WOODLAND PARK, US: Cytec Industries’ engineered materials business has been awarded a long-term agreement to supply certain high-performance, structural composite and adhesive materials for the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd (COMAC) C919 commercial aircraft. The contract with Shanghai Aircraft Manufacturing Co Ltd (SAMC), a subsidiary of COMAC, is for a ten year term and majority of their composite material requirements.

COMAC is developing the single aisle C919 commercial airliner to meet growing air transportation demand in the region and intends to certify the aircraft to western standards for export sales. To date, COMAC has 235 orders for C919. The aircraft is currently in design validation. Cytec’s materials will be used by Shanghai Aircraft Manufacturing Company to build both primary and secondary composite structures for the C919. “This agreement is further evidence of Cytec’s growing position as a supplier of structural composites and adhesives to the global commercial aerospace market,” said Shane Fleming, President and CEO, Cytec.
