Bostik introduces a new line of polyurethane sealants for the construction sector
Bostik, the adhesive solutions division of Arkema, has implemented an ambitious development program strengthening its polyurethane (PU) sealants with a particular focus on sealing and bonding applications for the construction market. This new range of products enables Bostik to be well-positioned in this business driven by new construction in emerging countries and steady demand for higher quality solutions.
With state-of-the-art production facilities in Europe and the Asia Pacific region, and innovative technology, Bostik, a longstanding player on the PU market, is developing a new range of products meeting the requirements of both higher technical properties and sustainable performance such as low isocyanates and solvent-free formulations, bubble-free, and outstanding easiness to use for professional and occasional consumers.
This program aims to increase Bostik’s position in its targeted markets of construction in emerging countries.
Marc-Antoine Mallet, Sealing & Bonding Director at Bostik, said: “This ambitious program has helped us address the market’s growth expectations in terms of quality and sustainability for PU products. It also enables us to provide our customers with a unique mix of local presence and outstanding quality standards. Thanks to very positive feedback from the market, particularly in the EMEA region, we’re convinced that this is just the beginning of promising opportunities.”
