    Polyurethane one-component foam (OCF) and spray foam can (SFC) technologies

    FEICA has developed a position paper to explain the differences between two entirely different technologies on the market that may look alike because of the identical packaging. These technologies are the Polyurethane one-component foams (OCF) and spray foam cans (SFC), both containing > 0.1% by weight methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI).

    To better understand the two technologies, please download this FEICA position paper. The paper has been co-signed by ISOPA.

    Defining a system for the notification of polymers (FRENCH, in cooperation with AFICAM)

    This is the French translation of the original English leaflet which can be consulted here.

    The European Commission is working to extend registration requirements for polymers, currently exempted from registration under EU REACH. The Commission is considering requesting industry to notify of certain polymers’ information.

    This FEICA leaflet explains why the notification of polymers should be limited to a concise dataset and analytical or test data should not be required at the notification stage.

    FEICA comments on the degradation of polyesters

    Polymers of relevant toxicological or ecotoxicological properties will be subject to registration as foreseen under a new REACH amendment. Polymers without such hazards will be exempt from registration obligation (Polymers of Low Concern [PLC] concept). One such exemption is the so-called ’Polyester Exemption‘, under which certain polyesters manufactured from predefined monomers will not require registration. This FEICA paper intends to address the Polyester Exemption and will also provide some background on the degradation of polyesters.

    The fifth CARACAL Subgroup polymers meeting was held on 20 October 2021. FEICA submitted some initial comments after the CASG meeting. In this FEICA paper, we share additional figures from members on the impact of certain measures before the 6th CASG meeting.

    The FEICA Statutes and By-laws

    The FEICA Constitution (Statutes) and by-laws were first published in Belgium on 26 October 2006. The latest modification was approved at the Extraordinary General Assembly in May 2021.

    In 1972, FEICA (Fédération Européenne des Industries de Colles et Adhésifs) was formally founded at the first General Assembly in Rome. Since then, 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 (DCMs) and associate company members (ACMs). 

    In April 2020, the FEICA secretariat and office was relocated near the premises of the European Chemical Council (CEFIC) in Brussels. This enables FEICA to be even more closely involved with the European Commission and other EU institutions, to build relationships with the chemical producer- and other chemical user associations, and advance the interests of the adhesive and sealant industry in general. FEICA will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary next year, in 2022.
