Question 2 Environmental
Why are fluorocarbons such a concern to Nikwax?

Clue
Evidence suggests that fluorocarbons wear out from abrasion to the outer surface of fabric
Fluorocarbons are "non-stick" chemicals therefore the jacket would fall apart because the seams wouldn't stick together
Evidence has come out that components/potential breakdown products from fluorocarbons are persistent in the environment and in human tissue. Nikwax uses safer formulations to achieve durable water-repellency
Evidence suggests fluorocarbons are cheaper to make and therefore don’t last as long.
