Jowat draws a positive balance after its participation at the Ligna and – after many years of absence – at the Interzum trade fairs. This year’s presence at the Interzum comes after a long absence of several years. More national and even more international visitors showed interest in Jowat adhesive products and had important application matters to discuss. Compared to last year, a delightful plus of about 15 % in visitors could be observed, confirming the general trend for trade fairs. International guests also made up an over-average part of the professional audience at the Jowat booth at Interzum.
The main booth of Jowat at the Ligna 2015 was in hall 26. Conversations here focused mainly on PUR hot melts for edgebanding. These adhesives with increased initial strength facilitate customers to improve their efficiency further.
Jowat developed a special technology to produce reactive PUR adhesives in granulate form. This delivery form can be processed in standard melting units, enabling easy introduction or conversion to reactive adhesives.
The second Jowat booth at the Ligna focused on solid wood. Tightened legal restrictions raised the matter of formaldehyde-free products once again. Discussions centred on reactive 1-component PUR prepolymers for glulam and intelligent dispersions with additional functions.
Topics at the Interzum 2015 concentrated on one thing: Thermoplastic adhesives replacing water-based systems. From material selection through processing safety and efficiency to packaging – all sectors of mattress manufacturing profit from this clear trend.
The Jowat campaign “think differently – better bonding” continues and will include the topics of upcoming trade fairs (e.g. Fachpack). The campaign can be followed on our microsite throughout the entire year.
