“Quality has a label – IVD”

With this motto the IVD INDUSTRIEVERBAND DICHTSTOFFE E.V., the leading Central European Adhesives and Sealant Manufacturers Association, formulated its claim and mission: setting standards for a high quality level of sealants and the execution of applications; thus creating a standard to which all market participants - industry, planners, performers and investors - can refer.

The most important component for this are the IVD Instruction Sheets created by the IVD working groups, which represent the current state of the art around construction joint seals.

All IVD-Instruction Sheets can be found here online and as a free PDF download.
