Adhesives specialist to feature innovative hot melt and web (fusible textile) products
Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, has announced it will exhibit at Techtextil North America June 20-22, 2017 in Chicago, IL.
Techtextil, North America’s only dedicated show for technical textiles and nonwovens, marks its 14th edition this year. Organized by Messe Frankfurt, the show recently received a Trade Show News Networks’ top 250 U.S. trade show ranking for being a premier show in its industry.
Attracting over 150 exhibitors from 17 countries, Techtextil anticipates a record breaking year. Visitors can also attend the show’s symposium, which features seminars addressing market developments, new technologies and international industry trends.
During the event, Bostik will showcase its smart hot melt and web (fusible textile) adhesives, which are ideal for a variety of textile and nonwoven bonding applications. These products offer broad performance characteristics, enabling manufacturers to address multiple applications with a single solution. Specifically, the diverse product line includes cost effective and high performing selections, improving manufacturing processes and increasing operational efficiencies.
One of Bostik’s highlights at Techtextil will be its hot melt adhesives for mattress assembly, which serve as an alternative to traditional water-based products. These hot melt solutions enable manufacturers to meet production demands and high line speed requirements. Additionally, some of Bostik’s web adhesives at the show offer flame retardancy, contributing to increased consumer safety.
Speaking in advance of the event, Igor Leclere, Business Director for the Americas Industrial Adhesives unit said, “Techtextil gives Bostik the opportunity to showcase our technical solutions for an evolving textile market while meeting with industry professionals.”
