PFAS Resource Center

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals associated with surfactants used in fire-fighting foams as well as surface treatments for fabric, upholstery, food containers, and metals. PFAS are considered an “emerging contaminant” in ASTM E1527-21. Some states consider these to be hazardous substances and the Federal government is evaluating whether or not to designate some PFAS as hazardous substances. As with other types of property risk like asbestos and vapor, the science identifying the risk develops first and then the regulations follow. To address this uncertainty, LightBox has assembled the following resources to help you understand PFAS risks and factors to consider in your environmental due diligence practice.
