Born2Bond is a new engineering adhesive from Bostik designed for 'by-the-dot' applications in industries such as automotive, electronics, luxury packaging, medical devices, and MRO.
Today, engineering adhesives are the primary solution for assembling smartphones, medical and electronic devices, electric vehicles and luxury packs. Engineers are facing critical challenges such as smaller and more complex designs, the need for more adaptable and faster curing process as well as more demanding environmental and health and safety regulations. Born2Bond products are designed to address these challenges.
The first wave of products launched under the Born2Bond sub-brand will focus on MECA-based instant engineering adhesives, driven by the recent acquisitions of Nitta Gelatin — specialists in UV system technology, and Afinitica — specialists in cyanoacrylate instant adhesive technology.
Of particular significance are new, patented low-odour formulations, which enable a more comfortable manufacturing environment, and low-bloom solutions, a critical feature for producers of high-end goods. The comprehensive collection of instant engineering adhesives raises the bar for all-round performance and are suitable for use in mass production.
With a global market potential of €7 billion euros, Bostik plans to launch additional product offerings within its Born2Bond portfolio, including HM-PUR and other urethane acrylates, providing a comprehensive service for evolving application needs.
