This chapter provides an overview of the numerous uses of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) within the building products sector, including roofing, coatings, flooring, sealants, and more. Wherever possible, information about potential non-PFAS alternatives is included. The chapter also describes factors incentivizing this industry to move to PFAS-free alternatives and reasons why the building products sector is well-positioned to do so.
