 20, 2012 –– Cytec Industries Inc. (NYSE: CYT) is
researching alternatives to fluorine-based architectural
coatings. Roberto Cavalieri, Associate Scientist at Cytec, will
discuss new findings about the use of hyperdurable powder
coating resins as a suitable option at the upcoming
“Architectural Coatings Conference”.
Powder coatings based on superdurable polyester represent the
state-of-the-art for architectural coatings. However, in regions
with high UV exposure such as in the United States, South East
Asia and Middle East, fluorine-based liquid or powder coatings
are the preferred technology. Cytec is developing alternative
routes in order to overcome the relatively higher cost and
application limitations of fluorine-based resins while targeting
powder paints with improved weathering resistance.
The results of Cytec’s research will be presented at 12 pm
during the “Architectural Coatings Conference” on April 25th.
