Arkema announces a project for Bostik to acquire Prochimir, a company specializing in high performance thermobonding adhesive films. This acquisition would enable Bostik to broaden its offering of solvent-free thermobonding solutions earmarked for many fast-growing industrial applications in the automotive, construction, textile and medical markets. It would position Bostik among world-leading players in thermobonding films, and is part of Bostik’s strategy to expand through acquisitions targeting leading technologies in a market that remains fragmented.
Thanks to its technical expertise and capacity for innovation, Prochimir develops and markets high performance thermobonding films, used in a growing number of applications in the automotive, construction, textile and healthcare sectors. These environmentally sound solutions ensure excellent adhesion on materials, hence addressing many bonding issues.
