  • FEICA recommendation on PAAs in polyurethane adhesives intended to be used in food packaging.pdf

    Uploaded March 30, 2022

    FEICA recommendation to adhesive suppliers and users on the assessment of PAAs in polyurethane adhesives intended to be used in food packaging

    Polyurethane adhesives do not contain Primary Aromatic Amines (PAAs). However, in specific circumstances and when the adhesive is not fully cured, they can be formed by a reaction.  Consequently, the adhesive user has to be made aware of the potential formation of PAAs and their responsibility to ensure full curing of the adhesive layer.

    FEICA updated its recommendation to adhesive suppliers and users on the assessment of PAAs in polyurethane adhesives intended to be used in food packaging. The recommendation includes advice to the downstream user as regards the limits to be respected for PAAs.

  • Adhesives under the scope of the EU SUP Directive.pdf

    Uploaded November 29, 2021

    Adhesives under the scope of the EU Single-Use Plastic Directive (EU) 2019/904

    Because the Single Use Plastics (SUP) Directive is a directive (rather than a regulation), EU member states were required to transpose the directive into national law. In this process, the questions arose whether adhesives, which are typically polymers, should be considered a ‘plastic’ and whether the application of adhesives to an otherwise non-plastic product will convert that product into a plastic one.

    The EU Commission published guidelines on the SUP Directive. With the publication of these guidelines, the status of adhesives can now be answered directly from the source texts. Thus the guidelines clarify further that adhesives are excluded from the scope of the Directive and not considered to fall under the definition of plastic.

    This FEICA publication assists the industry stakeholders in communication with customers and helps them to answer questions.
