The Game-changing Bonding Market in France

According to a recent study conducted by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance, and Industry titled "Bonding in France, an asset for industrial assembly," bonding has become a crucial element in boosting competitiveness for companies.

Out of the 293 industrial companies surveyed in France, a staggering 69% reported using bonding as their primary assembly method. In fact, over the past few years, there has been a significant shift towards bonding as the preferred method of assembly for manufacturers.

This trend is especially noticeable in the aeronautic industry, where production costs per part have been reduced by 40% compared to riveting, with a weight reduction of up to 2.5 times per part. Similarly, in the automobile industry, assembly time has decreased by 30% compared to screwing, and in the wood industry, technological advancements in bonding have resulted in time savings of up to 70%.

But it's not just the aforementioned industries that are benefiting from bonding. In the plastic industry, production costs have gone down by 20%, and in the electrical and electronic industries, manufacturing costs have reduced by 10-20% compared to spot welding processes, with a weight reduction of 25%.

Moreover, custom die-cutting adhesives have opened up even more possibilities for optimising the application of adhesives on worksites, production lines, and in the place of installation. The latest adhesive product developments have revolutionised bonding applications in previously unexplored areas, such as bonding exterior windows in the construction industry and bonding plastic parts made from PE or PP.

With such a diverse range of adhesives and increasing technical advancements, bonding has undoubtedly become a game-changing factor in various industries, offering tailored solutions and improving competitiveness for companies.
