actnano’s efforts to bring a more sustainable approach to product design have resulted in the industry’s only fluorine-free, 3D surface protection technology, nanoGUARD.
actnano‘s focus to provide effective coating solutions that are both human-safe and environmentally friendly has enabled us to create surface protection technologies without the hidden dangers, such as toxic PFAS (or toxic forever chemicals), currently found in many traditional conformal coatings.
“We created actnano with a mission to improve overall safety and save lives,”
“The health and safety of our customers when applying the coating is equally as important to us as improving the safety of vehicles around the world.”Taymur Ahmad – actnano CEO
Fluorine is an integral part of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). These are highly-toxic man-made chemicals numbering in the thousands. Many companies use fluorine/PFAS for its water resistance properties, however these “forever chemicals” do not degrade in the environment. PFAS can contaminate the air, water, and soil exposing people and wildlife harmful health effects. PFAS is linked to a variety of conditions like thyroid disease, liver and kidney damage, and low fertility, and continues to expand.
In many countries, public health officials have taken steps to reduce exposure to PFAS in drinking water. Current science shows that lower levels of PFAS exposure pose less of a risk, so those efforts help protect public health.
A global effort against PFAS
Consumer companies like Apple have committed to removing all PFAS from their products
actnano is committed to providing effective PFAS-free solutions through our intentional fluorine-free design and production. We are part of a growing global effort to remove PFAS from supply chains.
