Henkel showcased its innovative edge banding adhesive and mattress adhesive at Interzum Guangzhou 2021. While abiding by strict pandemic prevention regulations, this year’s Interzum attracted more than 1,600 companies and 100,000 trade visitors. Several digital interactive tools were deployed at Henkel’s booth that demonstrated the companies´ efficient portfolio of adhesive solutions for the furniture and building components industries. Interzum also provided an opportunity for Henkel to hold in-depth conversations with clients and partners to discuss new trends in adhesive applications to facilitate greater sustainability in the furniture and building components industries.
Henkel unveiled two innovative edge banding adhesive solutions Technomelt KS 922 and Technomelt PUR 270/8, and also a new solution for mattress manufacture that can replace water-based adhesives, Technomelt AS 3105. To better demonstrate the leading technology and product performance, several digital interactive tools were set up at the booth to help visitors describe their challenges with adhesive application to encourage in-depth dialogue with Henkel experts.
Based on client feedback and experience direct from production environments, Henkel’s Interzum Expert Clinic helped booth visitors target multiple challenges in adhesive application and discover tailor-made adhesive solutions to address their specific requirements. As well as experiencing the Expert Clinic on an interactive screen, it was also possible to consult with technical experts from Henkel, to learn how Henkel’s adhesives could be used to solve issues arising in adhesive application.
Henkel’s adhesive solutions are widely used in furniture and in building components to help create safer and pleasant home environments. To offer a deep dive analysis of technologies applied in furniture and building components, the Henkel booth presented the Henkel Virtual Home digital interaction experience.
