Industrial designers and engineers face the challenge of new applications that require paying attention to material’s weight, strength, and cost. The rapid development of alternative energy and other industrial markets is driving a new demand for technology creators to construct and design these applications. So, a recently formed group at Cytec Engineered Materials, Tempe, Ariz., addresses the growing need for advanced industrial materials. This new group, led by company VP Steve Stone, uses the technologies in the Cytec portfolio across multiple industrial markets, such as wind, alternative energy, construction, marine, and high performance automotive.
“Engineering needs and technology are bridging the aerospace and industrial segments,” says Stone. “There is an increased use of composites and adhesives in both markets and increasing demands for technology and higher performance.” The firm’s product and service portfolio is comprised of company prepregs, resin infusion, adhesives, and gel coats and top coats focused on meeting the needs and escalating performance requirements of the industrial sector.
