Foreseen Restrictions on PFAS

20/07/2022 - PFAS-Statement of "AK Dichtungen"



As a result of the ongoing discussions and further increasing questions on the subject of PFAS (per and polyfluorinated alkyl substances), KWO® Dichtungstechnik GmbH, a PTFE processing and distributing member of "AK Dichtungen” (Work Circle of Gasket Technology Experts), would like to inform you about the current state of affairs regarding restrictions or bans on PFAS. This is because a comprehensive ban on PFAS would have a significant impact on the entire industry and its ability to innovate.

We would like to ask you, as an interested party and affected industrial user of indispensable PTFE gasketing materials and other fluoropolymers, for your support in making use of the opportunity to disagree to the planned restriction of these high quality polymers.

Below you will find a link to the letter from "AK Dichtungen", which informs about the current situation and outlines possibilities to disagree to the restriction.

Thank you for your support!
