Bostik, a global adhesive leader in the construction, consumer and industrial markets, is aiming to increase its share of the global thermobonding and durable goods market following the expansion of its specialty hot meltsproduct offering.
Following the completion of the acquisition of Prochimir and Fixatti, Bostik is redefining high performance technical hot melts by launching its new offering including pellet, powder, web and film adhesives. With vertically-integrated resin formulation abilities and a unique global supply chain, the organization believes it can play a leading role in the industry.
“Our proud track record in providing customers with safe and sustainable solutions to address their adhesive problems will enable us to continue investing in the right resources and requirements to ensure we strengthen our position as the market leader in the specialty hot melts space.” Says Guillaume Desurmont, SVP Bostik, Head of the Durable Goods Global Business Unit. “We are confident the service we are offering across powders, pellets, webs and films is something the market is missing [and] we are committed to bringing customers the right thermobonding solution and supporting their innovation and reducing the environmental impact through our specialty hot melts.”
With the offering covering many applications in different fields including automotive, building, transfer printing and textiles, Guillaume is confident Bostik’s customers, as well as legacy customers from Prochimir and Fixatti, will reap the benefits.
