Welcome to the 2017 edition of the BASA Handbook. We aim to provide members with a wealth of practical information about the adhesives and sealants industry in the UK and Ireland. With nearly100 member companies, BASA is the business association for the adhesive and sealants industry in the UK and Ireland. You will find information about each member company, an overview of the work of the association, an authoritative and practical Where to Buy directory for adhesives, sealants, raw materials and ancillary products, a guide to the industry s Trade Names, Technical Standards, and much more. Further information about BASA, its members, how to select and where to buy adhesives and sealants, plus useful guidance documents and further valuable information, can be found on our website at Together, this handbook and website offer specifiers, users and members of the association virtually everything they need to know about the industry and its products.

It may not be clear what form the New World will take (either as a result of the US election or Brexit), but it seems that uncertainty will prevail through 2017, as we wait to see what the results of the various European elections will be. As a result, we have spent the latter part of 2016 trying to increase our contacts with other industry Associations and making sure that BASA s voice to government is as large as possible, given its limited resources. Council feel it is vital to continue to provide value for money by operating a low-cost Secretariat, but that means we need to work smartly and pool our positions with other like-minded Associations. This will continue on through 2017 and beyond. I reported last year that the Adhesives and Sealants industry needed to keep a close eye on the circular economy debate. It is apparent there are many people who do not really understand why adhesives and sealants are used, why they re necessary and the positive contribution to sustainability. They are listening to comments made by the recycling industry who complain that they need better dismantleability and this seems to translate to: ban all adhesives and sealants and the problem will go away. We are working with FEICA on this, as this is not the real story and the value of the end materials, the overall design of any structure and having the ability to put higher technology recycling methods in place is the real answer. Even if you stopped using adhesives tomorrow, for the next 20 years what you are recycling would not be mechanically fixed and in 20 years time many of the mechanical fixings would have failed or would be seized, so would not translate to easy recycling. We need to get smarter at getting these points over to the public in general and being able to put data to the stories will be essential. This brings me to the reminder that we are still looking for UK articles to contribute to the FEICA sustainability story and members should take a look at the FEICA extranet. In addition to our technical programme, we continue to run our enthusiastically supported social events with the sports day in June and the Dinner Dance in November, and I hope to see many of you at these events, promoted through our new events website; and don t forget the 2018 AGM! Enjoy this edition of the Handbook with its overview of our industry, along with news and details of technical and business events from the association, including some free ones. Finally, there is the business directory section with its trade names details that allow you to get in touch with members.

The important work of the technical community relies heavily on identifying committed representatives from the member companies. Getting involved in a Working Group is an excellent way for newer employees to gain experience and will help to keep BASA one of the leading trade associations. We would encourage all BASA member companies to consider nominating their staff in Think of it as a free training programme and a way to give newer staff members some exposure to the world of technical regulations. It can also assist them to understand the market, so it has wider benefits for us all. Without our technical working group members, BASA would have to increase its paid technical team and we all feels that this is not the best way forward for a healthy industry. BASA was established largely as a technical association, offering information and advice on the importance of regulations and standards for the adhesives and sealants industry in the UK and Ireland. This remains the cornerstone of the Association, with an extremely active technical programme. Once again during 2016, we have managed over 850 issues involving nearly 2000 documents. Of these, 30% were originally initiated by documents coming through FEICA and a further 25% directly from the European Commission. The remaining documents stemmed from BASA activities (22%), consultations with other trade associations (16%), UK government consultations and standards development. A total of 88 notices to the membership and further information posted to the website kept members informed, along with regular articles and updates in the Bulletin, and presentations at the two Open Technical Forums. BASA maintains five active working groups, all with their own programmes of work, keeping members updated about regulatory issues, and providing comment, evidence and information to governments and standards organisations. BASA s programmes are built on the knowledge and expertise that reside within its five working groups, together with adhoc and standing task groups looking at specific issues. In recent years, our volunteer technical experts, ably assisted by the Secretary, Technical Officer and outside Consultants, have been moving away from simply keeping members abreast of new regulations towards offering an industry voice for modifying proposals for new and enhanced regulations directly to government and their advisors and, via FEICA, to the European Commission much as we have been the voice for industry in standards committees in the UK, Europe and globally for many years. The increased activity continues to add to the workload of our consultants as they work with each Chairman to ensure that the information is circulated widely to the membership via the website and that we have a broader input into consultations, encouraging new member input where possible. Shortly after this Handbook is published, you will be enjoying the benefits of a brand new state-of-the art Website, which is designed to dramatically improve member communication and engagement, and our new events website is already proving popular to book our flagship events.

