Cytec Industries Inc. announced that a new production line for Cyabsorb Cynergy Solutions stabilizers will be set up in Cytec’s manufacturing site in Fengxian, Shanghai, China. The start up of the new production line is expected in the first quarter of 2012. The production of Cyabsorb UV-3853 light stabilizer monomeric hindered amine light stabilizer will also be increased.
“The addition of this production line for Cyabsorb Cynergy Solutions will allow our customers in Asia Pacific, and particularly in China, to get faster supply of our high performance UV stabilizers,” said Domenico Romanino, global business director polymer additives. “The new line will produce, among other products, Cyabsorb Cynergy Solutions V703 stabilizer, the most recent UV stabilization solution for Automotive TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin) compounds. This investment, in conjunction with the already announced manufacturing expansions in Willow Island, WV, represents an important commitment to our customers and to their need for high performance UV protection solutions.”
