Barbara J. Henry, Ph.D. Toxicologist W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc.; Fluoropolymers, as polymers of low concern, are benignly persistent PFAS, distinctly different from the others in chemical, physical and toxicological properties.  They do not break down to nor leach perfluoroalkyl acids.  They are not “PBTs”, “vPvBs” or “POPs”. All “highly fluorinated” substances are not equivalent in hazard or essential use.
