Europump position on the restriction of PFAS

Published: 1/02/2023 | PFAS

PFAS materials are used in many of the listed and further applications, mainly as sealings, bearings, cable sheaths, coatings, pump inserts and membranes, due to their extraordinary behaviour. As the PFAS materials, which are up to 100 times more expensive compared to standard materials, are only used in those cases, where no alternative is available, Europump rejects the broad restriction of PFAS, as many vital applications will not work without PFAS materials.
