West Paterson, NJ -- Cytec Industries Inc. (NYSE:CYT) announced that, effective October 1, 2006, it will increase prices for its entire range of CRYLCOAT ® powder coating resins marketed in Europe, Middle East and Africa, following the increases implemented in the second and third quarters of 2006.

Further escalation of feedstock prices is forcing the company to increase the price of its resins by another 0.15 €/kg of all CRYLCOAT powder coating resins shipped and invoiced after September 30, 2006. The company keeps doing its utmost to compensate for these cost increases through drastic cost saving initiatives, however, these efforts alone are not enough to provide a reasonable return for these specialty products.
