Adhesive specialist will have three of its most innovative construction systems on display at the world’s leading specialty materials library and consultancy. Their selection follows the firm’s continued focus on securing new opportunities in large scale commercial construction projects.
Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for construction, consumer and industrial markets, has announced that three of its specialty materials have been selected for inclusion at Material ConneXion.
Headquartered in New York City, Material ConneXion is the world’s leading specialty materials library and consultancy, curated by a global team of materials scientists, which focuses on inspiring creative professionals with their next design idea.
“We offer the architect and design community a multitude of innovative installation systems that are truly improving building construction methods,” declared Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing and Business Development. “We’re delighted these innovations are being showcased at Material ConneXion, which is a recognized source of architecturally-endorsed products… located in the epicenter of world design, New York City.”
The three Bostik products on display will be:
Dimension® RapidCure™ Glass-Filled Grout: A patented, water-based formula that contains reflective, recycled, micro-glass beads and a translucent urethane binder that reflect light and allow it to pass through grout joints and into the tile itself. This creates a variety of aesthetic effects, including unique three-dimensional properties within clear glass tile installations.
Bosti-Set™ Gauged Porcelain Panel Adhesive & Sound Reduction Membrane: A single-component, revolutionary specialty building adhesive, which has redefined how to install thin porcelain tile panels. Projects that specify gauged porcelain panels can now be installed within half the time with less material and labor. Additional benefits include: Built-in sound abatement, vibration resistance and crack protection. This adhesive also contains Bostik’s proprietary Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology which is made of recycled rubber particles to ensure the correct adhesive membrane thickness is maintained behind the tile and improves acoustic performance.
Ultra-Set® SingleStep2™ High Performance Adhesive, Moisture Control & Sound Reduction Membrane: A single component adhesive that is most commonly specified in high rise, residential tower construction. It too contains Bostik’s proprietary Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology. This breakthrough installation offers the ultimate in sound protection and accelerates the flooring installation process by eliminating the need to install cork or rubber sound reduction underlayment products.
