Bodo Möller Chemie becomes partner for the Henkel Adhesives medical products Henkel and Bodo Möller Chemie intensify their collaboration
The Bodo Möller Chemie group, provider of specialty chemicals and complete solutions for the industry (www.bm-chemie.com), has deepened its partnership with Henkel even more. Since early November 2019, the Henkel Adhesives medical products are now also part of the German portfolio of Bodo Möller Chemie. The emphasis of this sales and distribution partnership for the bonding needs in medical applications lies on instant adhesives, UV curing adhesives, epoxy resin, hybrid and silicon adhesives as well as on adhesive systems for the manufacturing of medical products. Global market and technology leader Henkel stands for highly effective and reliable adhesive solutions. Henkel tests all LOCTITE products in the medical field according to the strict requirements of the ISO 10993 biocompatibility standard.
The optimal adhesive solution for every application
As Henkel partner, Bodo Möller Chemie is already present in packaging adhesives and functional surface technologies under the brand name BONDERITE. “After already looking back on a long-standing partnership with Henkel Adhesives, we are especially glad that we can now also be in charge of the sales and distribution in the demanding area of safe, medical adhesives,” emphasizes Frank Haug, CEO of Bodo Möller Chemie. “On the one hand, as a result of that, we solidify and intensify our partnership with such an innovative company like Henkel. On the other hand, we also complete our product portfolio with the new medical products.” Now, Bodo Möller Chemie offers the suitable adhesive system as well as professional advice and services for almost all conceivable applications.
Henkel as global market leader
Regarding the cooperation of the two companies, Wolfgang Bier, Regional Head Western Europe AEI Industrial Assembly Key Account Team at Henkel, says: “We see Bodo Möller Chemie as highly competent partner and are glad that the company has started acting right away as qualified contact for our medical field customers too.” Henkel, the well-known company group with a long tradition and world market leader for industrial adhesives, offers its customers outstanding innovation capability and expertise in the demanding medical field as well. “As partners, Henkel and Bodo Möller Chemie share very similar values,” adds Jürgen Ihrybauer, Sales Director DACH and DK at Bodo Möller Chemie, “from technological performance, safety and reliability all the way to the clear orientation to the needs of our customers.” Henkel’s biocompatible LOCTITE products are used worldwide – by manufacturers of adhesive tapes, bandages and dressings, in tubes, catheters and needles or in the most varied medical technology devices, from the housing component to the medical imaging system. Also unique is Henkel’s polymer technology for drug dispensing with the help of medical patches.
Medical approval according to ISO 10993
Henkel has provided intensive training to the Bodo Möller Chemie specialists with regard to the special requirements and safety standards in the medical field. Thus, Bodo Möller Chemie also offers now manufacturers of this field a real full service, from design development and adhesive selection all the way to dispensing technology. “For customers, it is precisely our expertise in the field of dispensing technology that represents a real added value,” says Ihrybauer. “Also, the certification according to the ISO 10993 series of standards for biocompatibility has a very fundamental importance in the medical field because manufacturers are not allowed to use adhesives at all without the corresponding approval.”
