On Thursday 4 June 2020, FEICA organised a webinar on a FEICA risk assessment for cyclic esters.

Matthias Frischmann, food chemist and Head of Corporate Analytics at Henkel in Düsseldorf introduced the topic of cyclic esters, explained the risk assessment that was carried out and the responsibilities of each actor in the supply chain of PU and heat seal adhesives. 

A summary of the report and the slides of the FEICA risk assessment of cyclic esters in polyester adhesives are available on the FEICA extranet.


On 28 September 2017, FEICA held a seminar titled 'Safe Adhesives for Safe Food' for all actors in the supply chain.  The seminar concentrated on migration testing of adhesives and especially the testing of the migration of mineral oil hydrocarbons.

The proceedings are available for download by clicking on the titles.