8 Big opportunities in the Unknown Introduction by BASA Secretary, Lorna Williams With the decision of the UK electorate in the 2016 referendum to withdraw from the EU, we find ourselves in very uncertain times, a situation that no business wants to see continue. Now that Article 50 has been triggered and the negotiations to extract ourselves as painlessly as possible are officially in play, we will start to see what the post-eu membership landscape will look like. One thing that I think we can all predict is that the increasing burden of EU chemicals regulation will continue to impact all of our businesses, whatever our export situation, and regulations like REACH and the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) will continue to be challenging. During 2016, I attended a number of meetings on behalf of BASA, relating to Brexit. I think it s safe to say the only certainty is that no one can really predict what the post-brexit world will look like, at least for the foreseeable future. I know that BASA has members who cover a wide range of business types and sizes, and so, moving forward, BASA will offering members as much information as possible, both in terms of impact of regulations and also issues like CEN and ISO standardisation, and the impact of Brexit on these processes. One investment that Council proposed and members agreed to at the 2016 AGM was the development of a new website. We started work on this in September 2016 and the project will be complete during the first half of I would therefore urge every one of you to start using the new website (and that means making sure you register!), and feed in comments and information to the appropriate working groups. BASA is stronger because of membership involvement. We stay on top of the technical issues because we have an active membership. We have access to more information than if we stand alone because of our membership of FEICA, the Alliance of Chemical Associations (ACA), the Trade Association Forum (TAF), Croner and the Construction Products Associations (CPA). These are big resource stores that are available for all our members, so please use the new BASA website to access information. The various networking events we hold through the year are also a vital member resource, so I would strongly advise you to look at the programme and attend some of the events.

9 The REACH 2018 registration deadline With the pre-registration deadline of May 2017 speedily approaching, eyes are now turning to the 2018 registration race against the clock. ECHA s forecast on the number of new registrations, 70,000, and the registrants profile, predominantly Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), for May 2018, prognosticates something of a quake in the structure of the chemicals market. In order to avoid unexpected surprises and inadvertently incur expensive mistakes, it is of crucial importance for companies, independently of their role in the supply chain, not only to determine their obligations under REACH, but also to communicate regularly with their suppliers/customers regarding their intentions for the 2018 deadline. line on our posters goes, better together and this means that, as a relatively small industry sector, the work of the adhesives and sealants industry is vital to the economy, and we need to work together to make sure our voice is heard. We have not only the Brexit challenges ahead, but also some potentially industry-damaging chemicals legislation on the horizon: di-isocyantes threaten the polyurethane industry, BPA s listing as a potential SVHC threatens the epoxy industry, cyclotetrasiloxane (D4) and cyclopentasiloxane (D5) considerations under REACH Annex XVII threatens the silicone industry and the MIT reclassification threatens the preservation and shelf life of all water-based systems. This trend to look at banning chemicals without looking at a bigger picture has severe implications for the adhesives & sealants world, and BASA and its working groups will be working hard to advise members and advocate wherever possible for chemicals and chemistry that is essential to our industry. The Technical Review follows (see page 10) where BASA s TSC Chairman and Technical Officer Jim Palmer goes into more detail on some of these all-important subjects. Who is affected by the deadline? 31 May 2018 is the REACH Registration deadline for phase-in substances that are manufactured or imported, on their own or as part of mixtures or articles, into the European Economic Area (EEA) in volumes between 1 and 100 tonnes per year. A substance cannot be placed in the market unless a registration has been submitted to ECHA. However, companies that submitted a preregistration benefit from transitional arrangements that allows them entering the market before the registration process is complete. Additionally, if a company wants to commercialise a new substance, the substance needs to be fully registered before it is placed in the market, since non phase-in substances do not benefit from transitional arrangements. Most companies required to register by May 2018 are SMEs, for which REACH registration might impose a considerable economic burden. This is especially the case of niche chemicals manufacturers, who may find that little or no data is available for their substances, therefore facing a significant cost increase because of testing requirements. The result is that some companies might register only their most profitable substances, or reduce the imported/manufactured volume below 10 tonnes per year, in order to benefit from less comprehensive registration requirements. In those cases where the supplier decides not register the substance, they might opt for either the total cease of manufacture or import, or for capping the tonnage below 1 tonne per year, with the aim of avoiding registration while remaining on the market. In any case, a reduction in raw material suppliers and a lower number of substances commercially available are expected as a consequence of the REACH 2018 deadline.

