WEST PATERSON, N.J. - Cytec Industries Inc. plans a new production unit to manufacture RADCURE™ epoxy and urethane acrylates at the company's Fengxian-site production facility near Shanghai, China. The additional capacity should shorten the supply-chain process and increase Cytec's ability to respond to customer applications and technology needs in the region. Current plans are for the plant to come on-stream during the first half of 2008.

In addition, Cytec is nearing completion of the expansion of its production facility for RADCURE UV-curing resins in North Augusta, Ga. This expansion will significantly increase the capacity of monomer production in the Americas, complementing its current production in the United States. The expansion is expected to come on-stream during 2007.
