Solvay to discontinue Hyflon perfluoropolymer and Algoflon PTFE product lines manufactured with fluorosurfactants at company's Spinetta Marengo plant in Italy; sales of both product families to cease by June 30, 2023

Sample article from our Chemicals Industry

June 20, 2022 (press release) –

Sales will stop by June 30, 2023 to focus on other products more closely aligned with Solvay’s long-term strategy.

Solvay, a global market leader in fluorochemistry, has announced it will discontinue its Hyflon® perfluoropolymer and Algoflon® PTFE product lines manufactured with fluorosurfactants at Solvay’s Spinetta Marengo (Alessandria) plant in Italy. Sales for both product families will stop by June 30, 2023.

Algoflon® products already manufactured without the use of fluorosurfactants in Spinetta Marengo will not be impacted by this decision.

The decision aligns with Solvay’s One Planet sustainability roadmap, setting the direction for the fluoropolymers industry to support a more sustainable economy. This is also an important step to achieve the company’s goal of phasing out the use of fluorosurfactants. Solvay announced its voluntary commitment to manufacture nearly 100% of its fluoropolymers without fluorosurfactants at its Spinetta Marengo site by 2026.

In addition, Solvay is also applying state-of-the-art technology to eliminate nearly all of its fluorosurfactant emissions at Spinetta.