10 Technical Review: the devil is in the detail Jim Palmer, TSC Chairman and BASA s Technical Officer Without the dedicated and diverse support of our Working Group Chairs and all the active Working Group participants and their sponsoring employers, none of the achievements in 2016 would have been possible. The BASA technical programmes provide a major added value contribution to our industry and it is vital that all of our members take advantage of it to get the most out of your annual subscriptions. In the past, our technical programmes were focused on input to product standards development through BSI and then CEN and ISO, and representing our industry on the various technical committees is still a considerable part of the work. Our BASA Secretary Lorna Williams has taken on an increased involvement in the CEN and ISO work as part of her own Consultancy work to the industry, supported by myself and other BASA Chairs and Working Group participants, particularly on the Building Adhesives & Construction WG and Sealants WG. However, in recent years we have become increasingly involved with guiding and steering the development of legislation and political policy by adding our voice to others, both in the UK and in Europe. So, if we are to accurately represent the industry and ensure the best possible outcomes in minimising cost and maximising competitiveness, we need increasing and consistent input from the members. For most of the working groups, the ever-changing regulatory landscape consumes much of their resources. Further information is, as always, available on the BASA website under the Working Groups, but I will highlight some of the issues in the last 12 months. For the Health & Safety Working Group, the implementation of the full provisions of the Classification, Packaging and Labelling Regulation (European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008), known as the CLP regulation across Europe on the 1 June 2015, continues to require our input. For example, we have helped develop a product categorisation system that will be essential for the cataloguing, and hence easy retrieval when needed, of information supplied to the national poison centres around Europe. The continuing REACH process also has major effects on our industry. We are less than eighteen months away from the May 2018 deadline for the registration of the largest number of substances in the 1 to 100 tonnes category, which will inevitably create issues as substances become no longer available. In addition, the process grinds on for some key substances such as isocyanates, titanium dioxide and biocides as they are evaluated for their impacts on human health and the environment, and the control measures possible and desirable. The long debate about bis phenol A (BPA), a component of epoxy and polycarbonate chemistry, has finally resulted in the substance being added to the candidate list of substances of very high concern, due to its reprotoxic properties. This despite the European Food Standards Agency opinion that the chemical posed no health risk to consumers of any age, including unborn children, since any exposure to it is considerably under the safe daily intake level. The Environment & Sustainability Working Group has updated its name and remits to include sustainability as a key topic. Led by 10 THE HANDBOOK FOR THE BRITISH AND IRISH ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS INDUSTRY 2017

11 Continued from page 9 BASA consultant Tony Bingham, we have developed an ethos for sustainability supporting the vision: The adhesive and sealant industry is committed to enabling a growing population to live a better life and to use the planet s resources more responsibly and efficiently. We are also currently investigating the establishment of a packaging recycling scheme to support members circular economy efforts. The Packaging Adhesives Working Group continues to focus on concerns regarding food contact materials, an area where new concerns are identified on a regular basis. In particular, this is likely to include non-intentionally added substances (NIAS), migration, risk assessments, activities of the EU Commission and Parliament, and some substance-specific issues, such as mineral oils. CE marking and the development of harmonised standards has again been the focus of the Sealants Working Group (and also the Building Adhesives Working Group, see below). However, some potentially damaging regulations around titanium dioxide, oximes and isocyanates, as well as the Biocidal Products Regulation, have required the group to organise attempts to mitigate the effects of any new regulation. BASA continues to benefit from its membership of the Construction Products Association (CPA). Members are individually eligible to subscribe to a weekly update issued by them covering the economy, news from the UK Parliament, the associations activities and events, and others issues of interest. They also hold regular briefings for the activities of their technical committee and sustainability policy group. One of the key topics surrounds indoor air quality and its eventual introduction as part of CE marking. We are very close to the approval of a European class system for VOC, SVOC and LCI values, rather than the possibility of lists of values being linked to the Declaration of Performance, which would be very complicated and confusing. This European system will replace the numerous national schemes currently operating. Finally, I could not finish this report without also mentioning the referendum vote to leave the EU. What Brexit eventually means and looks like is difficult to imagine. The complexity of unpicking legislation like REACH, to name just one regulation, is almost too much to comprehend. Should we develop a UK REACH with our own equivalents of ECHA, Risk Assessment Committee, Committee for socio-economic analysis, and board of appeal? Should this UK REACH include a mutual recognition with the European Regulation or should it attempt to stand alone, in which case what level of acceptance will that have around the world, let alone Europe? I m just glad I am not a politician or civil servant. This is going to take an awfully long time to sort out! May 2018 is closer than we think Considering that the preparation of a registration dossier takes between 11 and 34 months, depending on information requirements, companies should have assessed their portfolio, determined which substances they wished to register and started the preparation of the dossier by now. The laboratory testing work alone takes typically around nine months for substances manufactured/imported below 10 tonnes per year (Annex VII), and 11 months for substances above the 10 tonnes threshold (Annex VIII). As testing needs to be completed several months before the deadline to ensure that sufficient time is left for the Risk Assessment and Chemical Safety Report, the starting date for testing should be around May 2017 for Annex VII requirements and March 2017 for Annex VIII. Additionally, due to the capacity limit of laboratories, a four-month backlog is common, meaning that initial arrangements should have been made with a testing laboratory by early Potential supply vulnerability Those companies who use a substance, either on its own or in a mixture, in the course of their industrial or professional activities, are defined as Downstream Users (DU) within REACH. DUs usually manufacture goods where chemicals are not the main element of their business, such as cleaning products or paints. Although DUs generally do not have registration obligations, the 2018 deadline might affect them as well, since they could suffer significant supply disruption as a result of substances being withdrawn from the market. DUs are advised to maintain regular communication with suppliers, in order to check the registration status of substances critical for their business, and that their uses are included in the registration. The registration status of a substance, together with the list of registrants for that particular substance, can be consulted in ECHA s website. This will provide DUs with a list of potential alternative suppliers. Additionally, if no supplier intends to register a critical substance, DUs could become importers, assuming the registration obligations themselves. Responsibilities beyond the 2018 deadline There are other important aspects of REACH beyond registration, such as Evaluation, Restriction and Authorisation. Additionally, as part of the approach to managing chemicals of concern at EU level, the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) will continue to grow, encouraging professional users of chemistry to find suitable alternatives. It is important for DUs to make sure that they have the necessary regulatory expertise and that chemical management systems are implemented at their site, so as to to monitor and deal with the continuous regulatory updates, while minimising business disruption. At REACHReady, we guide companies from all levels at the supply chain through the various regulatory processes within REACH, CLP and BPR, offering a wide range of quality services from consultancy through training courses.

