What is Teflon?



In your daily shopping, it's natural to come across or hear the name “Teflon”. For those of us not familiar with the product, you might think it’s a type of fabric or adhesive. But in actuality it’s a type of coating that goes on a multitude of everyday items. Telefon is a type of Polytetrafluoroethylene(PTFE), a solid polymer that is considered to be one of the world's most slippery substances.

Many people are familiar with non-stick non stick pots and pans that have been coated with Teflon.  However, there are many other everyday items that are infused with Teflon. Automobile wiper blades also are commonly coated with PTFE, that keep the blades from squeaking as they move across the windshield. Teflon is also as a carpet or fabric protector due to it’s ability to repels liquids, allowing spills to be wiped up without leaving stains. It’s also been used on all-weather clothing, to coat eyeglass lenses, as a fingernail protector and even in a line of haircare products.

Teflon is a excellent fabric protector, that is bonded to each fiber to resist stains without affecting the fabric look, feel or breathability. It creates a strong, dry fabric that is perfect for outdoor and daily use.

With Teflon, you can enjoy YOUR outdoors and stay dry!
