February 20, 2015 – Woodland Park, NJ - Cytec Industries Inc. (CYT) announced today that it will present its phosphine gas fumigation technologies at the upcoming 2015 GEAPS Exchange in St. Louis, MO February 21nd -24th.Cytec’s phosphine gas technology offers fast and effective solutions to protect food and other commodities with significant advantages over traditional fumigants. Cytec’s innovative fumigation products ECO2FUME® fumigant gas and VAPORPH3OS® phosphine fumigant have proven to be cost-effective and generate no waste or residues.  They are non-reactive with water and are delivered into fumigation structures as diluted mixtures so as to provide a product form that is a non-flammable gaseous source of phosphine.  These EPA approved products are easy to use and provide the ability to quickly achieve precise control of phosphine concentrations within minutes or hours rather than days.As a result of the long history of use of phosphine in insect management of grains, worker safety, health, and environmental practices for handling phosphine have been well-entrenched and well developed in the industry.  Phosphine has a distinctive odor even at ultra-low levels which provides warning mechanism for workers and by standers.  The monitoring of phosphine is also made easy by the wide spread availability of inexpensive, reliable, accurate and truly portable detection equipment that can be used to ensure workers and bystanders are not exposed during the entire fumigation process. Mike DePalo, Regional Sales Manager Cytec Phosphine Gases, says “The grain industry has the equipment, knowledge and experience already in place to ensure the continued safe and effective use of phosphine.  The benefits of cylinderized phosphine fumigant technologies offer the market a critical tool for driving improvements in insect management practice as well as compliance with ever increasing safety and environmental regulations.”At GEAPS, Cytec will be partnering with Horn Technologies Inc, the manufacturer of the unique Horn Diluphos System™ which allows on-site blending of Cytec’s VAPORPH3OS® phosphine fumigant with ambient air.  For more information please visit Cytec at GEAPS in Booth #235 or on our website.Cytec’s vision is to deliver specialty material and chemical technologies beyond our customers’ imagination.