THE HANDBOOK FOR THE BRITISH AND IRISH ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS INDUSTRY

12 Poison Centres An Overview Larissa Silver, National Chemical Emergency Centre Article 45 of CLP directs Member States to appoint a body that is able to receive information on mixtures considered hazardous on the basis of health or physical effects, primarily to use in case of medical emergencies. However, without additional clarification countries have implemented this legislation in a variety of ways. The level of information required by a poison centre on a product s hazards, the registration process, the products that need to be registered and the cost of compliance varies widely between Member States. When CLP was introduced in 2008, article 45 had a clause built in for a mandatory review period. After a lengthy consultation with the EAPCCT (The European Association of Poisons Centres and Clinical Toxicologists), industry, poison centres and Member States themselves, the European Commission came to following conclusions; that the implementation of article 45 of CLP was so varied that it lead to inconsistencies in the advice provided and incurred unnecessary costs on industry. This has led to the highly anticipated Annex VIII to CLP that has been introduced to harmonise a significant amount of the implementation of article 45 of CLP. In this article we will cover some of the key changes that are due to affect the chemical industry across Europe from Annex VIII This Annex primarily addresses the information that must be included in a notification and the format that it is delivered in. These information requirements aim to be middle ground between the least and most restrictive Member States. Currently, the information required in submission varies from as simple as the submission of a safety data sheet (SDS), to the exact and full composition of your hazardous and non-hazardous ingredients. To address this Annex VIII has introduced a minimum level of information that must be included in a notification. This includes information that would be present on a high quality SDS such as the colour, physical state, the ph where applicable, hazard classification and toxicological information from section 11. Information on the non-hazardous components of a mixture will be required for all notifications of consumer and professional mixtures. The vast majority of Members States required this information in some form, but the Annex introduces concentration ranges and a minimum declaration level of 1% to strike a balance between protecting company s intellectual property and securing consumer health. These non-hazardous components can be submitted under a generic product identifier if they are added to the mixture solely as a perfume, fragrance or colouring agent. These generic product identifiers are limited to 5% for perfumes and fragrances, and 25% for colouring agents. To be eligible they cannot be classified for any health hazard except for skin sensitisation cat. 1,1A or 1B or aspiration toxicity in the case of perfumes and fragrances. A full list of the constituents used under this product identifier must be provided to poison centres as a separate document but they do have to be affiliated to any particular product. The declaration of hazardous ingredients has been split into two categories; with those deemed a major concern for emergency health response such as those with a toxicity or corrosive classification, being treated separately to all other hazard classifications. Any ingredient that makes up 0.1% of the formulation and has a health or physical health classification must be declared within pre-supplied concentration ranges. How prescriptive these concentration ranges are depend on whether the component is deemed a major concern for emergency health response, falls under one of the other categories or is non-hazardous. Changes required to packaging information A Unique Formula Identifier (UFI) will be required on all product labelling to make product identification quicker and easier once it is registered with the poison centre. This is an alpha-numeric code that is unique to each product, and is generated using the companies VAT number and a new internal reference code for that product. The tool to generate the UFI is maintained by the Commission, but the generation and allocation of this tool is the responsibility of industry. These UFIs are not Member State specific, but rather per product, and it is an integral part of every notification. Harmonised submission format The Annex confirms that from 2020 there will only be one submission format available to industry and poison centre alike. Current formats vary from forms, to xml sheets and bespoke Member State 12 THE HANDBOOK FOR THE BRITISH AND IRISH ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS INDUSTRY 2017

