NEW U.S. EPA SNUR PROPOSED
For over a decade, fluorochemical manufacturers have been working with the U.S. EPA to minimize the potential impact of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and other long-chain perfluoroalkyl chemicals (LCPFACs) on the environment. Now the U.S. EPA has proposed a Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) regarding LCPFACs.
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?It’s time to stop using long-chain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances and start using short-chain replacements, like Capstone® fluorosurfactants & repellents!
WE CAN HELP YOU REFORMULATE!Capstone® fluorosurfactants & fluororepellents were some of the first short-chain alternatives commercialized so Chemours (previously DuPont) has lots of experience helping their customers reformulate. Let ChemPoint help you use their experience to your advantage.
If you were previously using a Zonyl® product, please see our Zonyl® to Capstone®fluorosurfactant & repellent transition guide and contact us to request samples.
If you are using another manufacturer’s long-chain fluorosurfactant or fluororepellent, please call us for Capstone® grade recommendations.
