Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, announced it will exhibit innovative marine bonding solutions at the International Boat Builders Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) in Tampa, FL October 1 – 3, 2019.
North America’s largest technical event for the recreational marine industry, IBEX is sponsored by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and brings together industry professionals from around the globe. In addition to offering educational opportunities where attendees can learn about market trends and challenges, IBEX features a vast exhibit hall where over 700 exhibitors showcase the latest in boat building innovations.
At this year’s event, Bostik will feature its full line of marine adhesives and sealants designed to address key bonding needs for today’s manufacturers. Offering primerless application and solvent-free formulation, these products improve operational efficiencies while increasing worker safety.
Additionally, Bostik’s line of methyl methacrylate structural adhesives will be on display at IBEX. Featuring high elongation and excellent environmental resistance, these structural adhesives are ideal for bonding dissimilar substrates, including metals, composites and plastics. In addition to increasing production speeds, they are a lightweight, flexible option that yield improved boat performance and aesthetics.
Speaking in advance of the show, Bostik’s Product Line Manager Jake Krause said, “We are excited to be at this year’s IBEX and look forward to speaking with other industry professionals about their marine bonding needs and finding a solution together.”
