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 sustainable product offering. 

Following the completion of the acquisition of Prochimir and Fixatti, Bostik is redefining high performance technical hot melts by launching its Specialty Hot Melt offering including pellet, powder, web and film adhesives. With the vertical integration in copolyester and copolyamide resins and a unique global supply chain the organisation believes it can play a leading role in the industry.

Guillaume Desurmont, SVP Bostik, Head of the Durable Goods Global Business Unit, said: “We are seeing growing demand for more sustainable products, expanded product offerings and supply chain resilience across the various industries our customers operate in around the world.

“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. 

“We are confident the service we are offering across powders, pellets, webs and films is something the market is missing. 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.

He said: “Bostik, Prochimir and Fixatti have built up a loyal customer base around the world, and we are certain our full suite of offerings will continue to benefit them. The new range of web, films, powders and coatings is specifically adapted to each customer’s need, and they can be assured we are working in a sustainable way, too, with cleaner production processes and the use of recyclable raw materials.

“Following the acquisitions of Prochimir and Fixatti over the last two years, we are not only in a position to offer customers the best of what all three organisations have to offer, but also improve on the quality of product and service they receive. We also employ some of the most talented people in the industry, and these acquisitions have not only enhanced that, but also helped us take a key early step on the road to achieving our target. 

“Asia is a key market for us, and having combined the strengths of all three organisations, we will be able to better serve our customers’ evolving needs and provide them with new, innovative thermo-bonding solutions at a local, regional and global scale. We look forward to showcasing the new offerings at Cinte Techtextil China in the coming weeks, where we aim to also create new, and build upon existing, relationships with attendees.”
