Published on 2007-01-30. Author : SpecialChem

West Paterson, NJ -- Cytec Industries Inc. (NYSE:CYT) launched two new energy curable resins for a broad range of industrial metal applications.

EBECRYL® 3213 epoxy acrylate is designed to provide outstanding adhesion to metal substrates for general pipe and tubing applications. UV/EB cured formulations containing EBECRYL 3213 epoxy acrylate are characterized by exceptional hardness, durability, corrosion resistance, and superior chemical resistance.

EBECRYL® 1701-TP20 acrylated acrylic is a copolymer with great flexibility, gloss and weatherability, and provides excellent adhesion to cold rolled steel and aluminum. EBECRYL 1701-TP20 acrylated acrylic has been specially formulated for packaging applications, including can coatings and metal decorating inks, and for clear coatings for general industrial applications.

These new products join Cytec's growing portfolio of energy curable resins for metal coatings which include EBECRYL® 885 polyester triacrylate and EBECRYL® 3708 modified Bisphenol-A epoxy diacrylate.

EBECRYL 885 polyester triacrylate is an economical resin with high flexibility and excellent abrasion resistance. EBECRYL 3708 modified Bisphenol-A epoxy diacrylate offers a unique combination of increased flexibility and toughness, and excellent adhesion to most metal substrates.

EPA Qualification Helps Cytec Speed Eco-friendly Products to the Marketplace

In 2006, Cytec was named as the first company to qualify for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Sustainable Futures program which includes approval for a shortened regulatory review process for certain new products. As a result, the EPA's Premanufacturing Notice review period for Cytec products assessed as low overall risk will be halved from the minimum of 90 days to only 45 days, thus increasing the speed at which eco-friendly products can reach the marketplace.
