Three experts from Bostik’s Global Nonwoven Business Unit (GNW) will present at INDEX:

• Heidi Wang, Bostik GNW Regional Market Manager, Asia Pacific, will be one of three global market experts who will discuss changes occurring in the disposable hygiene market as well as the latest trends in technology, materials and processing.
• Paul Andrew, Bostik GNW Market Manager, Europe, Middle East and North Africa, will present on approaches, testing and performance considerations in reducing fluff in cores, and various approaches to the complexities involved in thinner diaper cores.
• Pablo Lean Escobar, Bostik GNW Market Manager, Americas, will shed light on consumer perceptions of disposable hygiene products and the key role adhesives can play in achieving softness, breathability, wetness indications and reduced odor.

“Our theme at INDEX is Your Challenges, Our Solutions. We are inviting disposable hygiene product companies to bring their performance and operational issues to Booth #2138,” said Courtney Korselt, Global Communications and Insights Manager, Bostik GNW. “Bostik will leverage our extensive range of advanced adhesives – including new adhesives – and our industry expertise to create innovative, flexible solutions for each challenge.”

Bostik recently launched its bold, new corporate brand, which will be showcased at INDEX. The brand features a gecko and the tagline “smart adhesives.” The gecko is renowned for its remarkable bonding abilities that allow it to cling to almost any surface, run up polished glass and support its entire body weight with a single toe. Together, the gecko and tagline reflect Bostik’s leadership position in developing intelligent and innovative adhesive solutions that are robust, efficient and adaptive.
