Fluoropolymers Division

The Fluoropolymers Division (FPD) represents Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) member companies that manufacture fluoropolymer resins or process, convert, compound or formulate fluoropolymers. The FPD received notices of upcoming related events as well as a bi-monthly PFAS Media, Legislative, and Regulatory Monitoring report.


Providing information on general guidelines for safely handling fluoropolymer resins in processing, the Guide To The Safe Handling of Fluoropolymer Resins, 5th Ed. was reviewed and launched by the Fluoropolymers Division. Download the Guide Now!
