Bostik to Exhibit Smart Adhesive Solutions at Aircraft Interiors Expo

Adhesives specialist to exhibit in Hamburg, Germany, April 10-12

Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, announced it will exhibit for the first time at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg, Germany, April 10 – 12, 2018.

Since its inception in 2000, AIX has been the world’s leading event for the aircraft interiors market, serving as an international forum for professionals in all aspects of the passenger airline industry. As part of the Passenger Experience Conference, this year’s AIX trade fair is expected to draw more than 18,000 visitors from around the globe and feature over 550 exhibitors.

A first-time exhibitor, Bostik will present its broad portfolio of film, liquid and web adhesive technologies for interior wall panels, floors, doors, seats, decorative fixtures, laminates, thermal and acoustical insulation systems and beyond. Stand visitors will be able to talk with Bostik staff about their unique adhesive needs and learn how Bostik can develop custom formulations that create the perfect bond for each application.

Among the products displayed on Bostik’s stand will be the company’s world-renowned flame retardant web and film adhesives. Designed with strength, durability and safety in mind, they satisfy the most stringent FST (flame, smoke and toxicity) requirements in the aircraft interiors industry. Bostik’s flame retardant webs provide excellent adhesion for skin-to-core bonding, decorative fabric construction, and upholstery and layered laminates. In addition, they can help aircraft manufacturers increase productivity, extend product shelf life and reduce energy and operating costs. Bostik has applied its decades of knowledge experience in the aerospace industry to create easy-to-handle film adhesives for aircraft interiors. A smart choice for decorative laminate bonding, contact adhesives, veneer attachment and foam bonding, Bostik film adhesives also help manufacturers control consistency.

“It’s a privilege to have our first stand at AIX,” said Senior Business Development Manager Shawn Cissell in advance of the show. “It gives us the opportunity to bring our technologies to a global audience and show that Bostik adhesive solutions provide the right bonding solution for customers all over the world. We’re looking forward to making new connections at AIX and helping them with all their adhesive needs.”
