PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is a fluoropolymer made of molecules that contain carbon and fluorine. PTFE coating systems are characterized by excellent scratch resistance, abrasion resistance as well as the best non-stick properties.
PTFE non-stick coating system is completely food safe and has been used safely and successfully over the past 40 years. The health authorities of Europe, the United States (approved by FDA), Canada, and other countries have accepted the use of PTFE non-stick coating also on cooking utensils that come into contact with food. PTFE is an inert substance that doesn’t chemically react with food, water or detergents.
