  • FEICA Fact Sheet on the classification and labelling of one-component moisture curing polyurethane foams containing MCCP For members

    Following the re-classification and thus re-labelling of medium-chained chlorinated paraffins (MCCP) according to the ‘Adaption to Technical Progress (ATP)’ of CLP Regulation, FEICA's OCF Technical Working Group has published a Fact Sheet on the classification and labelling of one-component moisture curing polyurethane foams containing MCCP. 

    This internal document describes the steps taken to re-classify the labelling of hazard symbols for OCF pressurised containers containing MCCP, as the FEICA OCF TWG commissioned two independent expert institutes that confirmed that no long-term aquatic hazards and chronic effects are to be expected.

  • FEICA Constitution and By-laws

    The FEICA Constitution (Statutes) and bylaws, first published in Belgium on 26 October 2006. The latest modification was approved at the General Assembly on 12 September 2018.

    In 1972 FEICA (Fédération Européenne des Industries de Colles et Adhésifs) was formally founded at the first General Assembly in Rome. Mr. Wilfried de Kesel, Fédération des Industries Chimiques de Belgique, was elected as first president of the new Association of  the European Adhesive and Sealants Industry. The German adhesives association in Düsseldorf provided the secretariat.

    Since its inception, FEICA has continued to grow and expand its areas of interest. Although for many years a federation of national adhesive and sealants associations, in 2007 FEICA expanded the membership structure to include direct company members and associate company members. 

    In January 2007 the FEICA secretariat and office was relocated near the premises of the European Chemical Council (CEFIC) in Brussels. This has enabled FEICA to become more closely involved with the European Commission and other EU institutions and to build relationships with the chemical producer and other chemical user associations and advance the interests of the adhesive and sealant industry.

  • The circular economy: The role of adhesives and sealants

    Adhesives and sealants have been creating sustainable solutions for decades by enhancing the circularity of many products along their life cycles. The adhesive and sealant industry, committed to its sustainability vision, is therefore a key enabler in the development of the circular economy, collaborating across the value chains and with end customers to support societal change.
