The old stuff was Scotchgard a 3M product which contained PFOS which was banned in 1999 the Scotchgard available now is non aerosol and reformulated. PFOS had a half life in the human body of 5 years and is responsible for hard to remove contamination of water supplies as it was also used in firefighting foams.
