Cytec selected to support Bombardier Aerospace aircraft programs

Cytec Industries (NYSE:CYT) announced today that its Engineered Materials division has been awarded contracts to supply carbon fiber composite materials for major primary structures on Bombardier's new CSeries and Learjet 85 aircraft programs. Cytec was also awarded a contract to supply a suite of advanced materials for current Bombardier aircraft programs. Cytec expects the awards to generate revenues of approximately $800 million over the next ten years.

As the world's third largest civil aircraft manufacturer, Bombardier Aerospace high-performance products and services set the standard of excellence in several markets, including commercial and business aircraft. Bombardier is leveraging a spectrum of Cytec Engineered Materials' advanced composite material solutions to support its aircraft programs by using Cytec's technologies to meet the aircraft's advanced design requirements and support Bombardier's high-tech manufacturing processes.

"We pride ourselves on the ability to deliver advanced material solutions that address complex and varied customer requirements," states Bill Wood, President of Cytec Engineered Materials. "We congratulate Bombardier for their intelligent innovation in the use of advanced composite materials and manufacturing technologies."

CYCOM® 890, a liquid resin infusion system with excellent hot/wet properties, will be used for the manufacturing of structural elements of Bombardier's CSeries aircraft wing. CYCOM 890's performance characteristics widen the resin infusion processing window and reduce fabrication risk of large and complex structures. This material is manufactured at Cytec Engineered Materials' Wrexham, UK facility.

Bombardier Aerospace also selected additional materials from Cytec's comprehensive portfolio for the Learjet 85 aircraft program's primary and secondary structures.
