"We'll make it stick. You'll get the glory.” Like their innovative products, this tagline from Bostik Australia just works. We don't always see these products in-situ, but the tailored system solutions they offer architects, designers and specifiers are all about improving durability, accelerating installation times and optimising end-user comfort.

Bostik's unique and reliable product solutions

Bostik Australia proudly manufactures a wide range of construction adhesives, waterproofing solutions, flooring levellers and more at its local facilities in Thomastown VIC and Kings Park NSW. A trusted brand in Australia since 1915, Bostik has innovation at its core.

Bostik products might be hidden under floors or behind walls, but they can have a huge impact on a building's construction and performance. For the West Side Place project, Bostik’s premium timber flooring adhesive Ultraset® 3 in 1 created time and cost savings by eliminating the need to install a separate moisture barrier, acoustic underlay and additional layers of adhesive, thanks to a proprietary feature consisting of recycled, ground-up car tyres mixed throughout the adhesive.

Specifying Bostik products also provides designers with peace-of-mind as they can guarantee a compliant and comfortable result for their clients. For end-users, if they don't know it's there then it's a job done right, from design through to construction and handover.

Bostik Australia and NBS Source

National Specification Manager at Bostik Australia, Dean Carter, saw NBS as the right platform to present Bostik's range of adhesive technologies to architects, designers and specifiers. The opportunity to better support specifiers with product comparisons, selection and specification was identified as being unique to the NBS Source platform.

“Products are categorised and linked to specific to project requirements and backed by some great analytics, which help drive future communication and product development.”

Dean Carter, National Specification Manager

Bostik Australia look forward to increasing brand engagement while achieving growth and diversity in the number of specifications won. Developing new and existing relationships with key decision makers via project opportunities will also be made possible with the data available to manufacturers who partner with NBS Source.
