PFAS and fluorine-free alternatives solutions

The use of PFAS Polymer Process Additive (PPA) has been a common practice in the plastics industry for decades.

However, due to the potential health and environmental risks associated with PFAS. In February 2023, the European Chemicals Agency published a proposal from five member countries to ban per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) containing at least one fully fluorinated carbon atom—an estimated 10,000 molecules in all, including popular fluoropolymers. Member states would vote on a ban in 2025. The European proposal, if it stands unchanged, would spell the eventual end for common fluoropolymers like PTFE and PVDF.

In addition, As early as In DEC 2022, 3M declared that it had enough. Pointing to increasingly stringent regulations as well as customer demand for alternatives, the maker of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), and other fluorinated polymers said it would walk away from the entire business-which generates annual sales of about $1.3 billion—by 2025…

How to eliminate 3M PFAS polymerization aids(PPA)? Get Fluorine-free alternatives as solutions!

Fluoropolymer makers have an alternative strategy that will allow them to preserve their businesses over the long run. The first alternative to PPA is the use of non-fluorinated polymers. some fluoropolymer makers already developed a nonfluorinated polymerization aid for their PTFE and PFA products. also known as PFAS-Free Polymer Process Aid (PPA), These Polymer Process Additives are designed to provide similar performance characteristics as PPA without the use of fluorinated compounds. Additionally, there are Fluorine-free additives are often more cost-effective than PPA, making them an attractive option for companies looking to reduce their costs.

SILIKE has an alternative strategy to 3M PFAS polymerization aids(PPA) and Arkema’s fluoropolymer – Except for silicone additives, and PPA additives, we have launched PFAS-Free Polymer Processing Aid (PPA). This Fluorine-free, silicone-containing additive performs as well as fluoro-based PPAs in wire& cable, pipe, as well as blom film extrusion for multiple end-use applications.
