DuPont offers new fluorotelomer

May 13, 2008

DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise has launched new fluorotelomer products for repellents and surfactants. DuPont Capstone products are based on short-chain chemistry and provide a step-change reduction in trace impurities below the limit of detection, offering customers the same or better performance than their predecessors without compromise in fluorine efficiency, according to the company. Capstone products also meet the goals of the U.S. EPA 2010/15 Per­fluorooctanoic (PFOA) Stewardship Program and will be registered on global inventories in all countries where they are sold. Capstone products are currently available for home furnishings, fire fighting foams, fluorosurfactants and leather end uses. More info: DuPont, (866) 828-7009; Web: www.capstone.dupont.com.
