What are PFCs?
Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are a family of fluorine containing chemicals with unique properties to make materials waterproof and repellent to liquids of all densities such as water, oil, etc.
PFCs have always been used in a wide range of sectors: outdoor sportswear and equipment, packaging in the food industry and building sector.
About the regulation:
The concentration of PFCs in products is governed by the current EU regulation n. 757/2010 which recently lowered the permitted limit of coat fabrics and other materials to 1 μg / m2.
The European trend is to reach zero level of PFC by the end of 2020 although a difinite deadline has not yet been set by the regulation.
Perletti eco-policy 2019
In the wake of this trend, Perletti has already adopted the PFC FREE policy on all its lines starting from the 2019 collection.
The PFC FREE label not only means using an eco-friendly, waterproof fabric free of toxic substances, but also demonstrates Perletti's attention to health and the environment and its aim for a green future.
