    FEICA publishes Summary Report of the FEICA risk assessment of cyclic esters in polyester adhesives

    Press release: FEICA has published a Summary Report of a FEICA risk assessment carried out on cyclic esters potentially present in polyester adhesives intended to be used in food contact materials. The FEICA document aims to provide the necessary information to help downstream users carry out their own risk assessments. The summary report published by FEICA intends to outline the main findings of the risk assessment and explain that human exposure to cyclic esters from polyester pre-polymers in food packaging adhesives is not relevant from a toxicological point of view.

  • ASC-CATIA-FEICA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual.pdf

    Uploaded June 25, 2020

    Since 2012, China, Europe and North America have harmonised the Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual. Now for the first time, the three major adhesives and sealants markets – China, Europe and North America – share a common language when it comes to defining the market segments and product categories for adhesives and sealants.

    The European Adhesives and Sealants Market Report, issued by FEICA, and the North America and Asia Adhesives and Sealants Market Report, issued by the Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC), both follow the harmonised ASC-CATIA-FEICA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual, facilitating companies to compare data between Europe, NAFTA and the Asia-Pacific region.
