Published on 2009-09-29. Author : SpecialChem

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Cytec Engineered Materials (CEM), a business unit of Cytec Industries Inc. (NYSE: CYT), will once again be exhibiting at Label Expo. Cytec is a recognized global technology leader for both water-based and solvent-based pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA). A focus at Label Expo will be Cytec's newest launched technology, GELVA® GMR 8020-02 UV curable high-performance PSA. GMR 8020-02 provides outstanding performance such as excellent adhesion to both low surface energy and high surface energy materials while maintaining superior shear properties. GMR 8020-02's performance makes it possible to use in applications that were previously out of reach for standard PSA products, such as membrane switch assemblies, tamper-evident applications and high performance industrial tapes and is being commercially used in both narrow-web and wide-web applications.

In addition to GMR 8020-02 Cytec will also be launching a new product designed for the PSA label market. GELVA® GME 6277-11 is a new APE-free emulsion designed for freezer label applications. Both GMR 8020-02 and GME 6277-11 are part of CEM's new High Performance Industrial Materials (HPIM) product portfolio. The diverse industrial materials product portfolio is comprised of carbon fiber prepregs, resin infusion, structural and pressure sensitive adhesives and sealants that are specifically focused on meeting the needs and escalating performance requirements of the industrial sector.
