New Study Gives Most Fluoropolymers Clean Bill of Health

A new study gives 14 fluoropolymers and fluoroelastomers a clean bill of health as polymers of low concern (PLC) — materials posing insignificant threat to human health or the environment. The study, conducted by the American Chemistry Council’s Performance Fluoropolymer Partnership (PFP) and published June 14, advances research that identified four fluoropolymers as PLCs in 2018. The PFP’s research focused on the diverse chemistries of these materials — concluding they should not be regulated “as one monolithic unit,” the ACC said.
