  • FEICA Benefit Story - The next generation windows, a new source of energy reduction.pdf

    Uploaded May 24, 2016

    Adhesives and sealants  are used for a wide variety of commercial and residential applications. Most sealants include silicone, acrylic, urethane, butyl and other polymeric types. Formulations have been developed to meet the performance specifications established by industry standards and the particular requirements of the end user. The use of adhesives and sealants allows for greater innovation in building design, along with increased durability of structures, the preservation of the building’s environment and a reduction in material consumption for the construction of the façade and windows.

    The use of adhesives and sealants in many sectors including construction, automotive, and energy production, contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of a surprising number of everyday and advanced products and manufacturing processes  creating a "new licence to do business in the 21st century”.

    A sustainable industry is a forward-looking industry, conscious of its responsibility and with a long-term perspective. This is the Adhesives and Sealants Industry - contributing to create a better future for society!

  • FEICA Benefit Story - Moving more with less CO2.pdf

    Uploaded May 24, 2016

    The motor car has been with us for more than 120 years and today it is hard to imagine life without the motor car. It has transformed our way of life, our landscape, and our outlook. Worldwide it has provided mobility, pleasure and economic opportunity to millions of people, but its widespread use has damaged the environment. Now the big question is how sustainable is the motor car, and the way we use it?

    The use of adhesives and sealants in many sectors including construction, automotive, and energy production, contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of a surprising number of everyday and advanced products and manufacturing processes  creating a "new licence to do business in the 21st century”.

    The European Adhesive and Sealant Industry 2014 Facts & Figures

    Although adhesives and sealants play an essential role in a huge range of consumer and industrial products they are largely invisible once applied. As a result, there is little awareness of the adhesive and sealant industry and the benefits it brings.

    Our specialty chemical sector, which represents about 2% of the total European chemical industry’s turnover, contributes more than 13 billion euros to the EU economy and employs more than 41,000 people.

  • FEICA Constitution and By-laws.pdf

    Uploaded April 07, 2016

    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.
