Adhesive Sealants & Mastics
As of 24 August 2023, training is required for professional and industrial users of polyurethane adhesives, coating and sealant products within the EU and UK
Recap: New REACH regulations are being introduced for diisocyanates; the chemical building blocks for polyurethane products, including polyurethane foam, moisture-curing polyurethane adhesives and two-component polyurethane adhesives. The regulations address industrial and professional use, targeting unsafe handling, whilst allowing adhesives and sealants to remain widely available. It does not impact the DIY market.
FEICA, the Association of the European Adhesive & Sealant Industry, in coordination with several other bodies within the polyurethane industry, have been developing a comprehensive training programme to ensure the safe use of diisocyanates for producers and professional users all over Europe
The training platform can be accessed via www.safeusediisocyanates.eu
FEICA made the decision to financially support the training of professional and industrial users of polyurethane adhesives and sealants for member organisations and their clients. By using the FEICA voucher code, the web-based training for adhesive and sealant applications will therefore be free of charge. Note that the FEICA voucher is only valid for the designated training material related to PU adhesives and sealant applications and is only available for member organisations and their direct clients
