Tooling products: Cyclics® Formlite™, Cyclics® C11, Cyclics® C65.
Nanocomposites – The addition of nano-scale clays to CBT resin has resulted in a stable nano-composite structure that produced a system with higher thermal stability, strength, stiffness, dimensional stability and barrier to solvent and gas penetration. CBT resin is uniquely effective in creating nano-materials because it allows the tiny nano-sized particles to easily disperse in the molten CBT resin and remain evenly distributed throughout the resin as it re-solidifies.
Strategic Partners and Alliances:
Cyclics has alliances with Ahlstrom Glassfibre Oy, Alcan Composites, BASF, Davy Process Technology, Dow Automotive, Rohm & Haas and The P Group.
