Bostik has gained recognition by consumers, who have voted Fix & Flash “Product of the year 2019” in the “repair glue” category.


“Less than 9 months after the launch of Fix & Flash, we are pleased and honored to be given this recognition, a guarantee of quality and performance” states Vincent Legros, Bostik Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We constantly strive to develop smart solutions that are innovative, durable and user-friendly. This recognition is testimony that our products offer a genuine “plus” to our consumers and users by making life easier for them. That is our ambition and our greatest satisfaction.”


Building on over 125 years’ experience at the service of industry and construction, Bostik’s latest repair glue Fix & Flash for the first time makes a cutting-edge professional technology available to the general public, for small repairs, decoration and crafts. A break with the traditional world of bonding, Fix & Flash uses LED light to ensure fast curing, on any surface and any material. Simple, easy to apply and rechargeable, it delivers impressive results in terms of effectiveness.

Fix & Flash makes for effective bonding on all surfaces. After the glue has been applied, the bond may be repositioned for 5 seconds before instant bonding is activated by means of an LED light. The glue remains clear, with no yellowing, for a flawless finish.


“Halfway between cyanoacrylate and multipurpose glues, with Fix & Flash we have succeeded in creating a unique positioning for an all-round glue and in forging strong links with our users” explains Sarah Couderchet, Head of Bostik’s DIY France Group, “and this is just the beginning: we intend to continue our development in the French market by providing a complete range of solutions for the general public.” Bostik also plans to market Fix & Flash in the United Kingdom and in Germany in early 2019, before rolling it out in other regions of the world.
