(CYT) will present at the International Bauxite, Alumina and Aluminium Society 2015 Symposium in Suzhou, China Nov. 25 – Nov. 27.Qi Dai, Cytec Business Development Director, will present New Red Mud Flocculants for High Silica Bauxites at the Symposium which will focus on the company’s new CYFLOC® Si-7000 series of red mud flocculants.  As the quality of bauxite reserves continues to decrease due to increasing levels of reactive silica, these flocculants have shown a unique ability to settle bauxite residues containing well over 7 wt% silica with excellent performance.  The results will be presented to demonstrate the ability of this new polymer to handle the increasing silica content in the bauxite while maintaining or even improving the current operations in alumina refineries.Joe Chou, Regional Sales Director Asia Pacific, says “As the specialty chemical technology leader in the Alumina industry, Cytec is constantly challenged to develop advance technology to address the market needs.  The new CYFLOC® Si-7000 series is one of the programs to solve the decrease bauxite quality issue that many refineries find around the world.”Cytec has been introducing premiere specialty chemicals products for the Alumina industry for the past 40 years such as high performance flocculant HXPAMS and the EPA Presidential Green Challenge Award winning MAX HT® reagent for sodalite scale control.  Today, Cytec stands as the innovation leader in the industry and has a full product line including flocculants, scale inhibitors, crystal growth modifiers, defoamers, dewatering aids, bauxite handling aids, auto precipitation reduction aids, humate removal aids, liquor filtration aids and dust control agents.Visit us on the web at’s vision is to deliver specialty material and chemical technologies beyond our customers’ imagination.
