“Located in Düsseldorf, IVK safeguards the technical, political and economic interests of more than 150 German adhesives, tapes and raw materials manufacturers, as well as important system partners and scientific institutes. My favourite aspect of Afera Membership is the connection to the European tape manufacturer and raw material supplier ‘scene’ and family. It is also really important to safeguard the technical, political and economic interests of German adhesive tape manufacturers at the European level. It is an opportunity to connect the world of adhesives (FEICA) with the world of adhesive tapes (Afera), and a chance to create synergies.” Read more
