On November 24th, Bostik and Plastic Omnium teams won "The Award for Technique" during the 2nd edition of the European forum "Cares - Future in the making", an event highlighting the innovative techniques and strategies used in sustainable automotive manufacturing.

On this occasion, Benoit Perrier, Global Automotive Director for Bostik and Clement Venet, Industrial Process Performance Manager at Plastic Omnium, presented a technical solution in front of an audience of automotive manufacturers and equipment suppliers aimed at optimizing the paint application process for tailgates: manually applied masking tape was replaced with the automated application of masking glue.

This solution, which enhances productivity and reduces waste, is made possible through the use of the THERMELT range, a bio-sourced thermoplastic adhesive.
