We represent the interests of our Members, large and small, in the adhesive tape value chain and are reinventing the concept of product design for engineers throughout Europe

Afera is the European Adhesive Tape Association, a not-for-profit trade organisation representing the interests of the best-in-class businesses within the adhesive tape value chain.
