Should Your Camping & Children’s Play Tents be Treated with Flame Retardant Chemicals?
Important research & policy updates, and work from our Institute
What are your favorite seasonings for food - salt, pepper, ketchup, parm? How about a sprinkling of PFAS?
For furniture that is both healthy and fire safe, effective flammability standards are critical.
Our Institute's PFAS Data Hub brings to your fingertips a curated list of over 75 reliable databases with information on PFAS in products, contamination sites, government and private sector initiatives, biomonitoring, toxicity and more.
In the last 10 years, have you manufactured, processed or imported products containing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)? If so, be aware - the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may soon require a detailed report.
The Institute's recent study finding potentially harmful per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in more than half of makeup products tested—most of it unlabeled—received widespread media attention. Now makeup lovers across North America are asking us: How can I avoid PFAS in my cosmetics?
Support for managing per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) as a class is burgeoning, and producers of these “forever chemicals” are scrambling to mount a defense.
Organophosphate esters (OPEs) are some of the most commonly used flame retardants in consumer products today, especially electronics.
I recently attended a Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry North America meeting focused entirely on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
Synergist chemicals keep a low profile, but they are a crucial part of flame retardants’ act: Think of them as Teller to flame retardants’ Penn.