13 software and notification portals. The Commission have decided on an XML format that has been developed and provided by ECHA. This can either be imported into your own data management system, ideal if you have many thousands of products, or you can manually enter this information into the commission s PC editor tool. This information would need to be provided to each Member State in turn, although a feasibility study will take place into the possibly of a one-stop notification portal to all Member States. Reduced submission for industrial products The consultation conducted by the Commission found that calls relating to industrial products are a small percentage of those received by poison centres. As such, a limited information requirement will be provided for submission of industrial products to a poison centre. This is defined as products that are intended to be used solely on an industrial site however, further clarification has been requested from ECHA on what products fall under this definition. This simply required the submission of an SDS supplemented with a 24 hour telephone number and where further information on the composition can be provided in the language of that Member State. This has the potential to greatly reduce the volume and cost of submissions a business may need to undertake. However, organisations will need to ensure they their systems are robust enough to deliver round the clock expert advice when required. Notification timeline These new requirements are being implemented step wise to reduce the effects on industry and will be implemented depending on the intended use of the mixture. These new amends are applicable to importers and downstream users from: 2020 for consumer mixtures (destined for use by consumers) 2021 for professional mixtures (destined for professional users but not used at industrial sites) 2024 for industrial mixtures (destined for use solely on industrial sites) Any submissions provided before these amendments come into force will remain valid until the 1st January 2025 unless there has been a significant change in formulation, product identifier or classification of the mixture. Use of poison centre numbers in Section 1.4 of safety data sheets Under REACH Annex II if an EU Member State has appointed a poison centre an Official Advisory Body (OAB), as most have, then their telephone number must be included in Section 1.4 of the SDS. This number can only provide information on health response and so can be used in addition to other emergency response numbers that can provide advice on fires, reaction, spillages and transport related queries. Inclusion of the OAB number in the SDS can only be done once the appointed receiving body has been notified of the required product details and safety information. We have seen an increase in enforcement by the competent authorities in relation to the use of these OAB numbers in section 1.4 Looking forward Each mixture that is classified for its health or physical effect will be allocated a product code that must be included in all notifications. This has yet to be defined by the Commission, but will be similar to the existing REACH or biocidal product codes. Whilst this Annex comes into force on the 1st of January 2020, Member States will begin to accept information in line with this annex prior to the enforcement date to reduce the burden on themselves and industry. Companies should be prepared to submit under these new requirements a year or so before the 2020 enforcement date. ECHA is planning to release guidance in 2019 to address some of the inconsistencies and queries that have yet to be addressed by this annex. Businesses should be looking forward and beginning the process of generating and allocating UFIs to their products labels and determining if they need to make these UFIs unique to particular markets. Additionally, organisations should be evaluating their product portfolio and the markets they move in to determine if they would benefit from notifying now, and resubmitting in It is important to note, however, that notification of mixtures and biocides to these poison centres is a legal requirement now in all Member States, with the exception of the UK, and there are fines and sanctions for non-compliance. This annex to CLP will dramatically change the requirements for submissions to Member State poison centres; potentially to accelerating submissions while reducing the cost of poison centre compliance. However, harmonisation may also increase the enforcement of the legislation, and present a higher risk of fines or product removal for non-compliant companies. As always, a comprehensive understanding of how best to meet corporate responsibility will be key to maintaining business continuity and securing commercial success. NCEC offer a Poison Centre Notification Service, where they can register your hazardous products in each of the EU Member States in which you place on the market, enabling you to you to use the appropriate OAB number on your SDSs and comply with Annex II of REACH.

Candidates are identified, interviewed and a full profile is presented for you to select those that you wish to take to further interviews. As the recovery continues to gain momentum and the industrial pipeline fills, then people feel more comfortable and less anxious about job security. They may even start to think about moving job so there is a real risk that you could lose your best talent. Now is the time to look again at your resourcing and talent strategy. You need to be planning on how to build your resource and to address the talent gap left by downsizing or recruitment cutbacks that were so necessary to weather the economic storm. Staff Development If you do not want to increase headcount just yet how about Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and, most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do Pele developing existing staff? This will help you to hold onto them, but also increase the effectiveness of your business getting more from less. So, if want to keep developing your staff to make your business more competitive, we offer a range of services, from-oneto-one coaching through to team workshops. We have successfully run two workshops for BASA members on Building Effective Working Relationships, with excellent feedback, and have further one-day workshops planned in April and July this year on Effective Customer Communication, and Leading Your Team Through Change. We also have our flagship and well established leadership and management coaching program Perfect Direction. This has proven to be a highly effective intervention for those wishing to develop their management skills; maybe because they are making a job transition to the next level. This is one-to-one coaching carried out at your place of work. Other Services We are continually looking at additional professional services we can offer for the benefit of BASA members. One such service is on R&D Tax Credits, an excellent form of funding where you can offset your R&D costs against your company tax. We have teamed up with RandDTax who are highly respected specialists in this area. We carry out a no-cost scoping meeting where we can assess what your benefit would be under this HMRC scheme. More services are planned for 2017, including an exciting and unique on-line networking portal for chemical executives.

