The Adhesive and Sealant Council Inc. recently announced that it has collaborated with Europe-based FEICA and China-based CATIA to release the 2012 ASC-CATIA-FEICA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual.

The manual reportedly provides a common set of market definitions and product categories that can be used to represent the adhesive and sealant industry worldwide. It is the first time that China, Europe and North America have harmonized the classification manual. In 2008, the ASC and FEICA harmonized their respective manuals.

“For the first time, the three major adhesives and sealants markets–China, Europe and North America–share a common language when it comes to defining the marketplace for adhesives and sealants,” said Matthew E. Croson, president of the ASC. “The project began in September 2011 in a meeting with Bernard Ghyoot of FEICA and Michael Yang of CATIA when we were together in Guangzhou, China, and culminated in the effort being announced at the World Adhesives Conference recently held in Paris, France. The adhesives and sealants market travels on a global passport, and now all of the major markets speak the same language when it comes to defining the industry.”
