Adhesives and Sealants at the 2014 FIFA World Cup™

We’ll be using our What’s New section in the June issue to highlight adhesives, sealants and coatings products that will be used for the tournament.

March 12, 2014

Confession time: three months from today, I’m going to have a really difficult time concentrating at work. The 2014 FIFA World Cup™ is scheduled to run June 12-July 13 in Brazil, and I absolutely cannot wait!

My daughter started playing football (aka “soccer” here in the U.S.) when she was four, and I initially started learning about the game in order to help her learn. She stopped playing after middle school, but my interest hasn’t waned a bit.

Football is now one of my passions, and watching dozens of matches on an international scale is a true treat. What teams do you think have the best chances of winning? I suppose Brazil is probably at the top of most lists, but Germany and Spain could also be strong contenders. I wouldn’t rule out the Netherlands, either. Whoever wins, it’s sure to be a thrilling contest.

In honor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, we’ll be using our What’s New section in the June issue of ASI to highlight adhesives, sealants and coatings products that will be used for the tournament. Whether the product is used in the balls, boots, pitches, kits, or stadiums (or anywhere else, for that matter)—we want to hear about it!

Please send your 2014 FIFA World Cup adhesives, sealants or coatings product news (with photos, if possible) to me at If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or give me a call at (330) 336-4098.

Thanks in advance, and long live the beautiful game!
