Relyance offer supply security and price stability.

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.

In addition to matching the performance of today’s best adhesives, Relyance also offers greater supply security and long-term price stability. SBC polymers can only be derived from the processing of the crude oil feed stream and have experienced swings in both price and availability as the world oil market fluctuates. Olefins are derived from both crude oil and natural gas.Global trends indicate growth in the processing of natural gas resulting in increased investment and therefore more reliable availability of raw material and improved cost development.
