With sustainability at the core, Bostik offers smart adhesive solutions for professional builders and architects that are globally available and part of contributing to and achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To meet environmental requirements, compliances, and technical performances for construction projects’ needs, they used Bostik SEAL’N’FLEX (FLEX-IQ®), the latest range of high-quality sealants that Bostik uses its new breakthrough technology – FLEX-IQ® – namely in the P590 SEAL’N’FLEX ONE PLUS, P795 SEAL’N’FLEX PREMIUM and H725 SEAL’N’FLEX FAÇADE products.
A time-saving solution combined with flexibility, reliability, and durability, Bostik FLEX-IQ® sealants can offer perfect adhesion without the use of a primer and can be applied to most the common buildings both porous and non-porous substrates. Once applied and finished, the sealants are highly elastic and thus ensure a durable long-lasting functional life expectance.
In response to the evolving demands and dynamic challenges of the construction environment, Bostik FLEXIQ® sealants serve as a time saving, cost-effective and sustainable solution to build greener landscapes that can also reduce carbon footprint and waste, as well as lower VOC emissions. To cater to different construction projects’ specifications and builders’ requirements, Bostik FLEX-IQ® sealants are adaptable and flexible and they can be used even in stringent conditions.
With this, Bostik (Adhesive Solutions by Arkema) won in the Chemicals category at the SBR International Business Awards. The prestigious program lauds foreign companies for their outstanding projects in Singapore.
Sealants can achieve the highest technical and mechanical performances that are expected in the construction sector while delivering a perfect aesthetic appearance. Bostik FLEX-IQ® sealants are tested and certified by many globally recognized accreditation bodies such as CE, ASTM C920, EN15651 (Part 1 & 4) and French A Plus.
Notably, Bostik FLEX-IQ® sealants have also met the stringent requirements to be certified as ‘label free’ products (an average low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) at 2.34g/l). The sealants obtained international environmental certifications such as the GEV Emicode EC1/ EC1 Plus and Singapore Green Label that is administered by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC).
