Dexmet is on the grid

January 7, 2013

Dexmet recently introduced its PFOA-free PolyGrid Expanded Fluoropolymers. PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), widely used as a polymerization surfactant in making fluoropolymers including PTFE, PFA and FEP, has fallen under scrutiny by the EPA and FDA for its potential toxicity and widespread presence in the environment and human population.

Filter designers now have a solution to remove this harmful additive from their current or new filter designs that utilize PTFE, PFA and FEP with PFOA-Free expanded polymer material from Dexmet. PFOA-Free expanded PolyGrid is excellent for filter media backing and support membrane for filtration, separation, food processing and food packaging industry.
