The member companies of the German Adhesives Association are operating far beyond the German border - Adhesive systems "Made in Germany" are supplied to a substantial number of European and global target markets & industries. Therefore the German Adhesives Association publishes documents, briefing notes, press releases, etc. which are relevant for the industry and the customers also in English.
Based on the successful German educational materials that IVK published in co-operation with VCI, an English translation was worked out in order to roll out this valuable information all over Europe. This material is available on CD-ROM, and it can also be downloaded from here. The use of the material is free of charge.
In a joint project the German Adhesives Association and the editors of the magazine ADHESION - Adhesives & Sealants started already back in 2009, to publish the Adhesives Technology Compendium every second year. For the new 2015 edition, the team of authors has been extended to IVK´s fellow associations from Austria, The Netherlands and Switzerland. Thus, the newly published reference book now contains the company profiles of more than 160 adhesive & sealant manufacturers, dosing & mixing equipment suppliers, research institutes, as well as consultancy companies and toll manufacturers from these four European countries.
Furthermore the compendium gives a survey on the broad activities and committee work of IVK and its sister associations, as well as on European legislation & regulations, statistic and standards, important to the European Adhesives & Sealant Industry.
Hardcopies of the Adhesives Technology Compendium can be bought at a price of Euro 25,90 (incl. VAT, plus shipping) from: Industrieverband Klebstoffe e.V., P.O.-Box 26 01 25, D-40094 Düsseldorf - or by E-mail: martina.weinberg(at)klebstoffe(dot)com.
