As a critical component in the creation of water and stain repellents for textiles (i.e., fabric, carpet, and upholstery), PFAS represent and annual revenue of $1billion. The secondary market for PFAS is in emulsifiers for lubricants, spray-on coating, paints, and polishes. Sales in this area account for an additional $100 million per year.

Plaintiffs prevailed in 3M’s Motion for Summary Judgment in the Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) multidistrict litigation (In Re Aqueous Film-Forming Foams Prod. Liab. Litig., D.S.C., No. 2:18-mn-02873). Defendant argued that it was immune from liability for alleged damages because the company had developed the foam for the U.S. Navy, which limits its liability under a government contractor defense. Judge Richard M. Gergel rejected 3M’s bid for immunity, stating there were issues of fact as to the government’s knowledge of the risks associated with AFFF. The judge pointed to records revealing that the government was unaware of PFAS’ presence in AFFF until the year 2000. Furthermore, 3M failed to disclose the more than 1,000 internal studies on PFAS toxicity and its presence in AFFF. (Bloomberg Law)
