Bodo Möller Chemie and Henkel Adhesives Technologies keep expanding their cooperation ISO:9001 AS9120 documents the company's proven performance
Starting immediately, Bodo Möller Chemie will collaborate even more closely with adhesive manufacturer Henkel Adhesives Technologies. As a result of this, the internationally known Offenbach-based specialty chemicals company will keep expanding to become the leading paneuropean sales & distribution partner for Henkel’s adhesive solutions in the automotive, metal, packaging, wood, electronics, medical technology and aerospace sectors. To this end, the company’s own Adhesive Competence Center (ACC) equipped with an adhesive laboratory is being significantly expanded and now also performs Henkel-specific tests. For this purpose, Bodo Möller Chemie invested in new facilities and additional technical staff for the ACC in order to keep expanding adhesive expertise and all-inclusive consulting in a very significant way. For industrial uses, adhesives are translated into engineering datasets; to integrate adhesives in production, Bodo Möller Chemie has comprehensive process expertise. Adhesive users benefit from specialized knowledge about the shelf life, processing and integration of adhesives, and can commission the corresponding material testing. The Adhesive Competence Center (ACC) also advises on the implementation of adhesive processes and helps customers in preparing their audits according to DIN 2304 and DIN 6701-2, as the ACC is certified for both standards.
Leading adhesive distributor in Europe
The company offers a full portfolio. In addition to the products of numerous leading manufacturers, Bodo Möller Chemie has extensive know-how for many sectors, among them the e-mobility growth area and its associated modern vehicle body manufacturing as well. Numerous OEMs and tiers benefit from this extensive knowledge throughout the world. “Owing to its close partnership with Henkel, Bodo Möller Chemie is following its strategy to become the leading adhesive distributor in Europe. The next step is planning an expansion of the existing activities in the Middle East, Africa, China and North America. We want to be the No. 1 in distributing adhesives and giving expert advice to user companies, and consistently pursue this strategy. The change in production processes and the growing use of adhesives require this service and knowledge of Adhesives 4.0!,” says Frank Haug, CEO of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group. The close partnership with Henkel expands the portfolio of Bodo Möller Chemie, adding it to the adhesive solutions of DOW, DuPont and Huntsman that are already being distributed.
From Loctite® to Bergquist®
Bodo Möller Chemie offers the following product groups from the Henkel portfolio: Loctite® (high-performance adhesives, sealants and coatings), the Bonderite® products (cleaning, surface treatment, coating and lubricant materials), Technomelt® hot melt adhesives, water-based adhesive solutions of the Aquence® family, as well as the recently added Bergquist® thermally conductive materials, which are available as Gap Fillers, Gap Pads, Sil Pads, adhesive foils and paste adhesives as well as phase change materials used above all in the high-performance batteries of electric or hybrid vehicles. Here, the pad materials are permanently elastic and designed for long-term use. Liquid materials such as the Henkel Bergquist® Liquid Gap Filler can also be used in high-speed dosing applications. Both the close partnership and strong collaboration between Henkel Adhesives Technologies and Bodo Möller Chemie means in each case the best solution for users. Jointly in coordination with customers, Bodo Möller Chemie also strives here to develop innovative and customized adhesive solutions.
From Aviation to E-Mobility
For the international specialty chemicals company with head office in Offenbach, Hessen, the certification is another important step in an expanding market: More and more companies from the aerospace and other industrial sectors, which require a comprehensive ISO-certification in the supply chain, decide for the competencies of Bodo Möller Chemie. Among the long-standing industrial partners are manufacturers like BASF, Huntsman, Henkel, Dow, DuPont, Songwon, Michelman and many more. Growth industries such as e-mobility and innovation industries such as aerospace and defence technology profit directly from this and can access a grown know-how. „In hardly any other industry is the paradigm shift as intensive as in chemistry. In the past, the distributor used to supply almost exclusively, but today the distributor is a vital part of the development chain on the way to series production,” describes Frank Haug, Managing Director of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
