Teflon is the brand name that was originally trademarked for polytetrafluroethylene (PTFE). PTFE was discovered, by accident, by a scientist in the 1930s. Upon the discovery of its unique properties, including its low corrosion and abrasion, high temperature resistance, water resistance, and non-stick abilities, PTFE was quickly trademarked as Teflon by DuPont. Its uses have grown exponentially over the years, and Teflon and its sister brands are now used widely in almost every industry.
Teflon coating spray is a product that sprays on, much like spray-paint, and then it’s baked until it forms a solid coat. This allows the user to put a waterproof, non-corrosive protective coating on any product they wish.
