BETHESDA, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council Inc. celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. 

On Tuesday, April 22, as part of The World Adhesive Conference and Expo, ASC will host an anniversary celebration. As part of its anniversary celebration, ASC created a commemorative album and an online yearbook to chronicle the history of the Council, the adhesive and sealant industry, and the individuals who make up both. The online yearbook is available to the public and the commemorative album will be presented to members of the international adhesive and sealant community at WAC.

“Virtually anywhere you look, you’ll find something containing an adhesive or sealant,” said ASC President Lawrence Sloan. “They can be found in the package of your favorite food, in your home, in the car you drive, in the clothes you wear and, of course, in the ubiquitous Band-Aid you apply to scrapes and cuts. In many ways, adhesives and sealants are responsible for bringing modern technology to market, and have played an integral role in the design of laptop computers, cell phones, iPods and anything else containing a semiconductor chip.”