16 The European Adhesives and Sealants Market 2016 By Monique von Dungen, Managing Partner, CHEM Research GmbH, Frankfurt, Germany, Europe The European market for adhesives and sealants accounts for about 30% of the world demand. In 2016, the size of the European market reached 4.4 million tons, representing a value of 14 bn. Since 2015, the EU and Eastern Europe have shown different patterns of growth as a result of geopolitical changes. While the adhesive and sealant demand continued to grow at a sustained rate of 2-3% annually in the EU, the demand in Eastern Europe was affected in a negative way by the economic developments in Russia and Turkey. In 2016, many EU countries experienced a strengthening of the internal demand, supported by increased consumer spending. Main drivers behind the European adhesive and sealant demand growth are the healthy state of the transportation sector, the automotive industry in particular, and building activities picking up in many countries. Germany maintains a leading position in the European adhesives and sealants market (Figure 1) with a 19% share in 2016, followed by Great Britain (11%), then France (10 %), Russia, Italy and Turkey (9%, 9% and 8% respectively). Thus, these six countries account for about two thirds of the European market for adhesives and sealants. The European market increased 2,5% in terms of demand volume in 2016 ( see Figure 2). Most countries experienced positive growth. While Great Britain and Germany enjoyed above average growth, Italy and France are still experiencing weak demand. Turkey s rapid market expansion in recent years has slowed down and the Russian market is showing signs of recovery after severe declines in Great Britain The British adhesives and sealants market continued to progress well on its solid growth path, reaching a demand volume of 470 thousand tonnes and a value of nearly 1,7 bn (manufacturers sales value) in the year The growth factors characterising the European adhesives and sealants market are found to be particularly strong in the British market, with a buoyant automotive industry in 2016, and a growing number of housebuilding and civil engineering projects. Furniture manufacture also experienced a boost. The devaluation of the pound sterling had a positive effect on exports, which sustained higher industrial production levels in the second half of This trend is expected to continue in The downside of the currency devaluation is the rising costs of imports, which is likely to impact consumer spending and domestic demand in the future. Figure 3 shows a split of the British market in market sectors, as defined by the Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual. This market classification was established by leading industry associations such as FEICA (Association of the European Adhesive and Sealant Industry in Brussels), the ASC (Adhesive and Sealant Council in the U.S.) and CATIA (China Adhesive and Tape Industry Association). For 2017, the market projections indicate that the British adhesives and sealants market will continue growing. However, the rate of growth may be lower than in Growth will be supported mainly by the construction sector and Great Britain s success in export markets.

18 Circular Economy How the Circular Economy discussions might shape our future but will this be positively or negatively? We have all been innovating over the last 15 years to produce green adhesives and sealants, and comply with the various environmental regulative initiatives, as well as cope with raw material shortages and price fluctuation. Yet of late the term circular economy is increasingly being promoted. It is no longer about carbon footprint or dangerous chemicals (still, don t be mislead, as changes in these areas continue to be challenging), but the world is ever more focused on the circular economy. Our membership of the Construction Products Association has alerted us to comments made about manufacturers hiding behind generic EPDs (not to be confused with Model EPDs) and the recycling targets being made more difficult because of adhesives and sealants (which apparently stick too well and don t allow dismantleability). These are just two of the issues that we have heard during meetings. There is a global drive to look at not just recycling, but the total picture and to try to keep the value of the resources intact as much as possible. This means an increasing desire to re-use, rather than recycle, and perhaps a competition between durability and dismantleability; we must be careful to ensure that regulatory changes are not made in ignorance of this. Comments such as: If we ban adhesives and use tapes, because these are easier to remove when we dismantle are the sort we must take seriously. We have to get involved in these discussions right at the beginning. It is about designing for end of life, and making sure that adhesives and sealants are not treated unfairly simply because of a lack of understanding. We must work with the recycling industry to ensure that we are able to continue to provide the function that you get from an adhesive, compared to a mechanical fixing (or a sealant). We must dispel the myth that mechanical fixings are easier for recyclers. Those of you who have ever dealt with seized nuts/bolts will understand that the notion, We can simply unscrew it, can sometimes be anything but the case, but instead time consuming, thus extracting all of the residual value! We do this not because of commercial reasons (although our Chemical Industries Industry represents about 2% of the total European turnover, a not insignificant figure) and contributes more than 13 billion to the EU and employs more than 41,000 people, but because of the long-term benefits that the use of liquid adhesives and sealants brings. Insulation, speed of construction, durability, light weighting, sound proofing, vibration damping, better aesthetics and the ability to bond a wide variety of substrates are functions that should not be forgotten. After a recent scare regarding Commission Intentions to regulate fixing solutions on electronics by focusing on one solution only, after a concerted effort by FEICA and others they have managed to get concessions to leave the solution open. The commitment of the Commission for recycle and reuse is, however, clear, so somehow with limited resources we must remain vigilant. BASA members are encouraged to follow these discussions on the website, but more importantly to raise any questions or share any negative comments with BASA when they hear them. Our ability to inform the membership relies on the members talking to us, as well as us briefing everyone. Unlike some larger Associations with staff, BASA tries to provide our information for the lightest possible costs, in order to be sustainable long term! 18 THE HANDBOOK FOR THE BRITISH AND IRISH ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS INDUSTRY 2017

