Intertek offers complete perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) testing services to identify the existence of these substances in activewear apparel and footwear products, as well as throughout the production process

PFCs are commonly applied to activewear like outdoor apparel and equipment like backpacks and tents to deliver water- and stain-repellency properties. However, the use of PFCs is highly regulated as they have been proven to be hazardous to human health when directly released.

Intertek’s PFCs testing services help you determine whether or not PFCs remain locked into the repellent polymer or may potentially degrade over time, causing the product to be harmful to consumers and the environment. This helps you ensure compliance with regulations while producing high-quality products that meet demand for products free of PFCs.
