The 3rd International Converting Exhibition in Orlando, Florida was a great success this year. Bostik was honored to be able to partner with and participate with ICE as they delivered valuable education to those in converting industries. During the three-day tradeshow, we connected with industry leaders, saw the latest converting trends and technologies, as well as connected with new and existing converting professionals. ICE continues to grow each year and has quickly become the largest converting-focused show in North America.
Both visitors and exhibitors at the show were able to attend daily seminars, see the latest innovations in converting, and meet with numerous suppliers, such as Bostik, to discuss new and emerging technologies.
From hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives to water based or solvent based adhesives, visitors showed interest in a wide range of Bostik’s offerings.
However, Bostik’s web adhesives seem to steal the show! Attendees were drawn to Bostik’s booth by the display of rolled web products, asking questions and learning how our polyester and polyamide products can support their application needs. Our web adhesive products are produced in a nonwoven form and handle like fabric, which facilitates both intermittent and continuous processes. Our web adhesives can bond to numerous substrates including:
Bostik’s web adhesives can increase productivity, offer low environmental impact, make better utilization of plant space, increase product shelf life and save on energy and operating costs. Webs cover consistent usage control while optimizing weight-to-performance criteria. All of Bostik’s web adhesives are VOC free, simplifying processes and providing a safer alternative for adhesion.
Why use web adhesives?
Web adhesives have multiple applications including automotive applications, aerospace, industrial textiles, and healthcare.
We offer both fire retardant and non-fire retardant webs. Fire retardant, hot melt web adhesives are made from hot melt adhesives converted into a thin, web like film. These products offer superior adhesive usage control to manufacturers, helping to prevent overspray and waste from spray and film applications.
Bostik’s non fire retardant webs offer the same control advantages and functionality as the fire retardant webs, without the fire retardancy for less stringent applications. These types of web adhesives come in both polyester and polyamide adhesive webs.
Web adhesives were just one of many technologies inquired about at ICE USA 2015. If you weren’t able to join us in Orlando for the tradeshow but would like more information on any of our converter solutions, feel free to drop us a line.
