With Born2Bond™, Bostik brings a new range of innovative engineering adhesives designed for ‘by the dot’ bonding applications in selected 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 processes as well as more demanding environmental and health and safety regulations. Bostik’s new Born2Bond™ products are designed to address these challenges.
Instant adhesives currently available in the market are formulated using two major technologies – ECA and MECA – both of which can be improved. For too long users have had to deal with the significant drawbacks of those instant adhesives. Following years of R&D, Bostik has developed a process that has allowed them to unlock the full potential of MECA:
- High Performance:
- High elongation
- High impact resistance
- High-temperature resistance
- Gap filling
- Dual cure
- Low odour
- More comfortable manufacturing environment for the workforce
- Ideal for environments where vapour control is difficult
- Uncompromised adhesive performance
- Low bloom, high standards
- Increased productivity
- Higher quality end products
- Reduce finishing cost and product rejection
Born2Bond™ Threadlocking anaerobic adhesives provide single-component, one-stop solutions for all thread-locking requirements, including preventative maintenance. Eliminating the cost and inconvenience of holding extensive inventory, these liquid adhesives fill and seal all voids to achieve a cohesive connection of metal parts that remains fixed even when subjected to extreme vibrations, temperatures or chemical substances.
