Elimination of fluorcarbons from our products
Norrøna wants to eliminate the use of fluorocarbons in our products.
Our goal is to remove all fluorocarbons from our products while still providing our customers with the protection required from the weather. We have removed all long chain perfluorinated compounds from our products. We are now testing alternatives to replace the current shorter chain durable water repellant (DWR) finishes that are still in our products
We tried using a PFAS free DWR for two of our products, the fjørå flex1 pants and shorts, but we experienced piling issues and we had to change back to a C6 formula. We therefore expect the percentage to fall again for 2016.
- Annual report that lists our waterproof/water resistant fabrics with the percentage using non- PFC finishes and percentage still containing PFC finishes.
