PFAS-Free Polymer Process Aid

PFAS-Free Polymer Process AidImprove production efficiency and support sustainability goals

Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been used in polymer process aids (PPA’s) for years in dozens of product categories. Many states have regulated PFAS in food packaging and many more are planning regulations in the near future.

Ampacet offers a sustainable solution. Our PFAS-Free PPA is proven to perform as well as fluoro-based PPA’s for multiple end use applications—at the same LDR as most common Ampacet PPA’s. Ampacet PFAS-Free PPA is FDA food contact compliant, economics are comparable to PFAS.

Benefits of PFAS-Free PPA

  • Eliminates melt fracture
  • Reduces die build up
  • Productivity gains (increased throughput)
  • Reduced plastic waste supports sustainability goals
  • No interference with surface treatment (printing and laminating)
  • No effect on sealing
  • FDA food contact compliant


User Guidelines for PFAS-Free PPA

  • Ampacet’s line of PFAS-Free PPA is a synergistic blend of chemistries designed to be roughly equivalent to the performance of a commonly used fluoro-based PPA.
  • Depending on your process, 1-3% of Ampacet PFAS-Free PPA masterbatch is generally required.
