This FEV is volatile stuff, it degraded the vulcanized rubber on those seals like it was acid. Strangely, there's no acidic content to it at all, it must have affected the O-rings on a molecular level. Kind of makes me wonder if it's safe having it pooling up on the floor.”
Carl Wurth was a West Tek technician employed at their Appalachian facility, responsible for maintaining the FEV storage tanks and infrastructure. FEV's volatile nature and aggressive degrading of rubber seals, despite its lack of acidic content, was a constant problem, causing leakage and other damage to the facility. If it wasn't for the hazard pay, Wurth wouldn't have even entertained continuing to work for the company. After the Great War, he stayed at the facility for a week as the supervisors and the others figured out what to do. A week after, he and the remaining technician left the facility, after dumping a neutralizing agent in the vats and turning the FEV into toxic, but otherwise harmless goo.
Carl Wurth is mentioned only in Fallout 76.
