Edgetech Seals Deal With Bostik

Warm edge technology manufacturer Edgetech, a Quanex company, announces it has signed a distribution deal with Bostik, the leading provider of insulating glass sealants.

This significant move and expansion of product offering further consolidates Edgetech’s position as the UK’s IGU solutions partner of choice. 

Andy Jones, Edgetech’s Managing Director comments: “We recognised a while ago that the IGU sector would continue to undergo change and wanted to be able to offer our customers entire high performance manufacturing solutions including a range of spacers and sealants. This partnership with one of the world’s most trusted adhesive and sealant companies Bostik allows us to do just this. The business model for Edgetech in 2013 is changing and for the first time, we have a strategic multi-channel distribution chain with multiple products – all designed to make our customers’ lives easier with a one stop shop approach. To be launched officially at the FIT show in April, our IGU spacer and sealant range will exceed the key requirements of IG production including low moisture vapour transmission rates, excellent movement accommodation, low temperature flexibility and low gas permeability. Bostik’s Chris Alderson adds: “Our relentless pursuit of excellence lies at the heart of everything we do and ensures that the products we produce are of the highest specification. Bostik has built its reputation on a commitment to innovation and service, two key attributes we share with Edgetech. We’re excited by this latest move as both leading brand names continue to drive our customers’ businesses and the industry as a whole forward in 2013.”
