Dr Dieter Drohmann publishes article in current issue of FARBE UND LACK 5/2023
Dr Dieter Drohmann, Managing Director of the Chemservice Group, has published an article on the EU proposal on PFAS restrictions in the current issue of the magazine FARBE UND LACK 5/2023.
PFAS ARE A GROUP OF SEVERAL THOUSAND DIFFERENT HIGHLY FLUORINATED SYNTHETIC SUBSTANCES, BOTH POLYMERIC AND NON-POLYMERIC. THEY ARE DEFINED AS FLUORINATED SUBSTANCES CONTAINING AT LEAST ONE FULLY FLUORINATED METHYL OR METHYLENE CARBON ATOM (WITHOUT AN H/CL/BR/I ATOM BONDED TO IT). AS FLUOROPOLYMERS HAVE NO HAZARD POTENTIAL, THEY SHOULD BE EXCLUDED FROM THE RESTRICTION PROPOSAL, AS THIS WOULD OTHERWISE AMOUNT TO A DEPARTURE FROM RISK-BASED SUBSTANCE REGULATION.
FARBE UND LACK is a monthly trade magazine for the coatings industry published by Vincentz Network.
