At System Seals, we are deeply committed to both the performance of our products and the well-being of the environment. We acknowledge the use of fluoropolymers, a type of PFAS, in some of our sealing products. These materials are essential for the high performance and reliability that our diverse range of customers expect from us.

However, we are also acutely aware of the ongoing discussions and concerns regarding the environmental and health impacts of PFAS chemicals. As an industry leader, System Seals recognizes the importance of these issues and is actively engaged in seeking sustainable alternatives.

While fluoropolymers play a crucial role in some of our current product range, serving a variety of markets, we understand that the broad restrictions on these materials, as proposed to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), would necessitate changes or modifications to certain affected products in our offering. We are prepared to undertake these adaptations, viewing them as a step towards more environmentally friendly solutions.

To this end, System Seals is investing in research and collaborating with experts to explore viable alternatives to PFAS compounds. We are committed to this transition, understanding that it will require time, innovation, and persistence.

We also recognize that our customers may have immediate needs and concerns.  System Seals is ready to engage in open dialog and collaborate closely with our customers to find tailored solutions using proven materials that meet specific requirements without compromising the quality and performance of our products.

As we navigate this challenge, we pledge to maintain transparency with you and keep you informed of our progress. We are determined to lead by example in our industry, balancing product excellence with our responsibility to the environment and public health.

For any inquiries or collaborative opportunities regarding our use of fluoropolymers and our efforts to find sustainable alternatives, please reach out to us.

If you have questions about which products or part numbers are affected, where alternatives already exist, or if you would like to speak to an expert, please contact our PFAS Help Desk at

Thank you for your ongoing support and trust in System Seals.
