Assogomma update for the PFAS issue
“As far as PFASs are concerned, in order to answer the numerous requests for clarification,
we inform all rubber industries and their customers that we are not aware of any restrictive
measure – either at national or European level – that conditions or restricts the use of
fluoroelastomers or fluoropolymers.
… authorities in other countries, such as the UK, have already provided for the
explicit exclusion of fluoroelastomers and fluoropolymers in general from any future
restriction on PFAS.
In conclusion, there are currently no restrictions on the use of fluoroelastomer and/or
fluoropolymer products, nor are there any studies claiming that they are dangerous.
