If you need an industrial type Teflon spray coating e,g, for commercial applications, then use this link Industrial Teflon.

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or Teflon as most of us know it as was created accidentally when a scientist trying to make a totally unrelated chemical observed that PTFE reacted with the iron of the container it was being stored in.

Teflon is a brand name for PTFE and owned by the DuPont Corporation.

When it comes to your cookware Teflon is a non-stick coating.

Teflon is also non-reactive meaning it is less likely to corrode over time.

Industry also has a number of uses for Teflon including sealing against leakage or as a lubricant for machinery.

Teflon will reduce friction, wear and the consumption of energy to name just a few of its atributes.

Information regarding the process of spray coating your house hold pots and pans follows below.

Application of Teflon in most cases requires a multiple step process including polishing, priming and heat fusion. There are Teflon spray coatings on the market that claim ease of use, along with excellent adhesion. Most information I have seen on the subject proves differently.

Teflon, to me anyways, is one of those coatings that needs high heat to stick properly. Your oven might get the job done but the fumes would probably take a few years off your life and result in an end product would more than likely fall short of the smallest of expectations.

There are companys that will resurface your cooking pots and pans for you. Keep in mind though that if your pans are not high end the cost of resurfacing can be more expensive than replacing the pan in the first place.

Flaking or pealing Teflon is considered a health hazard so if your pans are a little worse for wear you might want to get a new set. Newer pans for the most part are created with better technology resulting in a far superior product than early Teflon pans.

With that said, using non abrasive cleaning products and kitchen tools on your Teflon surfaces is still advisable. Another thing to keep in mind is that Teflon tends to break down at high temperatures so before purchasing remember that not all company's are created equal. Check your options and use the product only in ways recommended by the manufacturer.
