  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8 and perfluorooctanoate, is a synthetic, stable perfluorinated carboxylic acid and fluorosurfactant.
  • PFOA, or perfluorooctanoic acid, is a surfactant and an essential polymerization aid used in very small quantities to help make
    fluoropolymers, which are high performance plastic and synthetic rubber materials.
  • One industrial application is as a surfactant in the emulsion polymerization of fluoropolymers.
  • It has been used in the manufacture of such prominent consumer goods as Teflon and GoreTex.
    PFOA has been manufactured since the 1940s in industrial quantities. It is also formed by the degradation of precursors such as some
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) has two main synthesis routes, electrochemical fluorination (ECF) and telomerization.
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a member of a family of perfluorinated chemicals that have a variety of applications.
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a member of the perfluoroalkyl acid (PFAA) family of compounds, is a strong surfactant that is used
    primarily as a processing aide in the manufacture of certain fluoropolymers.
  • It is also a possible degradation product of materials used for a variety of commercial and industrial applications, including use as
    fire-fighting foams, paint additives, surfactants, water, and stain repellants for use on clothing, upholstery, carpets, and as a coating on paper products for food containers.
  • PFOA is chiefly used by chemical companies and manufacturers to make fluoropolymers, which are utilized in the manufacture of
    non-stick cookware and breathable, stain resistant, all-weather clothing.
  • Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical discovered in the mid-20th century by a well established chemical company.
  • The term PFOA is used to describe not only the carboxylic acid C8HF15O2, but also a family of perfluorinated chemicals including
    Perfluorooctanoic salts.
  • PFOA is also sometimes referred to as "C8” which the amount of carbon chains found the molecule.
  • Salts of pentadecafluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) are polymerization aids used in the manufacture of fluoropolymers one of the applications of fluoropolymers is the coating of metal cookware products.
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical that does not occur naturally in the environment.
  • Companies use PFOA to make fluoropolymers, which are substances with valuable properties for applications such as fire resistance and oil, stain, and grease repellence.
  • PFOA is highly persistent in the environment and has been found at very low levels in both the environment and in the blood of the
    general U.S. population.
  • Perfluorinated acids (PFAs), including Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), are widely distributed
    environmental pollutants.
  • PFOS and PFOA are best known for their use in the production of Teflon and other stain-resistant materials.
  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as international and state public health regulators have recently focused considerable attention on PFOA and PFOS, which are used for a wide variety of industrial, commercial, and consumer applications, because they are persistent, and bio-accumulative depending on the length of the carbon chain.
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)  and related compounds have been used in a wide range of everyday consumer products for more than 40 years.
  • In Previous Years, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiated a “priority review” to determine whether expedited regulatory action against PFOA and related compounds is warranted.
  • It is a man-made chemical primarily used in fire fighting foams and to create water resistant and stain treatments for paper and cloth.
  • When used in the form of a fire fighting foam, it is frequently known as "aqueous film forming foam" (AFFF).
  • When used in the form of a water resistant treatment, "PFOA" is an acronym used to indicate not only Perfluorooctanoic acid itself, but also its principal salts.
  • The Washington Works Plant in West Virginia, owned and operated by the E.I. du Pont de Nemours Company (DuPont), has used ammonium perfluorooctanoate (APFO) in the manufacturing of fluoropolymers since past years.
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)  is also formed as an unintended byproduct in the production of fluorotelomers and is present in finished goods treated with fluorotelomers, including those intended for food contact.
  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) contaminated waste was incorporated into soil improver and spread on agricultural land in Germany, leading to PFOA drinking water contamination of up to 0.519 parts per billion.
