October 29, 2015 – Cytec Industries Inc. (NYSE: CYT) Formulated Resins unveils CONAP® performance adhesives for liquid filtration, an extraordinary family of filtration adhesives that precisely responds to address the performance, processing and production considerations prevalent in many microporous membrane and bonding relationships. CONAP filtration adhesives work in concert with our customers’ specific microporous membrane technologies to allow application-specific flux, recovery rate and processability targets to be achieved. “There are many variations of filtration bonding solutions in the market today,” said Shirley Go, Global Marketing Manager for Formulated Resins. “We recognize that it is not possible to formulate a universal adhesive for all membrane applications. We aim to provide customers with tailored solutions by pinpointing their flat sheet bonding or hollow fiber potting requirements and working with them to achieve specific objectives so the adhesives work the way the customers intend.”    Using our technology in filtration and separation along with a strong working knowledge of current filtration media and techniques, Cytec liquid filtration adhesives are able to construct the optimum connection between your desired operational parameters and end-use applications by delivering solid, secure answers for:
  • Osmotic blistering observed along bond line, leading to leaks and bacteria growth
  • Excessively wide glue line that spreads, resulting in diminished active surface area and affects flux rate
  • Rheology limitations of adhesive / potting that influence the efficiency of production processes.
Cytec’s technological contributions to this industry are of growing importance around the world, especially in regions where access to clean water is scarce. “Through our patented technology, Cytec overcame the filtration industry’s historic osmotic blister issue in regards to its reverse osmosis membranes,” explained Rick Jordan, Global Technical Services and Development Manager. “By eliminating the blisters, we make the membranes safer because we minimize the risk of bacteria poisoning associated with blistered filter membranes.”Formulated Resins offers a range of performance adhesives, potting and encapsulation resin systems, and fast-curing conformal coating resins.  To learn how Cytec's formulation science can help optimize your specific filtration application requirements, visit www.cytec.com/fr/filtration.Cytec’s vision is to deliver specialty material and chemical technologies beyond our customers’ imagination.