56 Another year in the Life of a dedicated dicated member! was a momentous year for BASA members, with 2016 the Brexit Referendum result sending shock waves through the business community. Happily, it wasn t all about work and there were some great opportunities to relax and network, starting with the Industry Lunch after the 33rd AGM at the National Space Centre, Leicester, in March We then moved on to the BASA Sports Day in June (although in the midst of the thunder and lightening on the golf course, relaxation turned into more of a trial), an informative Open Technical Forum held at Croner House in October and, of course, last year s Dinner Dance held at the Castle Hotel Windsor in November. That was also a wet weekend, but the magician entertained BASA members (some more than others, but you needed to be there to witness that!) and the BASA regular musical entertainers Broadband once again kept us all dancing until late. Numbers were down, but spirits were up, and we would hope to see you all at this year s Dinner Dance at the Spectacular Chester Grosvenor Hotel on 25 November Enjoy this page of reminders of those gatherings, hopefully to encourage many of you to attend the events in 2017 and we would love to see some new faces booking for our events this year (as well as our regulars, of course!). Our dedicated events website ( will once again manage the bookings this year, in conjunction with Mint Events, and early bird deals will be available for this year s Sports Day on 13 June (with the free-to-members Open Forum being held at the same venue on the 14 June) and for the Dinner Dance on 25 November. 56 THE HANDBOOK FOR THE BRITISH AND IRISH ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS INDUSTRY 2017

57 ADVERTORIAL Growth of manufacturer recognised at national design impact awards Sealant and adhesive manufacturer Polyseam has achieved the ultimate design accolade for the rebrand of its GRAFT product range. The Yorkshire-headquartered company and its branding agency The Engine Room were both presented with a gold design impact trophy at the glittering DBA Design Effectiveness Awards in London. But the GRAFT project also went on to scoop the ultimate recognition of the evening when it was announced as the Grand Prix winner of winners at the end of the night. Since GRAFT s launch in 2014, annual sales have increased by a staggering 744% and export levels have risen by more than 1million. In fact, this transformational business exercise has played a significant part in Polyseam now building a 50,000sqm factory which is expected to create a further 50 jobs by It was this bottom line impact that impressed the line-up of high-profile judges, which included Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin; Josh Berger, president and managing director of Warner Bros; and renowned entrepreneur Deborah Meaden. Commenting on the win, Polyseam s marketing manager Olando Salina said: The evolving challenges in the manufacturing market mean we must continually innovate to drive growth. We therefore focused on the development of an environmentally friendly, all-in-one adhesive and sealant created using our own in-house expertise. This high-performance technology was already awardwinning in its own right. But it didn t achieve the traction we sought, which is why we engaged The Engine Room to help clarify our market position, overhaul the branding of this product range, and craft the communication materials we d need moving forward. The Engine Room team has specific expertise in this field, and we were therefore delighted when GRAFT was born. The project success is a testament to the collaboration of these forward-thinking business and design brains. The Engine Room s managing director Lesley Gulliver added: The building, construction and manufacturing sectors are perhaps not renowned for their design prowess. But this project goes to show that strategic creative thinking is about much more than just what looks good. The overhaul of this product range and the development of the GRAFT brand has helped to revolutionise Polyseam s entire business. Polyseam has been independently manufacturing firstclass brands for the majority of the world s leading suppliers since The company manufactures more than 150 different products, and exports to 21 countries globally.

Members of BASA s technical working groups are active within many BSI Committees, including PRI/52 (for adhesives) and B/547 (Sealants), and represent the industry on a wide range of BSI, CEN and ISO working groups, developing new, and reviewing existing, standards and associated test methods. Website BASA s brand new website, which should go live in the first half of has three key objectives: to promote and advance the interests of the UK adhesives and sealants industry; to inform members of the Association about BASA activities and key regulatory, technical and other issues; and to provide assistance to users and potential users in the selection and use of adhesives and sealants. The public area of the website promotes member companies and their products to site visitors every week. Powerful search engines identify BASA members, who provide particular adhesives, sealants or ancillary products. The members area, used by around half the member companies every month, includes more in-depth news and information about the industry and BASA activities, and provides the facility for free discussion and sharing news and information within a monitored environment. Newsletter The newsletter of the association, the BASA Bulletin, is published three times a year and posted to members in February, May and October. The Bulletin provides readers with an overview of Association activities, and highlights the main news, issues and activities within the industry.

