Technical centre

Afera works to address important technical, economic, and environmental issues common to all its members.


Afera dedicates itself to establishing standard test methods by which manufactured adhesive tape products can be measured and to obtain their recognition by the Global Tape Forum, of which the Association is a founding member. Afera also strives to protect the common interest of its members in relevant bodies of the EU, the GTF, and other supranational organisations.
