Teflon is the trade name of a polymer that is resistant to heat, chemicals, moisture, electrical arcing, and friction. The chemical name of the monomer of Teflon is tetrafluoroethylene (TFE). It is produced under different names by other companies other than Pont. Teflon, which was introduced to the market in 1944, has a molecular structure consisting of a long and straight carbon chain saturated with fluorine atoms. Due to the very strong chemical bonds between carbon and fluorine atoms, it has superior properties that cannot be found in any other polymer.
