Bostik, an Arkema company

Bostik is the Adhesive solutions business line of Arkema group.  Building on its unique set of expertise in materials science, Arkema offers  a portfolio of first-class technologies to address ever-growing demand for new and sustainable materials. With the ambition to become in 2024 a pure player in Specialty Materials, the Group is structured into 3 complementary, resilient and highly innovative segments dedicated to Specialty Materials - Adhesive solutions, Advanced Materials, and Coating Solutions - accounting for some 80% of Group sales, and a well-positioned and competitive Intermediates segment.

Arkema offers cutting-edge technological solutions to meet the challenges of, inter alia, new energies, access to water, recycling, urbanization and mobility, and fosters a permanent dialogue with all its stakeholders. The Group reported sales of €8.7 billion in 2019, and operates in some 55 countries with 20,500 employees worldwide.

A global leader in adhesive technologies 

Bostik is one of the largest adhesive and sealant companies. Worldwide, we employ some 5,000 people in 50 countries across five continents. Our customers come from diverse markets, most notably the industrial manufacturing, construction and consumer sectors. 

We develop smart sealing & bonding solutions for today and tomorrow

We carefully watch market trends and relentlessly work at putting in place pioneering and sustainable solutions around 6 R&D platforms.

Bostik contributes to and benefits from Arkema’s know-how in specialty materials.

Smart innovation

Our smart identity is underpinned by innovation.

We pursue innovation vigorously, applying the latest technological advances to developing ‘smart’ adhesives. Our archives are laden with examples of Bostik technologies that have disrupted markets - from potato starch-based wallpaper paste to elastic attachment adhesive for diapers.

Today, our commitment to innovation is as strong as ever. We innovate with our customers through a global R&D network, comprising three international Smart Technology Centers and 11 regional centers. And we differentiate our business through this investment. That’s why in 2014, 15% of Bostik sales came from products launched in the previous three years.
