Philippa J.Hill; MarkTaylor; Parikshit Goswami; Richard S.Blackburn (2017). “Substitution of PFAS chemistry in outdoor apparel and the impact on repellency performance.” Chemosphere 181, 500-507. Online at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2017.04.122.

Highlights

  • First study to compare PFAS and non-fluorinated repellent finishes for apparel.
  • PFAS chemistry for water repellency is over-engineering in outdoor apparel.
  • Significant benefits by switching to non-fluorinated finishes.
  • PFOA and PFOS can be minimized and eliminated from human and environmental exposure.
