Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, will exhibit a range of innovative bonding and sealing solutions, including its methyl methacrylate (MMA), silyl-modified polymers (SMP) and engineering adhesives ideal for a wide range of marine applications at this year’s IBEX tradeshow at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL on September 28 – 30th, 2021.
As an industry trade event for professionals working in the recreation marine industry, IBEX offers its attendees over 700+ exhibits in the exhibit halls, outdoor display space, and on the IBEX Docks. It also offers unparalleled training and education from industry experts and associations. It provides a targeted event for marine industry OEM and suppliers, aftermarket manufacturers, and service providers.
At the show, Bostik’s featured solutions will include MMA adhesives, which not only have a fast cure time, but they also allow manufacturers to skip the surface preparation steps required when using epoxies or other adhesives for hull bonding, further reducing production time. MMAs also resist wave impact and can be applied vertically with no sagging. We will also showcase our SMP products, which are specifically formulated to withstand harsh marine conditions. Some additional benefits of SMPs include fast curing and resistance to yellowing under UV rays. Finally, we’ll exhibit our Born2Bond™ structural engineering adhesives, which offer high-performance adhesion on a variety of surfaces and in a wide range of environments.
Speaking in advance of the show, Don Kitchen, Bostik’s National Sales Manager for Durable Goods Adhesives said, “Bostik is excited to be part of IBEX this year and appreciates the chance to educate industry professionals on our extensive product portfolio. The event provides a valuable opportunity to learn about the market’s needs. We look forward to the chance to discuss how we can meet those needs and help create future innovations in the marine industry.”
