    FEICA report 'Adhesives and sealants’ key sustainability role in the transition pathway for the construction ecosystem'

    Recent legislative initiatives, such as the EU Green Deal, cover the construction sector with specific provisions, addressing all levels, from entire buildings to construction elements, and to the materials used for their production and installation. The environmental performance of adhesives and sealants used in the construction sector is therefore of high interest.

    FEICA commissioned an extensive analysis on the sustainability performance of adhesives and sealants. The analysis provides an overview of key aspects of sustainability related to adhesives and sealants in the construction sector, with consideration being given to such matters as energy efficiency and material efficiency.

    The full report 'Adhesives and sealants’ key sustainability role in the transition pathway for the construction ecosystem' is now available for members. A summary of the report is also available on the FEICA public website via this link.

    Updated FEICA guidance for evaluating the food contact status of adhesives containing mineral oil hydrocarbons

    FEICA recently updated its guidance for evaluating the food contact status of adhesives containing mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOHs).

    This guidance, provided by the FEICA Paper & Packaging Working Group, aims at supporting adhesive producers and adhesive users in ensuring that the adhesive is safe in the intended application. It provides clarifications regarding assessing the risk of mineral oil hydrocarbon migration from adhesives and, where testing is needed, performing the testing and evaluating the results. A decision tree is also included to help users evaluate adhesives for their intended application.
