GenX, a patented, more sustainable technology was developed by DuPont and now enables Chemours to manufacture high-performance fluoropolymers without the use of PFOA.
GenX technology includes:
• environmental exposure control technologies that reduce the
potential for environmental release and exposure
• extremely low or no extractable water-soluble residuals in
finished polymers and end-use articles
• a processing aid with a more favorable toxicological profile and
very rapid bioelimination
In 2009, customers started to convert to the use of fluoropolymers made with GenX technology, enabling the value chain to continue meeting exacting end-use requirements.
