Brewer Science activity pursues removal of PFOS from all commercialized anti-reflective coating materials.
Brewer Science, the leading supplier of anti-reflective coatings, has eliminated PFOS (perflurooctyl sulfonates) in its newer ARC® Brand of anti-reflective coatings. Additionally, the removal of PFOS in all of its commercially offered products is aggressively being pursued. The company complies with the environmental certification of quality, ISO14001, and views providing products free of PFOS as a proactive step toward providing both a safe workplace and sound environmental stewardship.
Currently, all of Brewer Science's latest generation anti-reflective coating products (ARC33, ARC29A, ARC28, ARC27, ARC25, IMBARC, DUV74, DUV64, DUV54, DUV52, DUV44, DUV42P, DUV32, DUV30J, DUV30, Wet i, i-CON, XHRi-C) do not contain PFOS. Further, the company has been working cooperatively with a number of its major customers to remove PFOS from older generations of products. "Our commitment to produce materials that are at the leading edge of safety and health issues is a strong driver behind our product development roadmap", according to Keith Strassner, Business Manager for the ARC® Division of Brewer Science, "Brewer Science is committed to protecting the environment and the safety of our employees and our customers' employees. We believe the proactive steps that we have taken demonstrate this long-term commitment."
