Three of the leading trade associations representing the adhesives and sealants industry have collaborated to harmonize the industry’s classification manual. The 2012 ASC-CATIA-FEICA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual provides a common set of market definitions and product categories that can be used to represent the adhesive and sealant industry worldwide. This is the first time that China, Europe and North America have harmonized the classification manual. In 2008, 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,” notes Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC. "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.” The Classification Manual will ease the compilation and comparison of market report data and improve the overall understanding and accuracy of this complex and fragmented industry.
