Enthone will display its family of PFOS-free wetting agents/fume suppressants (WAFS) for decorative and hard chrome applications. Each process offers surface finishers environmentally sound, high performance solutions that address the pending U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules significantly impacting the use of Perfluorinated Octane Sulfonate (PFOS) fume suppressants for plating processes.
Enthone says its PFOS-free solutions minimize air emissions, while reducing worker exposure to hexavalent chromium. Transitioning from PFOS-containing processes now ensures an uninterrupted chemistry supply and service when the new EPA regulations take effect.
