British Adhesives and Sealants Association (BASA)
As the voice for the industry, BASA supports its members by representing and promoting the industry, offering guidance on technical and compliance issues, providing networking opportunities for members and providing members with support services.
BASA is an association run for its members by its members. Its greatest strength resides in the experience and expertise of the volunteers who agree to sit on its working groups and task forces.
BASA’s antecedents stretch back more than 60 years 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 independent trade body dedicated solely to the interests of the adhesives and sealants industry.
