PFAS Learning Center
Fluoropolymers enable modern life on Earth and are found in nearly every facet of our daily lives. Their unique combination of properties and performance characteristics, such as excellent dielectric strength, chemical inertness, thermal stability, low coefficient of friction, and resistance to corrosion and wear, render them virtually irreplaceable in the electronics, transportation, energy, and medical device sectors.
Global discussions around the regulation of fluoropolymers and other perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are increasing, along with concerns about the impacts of these materials on the environment. Zeus recognizes that not all PFAS are the same, and views fluoropolymers like PTFE, as low-harm, high-value PFAS.