Formed from the merger of the Sealants Manufacturers Conference and the British Adhesives Manufacturers Association in November 1983, BASA can trace its pedigree back to the 1940s when adhesive and sealant manufacturers were invited to assist the UK government with the strategic planning of materials for the industry. During the ensuing period, organisations such as the Adhesive Manufacturers Association, the British Resin Rubber Manufacturers Association, The British Adhesive Manufacturers Association and the Sealant Manufacturers Conference gradually coalesced to form what is now Europe s only national trade body dedicated solely to the interests of the adhesives and sealants industry. Today, the British Adhesives and Sealants Association involves more than just adhesives and sealants producers. We also enjoy the active support of many suppliers of raw materials and services, machinery manufacturers, distributors and allied businesses. BASA encourages all members, large or small, to play a full and active part in its work to ensure we fully represent and meet the needs of our industry.

64 Code of Practice for Trade Associations This Code of Practice for Trade Associations has been developed by the Trade Association Forum and has been fully accepted by BASA The code Principles of Conduct We will seek to achieve the highest standards and will offer our services honestly and honourably in a fair manner, and encourage our member companies and stakeholders to do the same. We shall behave in a professional manner and will respect the reputation of our sector and the other organisations with which we liaise. We will undertake to promote co-operation within the sector or sectors in which we work, and between members, customers and suppliers. In doing this, we will seek to identify and apply good practice. We will commit to improving the performance and reputation of the sector or sectors in which we work. We will endeavour to maintain and improve the quality of our work through constant review of our aims, activities and outcomes, and the cost-effectiveness of every activity. Where there is a proven and positive cost or benefit to doing so, we will aspire to seek appropriate certification or accreditation under a recognised quality assurance scheme. We will follow the rules of any public body to which we make representation and, where appropriate, seek guidance from the public body on any rules of relevance. We will pay our bills promptly, and encourage the same of our members and suppliers. Integrity We are committed to maintaining the highest degree of integrity in all our dealings with potential, current and past members, as well as other stakeholders. We recognise that our member companies may be in direct competition. We will strive to avoid showing any preference towards any member company over another and endeavour to maintain an independent position in our dealings with them. We will ensure that all relevant competition laws are respected by our members in their dealings with us and each other, where such dealings have been facilitated by us. We will never offer any financial or other inducement, including direct and indirect payments, offers of employment or substantial gifts or entertainment, to any member, prospective member or holder of public office in an attempt to influence any decisionmaking process which may affect our organisation or our industry in any way.

65 BASA Meetings: Code of Conduct All companies must at all times comply with the requirements of competition law, as set out in the Competition Act The Act requires that companies must not engage in any practice, which will, or may, prevent, restrict or distort competition or constitute an abuse of a dominant position. Application of Guidance These guidelines apply to all persons attending any BASA meeting, or representing the Association at any external meeting, or communicating by post, telephone, or by any other means on any issue or activity connected with the affairs of the Association. At the start of all BASA meetings, the Chairman will remind those present that the meeting is held under the terms of the BASA Code of Conduct and will so record in the minutes. All attendees will be asked to confirm compliance as they sign the attendance form. Conduct of Meetings All Committees, Working Parties and Task Groups must have agreed Terms of Reference and a formally appointed Chairman. All meetings must have a clear purpose, which is communicated in advance along with an agreed agenda. The Chairman must ensure that the meeting keeps to its agenda. The agenda and minutes/action notes of each meeting must be kept together with a list of participants. Copies should be posted to the appropriate Forum on the BASA website and to the BASA office. Participants should never discuss any issues that could affect competition in a market (such as collusive or exclusionary practices). A non-exhaustive list of definite no-go areas include discussions on: prices or other terms on which goods or services are currently, or are to be, provided; sharing markets or customers; limiting the supply of goods or services (to keep the price up); rigging bids or colluding when tendering; and exclusionary measures, including any against non-basa members. Attendees should take care with their language careless use of language can cast suspicion of collusion on otherwise legitimate discussions. For example, do not use guilty vocabulary, such as stitch up the market, cartel or dominant. If the Chairman of the meeting, or any other person present, becomes concerned that discussions are potentially anti-competitive, he/she should ask for the subject to be changed at once. Attendees must not speculate about whether an activity is or is not in breach of competition law and, if in doubt about an activity, must stop discussing it. The Chairman s decision will be final. This is because mere presence at an anti-competitive discussion is sufficient to be implicated in an infringement.
