Teflon is a type of PTFE, a technical hydrophobic and oleophobic coating initially engineered to provide antiadherence to molds producing rubber and plastic elements that are usually very adherent, as well as for food prep surfaces, specially bread making. Thanks to the scientific research, PTFE has evolved providing new solutions and applications for the industry. A part rom the well known antiadherent properties, some types of Teflon provide also excellent corrosion protection for valves and mixers for chemical industry, and some varieties of PTFE can be used as a dry lubrication so to avoid using oils and greases on gears, chains and other automotive pieces.
