What's New at Wesbond?

September 24, 2021

Wesbond Corporation announced today that it will implement an 10% surcharge on shipments of its products, effective Octiber 15, 2021, in addition to other communicated price increases. The surcharge is expected to be permanently incorporated into existing pricing by January 1, 2022.

This pricing action is driven by continued short supply and significant cost escalation of certain chemical feedstocks and plastic and metal packaging that have resulted in unprecedented costs to serve customers. These increases have been followed by inflationary costs and short supply for logistics, freight, packaging, labor and many other items required to meet customer needs.

The speed and unrelenting continuation of inflationary pressures has resulted in the need for a surcharge, which will be implemented immediately.

Name Change June 1, 2016

Our supplier of colloidal silica, AkzoNobel Pulp and Performance Chemicals, Inc., is the world’s largest producer of this material, marketing under several brand names in Europe and the US. They have recently been purchased by an investment group and have changed their name to Nouryon Pulp and Performance Chemicals. This name will appear on product labeling and SDS sheets. New name, same great company.

In 2016, under the Akzo name, they consolided their product lines under a single brand name As of June 1, 2016, the Bindzil products were rebranded as Levasil. We will be ordering your products under the new name, and they will arrive at your site with the new name.

Let me stress that the products are exactly the same; only the name has changed.

Please refer to the table below for the new name of your material.

Bindzil Name Levasil Name

Megasol S50 Megasol S50

Please alert your purchasing, quality, and production departments so that they can begin using the new names. 
Anniversary A message from Wes Jones, Founder and Past-President of Wesbond Corporation:

"Wesbond is celebrating 44 years of service to the fiber bonding industry this year.

"As a small business, we recognize and respect our customers' needs to minimize cost while finding creative technical solutions. Our 'turnkey' approach to fiber bonding systems has streamlined the manufacturing process, reduced cost and labor, and improved product performance. But, most importantly, it has enabled our smaller customers to be an effective presence in a high-technology market without capital investment in on-site research and development.

"We believe that the basic principles that keep all businesses productive and profitable are the hallmarks of WesBond's lasting success - quality, courtesy and common sense, with a strong commitment to serving and improving our industry as best as we possibly can.

"On behalf of the WesBond 'family', thank you for being a customer. We really do appreciate your business."
