FOCUS ON: Cytec Increases Capacity for Waterborne Alkyds in the Americas

Cytec Industries Inc. has announced plans to increase the capacity for RESYDROL® water-based alkyds at the company’s Wallingford, CT, production facility. The new capacity will increase Cytec’s ability to respond to customer needs in North America. Current plans are for the new capacity to come on-stream during the second quarter of 2009.

“This expansion will further strengthen Cytec’s position as the leader in water-based alkyd resins globally,” said Frank Aranzana, vice president of Cytec Surface Specialties.

“The additional capacity in the Americas will meet the growing need in the architectural and industrial maintenance markets for water-based products that meet the new volatile organic compounds regulations,” Aranzana added. “The new production unit further strengthens our global offering and allows our customers in the Americas to benefit from a broader product portfolio and better service.”
