Cytec Industries Inc. celebrated the successful expansion of CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS stabilizers that are produced at the new Polymer Additives production line in Fengxian, Shanghai, China. The Fengxian facility started operations in April 2012 to shorten delivery time for Cytec's proprietary, high performance UV stabilizers to the fast growing Asia Pacific market.
The CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS product line and CYASORB THT light stabilizers protect plastics and coatings from harmful UV light when exposed outdoors and increases service life. They protect the physical properties of products, as well as appearance properties, such as color and gloss, in a variety of applications. Both product lines are proprietary and are covered by one or more patents within Cytec's intellectual property portfolio.
The latest CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS stabilizer product was specifically designed for the Asia Pacific automotive industry. "We invested heavily in bringing the latest proprietary and patented technologies to China, and we are pleased to continue introducing further solutions that address the specific needs of Asia Pacific market," said François Jacob, global marketing director for Additive Technologies. "The development of new high performance stabilizer systems is required to support the plastic industry to satisfy the demand for higher levels of performance and new requirements."
