Read the condensed Q&A below and watch our full 10-minute presentation video for in-depth advice from one of our techs:
Q: How can I check if the material I use contains a PFAS?
A: Section 3 of the SDS will list certain chemical CAS numbers, which you can look up online. However, the best way is to contact the supplier of the chemical. Q: Is it possible to remove PFAS materials from drinking water?
A: Yes. Filters containing activated carbon or reverse osmosis can effectively remove PFAS from drinking. Q: Are all chemicals that contain Fluorine a PFAS?
A: No. PFAS materials have specific, very stable, structures which make them “Forever Chemicals.” Q: Is the Fluoride in my toothpaste, OK?
A: Yes. Fluoride in toothpaste is inorganic (not carbon bonded), therefore it has very different properties than a PFAS.
