With a tagline of "smart adhesives", many of our customers wonder what exactly makes our adhesives smart.

Gain insight into our capabilities with flame retardants, fragrances, pigmentation and fluorescent agents and how they allow us to call our adhesives "smart". 4 ways Bostik enhances adhesives:

1: Flame retardant:

  • Increase safety
  • Prevent spread of fire and flashover
  • Ability to extinguish small fires

2: Fragrances

  • Mask objectionable odours
  • Convey a desirable scent

3: Pigmentation

  • Extend life of outside applications (UV resistance)
  • Provide (black) colour trim match

4: Fluorescent agents

  • Ensure even coating of adhesive
  • Serve as adhesive marking agent for high speed applications
