Bostik Inc., the adhesive company, has launched Relyance, a new olefin-based adhesive platform.Bostik, known for its ability to accurately track and respond to trends in the petrochemical and manufacturing industries, developed the platform in response to escalating raw material costs and shortages associated with traditional technologies.
