Bostik Launches Born2Bond(TM), a Range of New Engineering Adhesives
PARIS, Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

With Born2Bond(TM), Bostik brings a new range of innovative engineering 
adhesives designed for 'by-the-dot' bonding applications in selected 
industries, such as automotive, electronics, luxury packaging, medical devices, 
and MRO.

Today, engineering adhesives are the primary solution for assembling 
smartphones, medical and electronic devices, electric vehicles and luxury 
packs. Engineers are facing critical challenges such as smaller and more 
complex designs, the need for more adaptable and faster curing process as well 
as more demanding environmental and health and safety regulations. Bostik's new 
Born2Bond(TM) products are designed to address these challenges.

The first wave of products launched under the Born2Bond(TM) sub-brand will 
focus on MECA-based instant engineering adhesives, driven by the recent 
acquisitions of Nitta Gelatin - specialists in UV system technology, and 
Afinitica - specialists in cyanoacrylate instant adhesive technology.

Of particular significance are new, patented low-odor formulations, which 
enable a more comfortable manufacturing environment, and low-bloom solutions, a 
critical feature for producers of high-end goods. The comprehensive collection 
of instant engineering adhesives raises the bar for all-round performance and 
are suitable for use in mass production. 

"Born2Bond(TM) will enable our customers to improve efficiencies, increase 
design opportunities and enhance sustainability, making it easier for them to 
manufacture better, safer and more innovative products." said Polivio 
Goncalves, Bostik's Global Market Manager for Engineering Adhesives. "The name 
Born2Bond(TM) reflects our products and our purpose, but also reflects our 
collaborative approach; we're developing these next-generation products in 
association with our customers to ensure we create the solutions they need."

With a global market potential of 7 billion euros, Bostik plans to launch 
additional product offerings within its Born2Bond(TM) portfolio, including 
HM-PUR and other urethane acrylates, providing a comprehensive service for 
evolving application needs.
