Information on First Aid Measures in case of an Accident with Superglue now available in English

Experts from the German Adhesives Association have prepared and published an Information leaflet on First Aid Measures in case of an Accident with Superglue. Cyanoacrylate Adhesives commonly sold as superglue, instant glue, power glue, magic glue or NASA glue, etc. are very fast curing products with high bonding characteristics. Within seconds, they can bond human tissue, including skin or eyes. Experience has shown that with proper procedures in case of accidents, surgical interventions are not necessary as long as some essential instructions and procedures are complied with. These essential instruction procedures are described in the information leaflet which is now available in English.

European Court of Justice:
German Trade Barriers violate EU Construction Law

The European Court of Justice decided that additional legal requirements in Germany on CE-marked construction products violate the principles of free trade. Instead of keeping to the procedures set by the Construction Products Directive German authorities (DIBt – Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik) have enforced their own additional approval system requiring a separate “Ü-mark”. Companies from abroad, lawyers and trade associations complained against the complicated and bureaucratic system in Germany discriminating producers from other EU countries.

Although decided for tube gaskets, insulating materials and doors, the decision of the European Court is of basic significance. For products which are subject to harmonised European standards there is no competence for specific national requirements at all.

Online “Adhesive Bonding Guide” – now available on Internet

Adhesive Bonding is a special process with a broad variety of diversified applications, and a huge number of quality influencing factors. Even more many users of adhesives are often not aware of the technological requirements of the adhesive bonding technology.

For this reason experts from IVK and Fraunhofer IFAM have developed the Online-Tool “Adhesive Bonding – the right way!”. It is designed for general applications of adhesives and quality assurance of bonded joints, and it covers all technological aspects from product planning to repair and recycling.

This Online-Tool aims at to enable the user of adhesives identifying quality influence factors and choosing suitable methods of quality assurance.

The Online-Guide provides the basic knowledge of the adhesive bonding technology in order to avoid failures with respect to adhesive selection and –application. This Online-Tool is a perfect complement for workforce qualification at intercompany level, for consulting of customers, and for product training carried out by adhesive producers.

This Online-Guide addresses all users of adhesives, it is not limited to a specific industrial sector, and the use of this Online-Guide is free of charge.

Environmental Product Declarations now also available in English

The new EU-Construction Products Regulation (CPR-EU 305/2011) demands the declaration of reliable information on sustainability of construction product if regulated by a harmonized EN-Standard or a European Technical Assessment (ETA). In this context IVK joined forces with the paint and construction chemicals industry, and experts from these 3 branches developed Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). EPDs are available for construction products based on dispersions, epoxy-resins, polyurethanes/silanes, and mineral mortars. In total there are 16 “Model-EPDs” broken down into more than 155 “Specific-EPDs” specifically describing applications of the various construction products in buildings. The structure and the content of the EPDs strictly follow the specifications of ISO 14025; furthermore the EPDs are certified by the German Society of Sustainable Construction (DGNB – Deutsche Gesellschaft für nachhaltiges Bauen). Manufacturers of construction- & flooring installation products are now put into the position to comply with the new EU-CPR. In order to support its members regarding their European & global businesses the “Model EPDs” will successively be translated into English. 8 EPDs are already translated and available.

Typical Product Carbon Footprint-Values for Industrial Adhesives

The recent discussion on sustainability has triggered an increasing interest in Carbon Footprint values of both, products and processes. In spite of the fact that the amount of adhesives in a bonded product is relatively small; still, adhesives manufacturers are being asked for Product Carbon Footprint (PCF)-values of the adhesives they supply. In order to support IVK-members in respective discussions with their customers, an IVK expert-group has calculated typical PCF-values (cradle to grave) for the following product groups: adhesives based on water-based dispersions, thermoplastic hot melt adhesives, solvent based adhesives, and reactive adhesives.
