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.”
