Global adhesives manufacturer to feature Pliogrip™ structural adhesives and silyl modified polymer (SMP) products for mobility applications.

Bostik, the adhesive solutions segment of Arkema, will exhibit innovative bonding and sealing solutions, including its SAF, FIT and Pliogrip™ structural adhesives and silyl modified polymer (SMP) products, which are suited for wide range of mobility applications such as composite and dissimilar material bonding at Work Truck Week 2024 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, March 6-8, 2024.

During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn how:

  • SAF and FIT structural adhesives offer flexibility, thixotropy and durability while helping reduce weight in dissimilar substrates for improved environmental footprint
  • SMP offers high elasticity to enhance durability as a hybrid adhesive and sealant technology for glass, metal and textile substrates
  • Pliogrip™ adhesives provide high-strength bonding with fast fixture time at room temperature to eliminate oven or special equipment needs

Additionally, these solutions provide little to no surface preparation to reduce production complexities. 

“We look forward to showcasing our broad portfolio of adhesives and sealants to attendees and demonstrating how we can improve productivity and performance of their products,” said John Baetz, Regional Mobility Director for Bostik. “This year we are highlighting our range of SMP sealants and our SAF/FIT line of MMA adhesives which are being localized from Europe at our Ashland OH plant.  Ultimate 15, effective for metal bonding, is our second product localized and especially suited for applications in the work truck market.”
