Ecolon safe non-stick cookware coating

Benefits of Ecolon Coating

Most non-stick cookware in today's market uses PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) for its non-stick properties. While PTFE made aluminum cookware popular as it provided a non-stick solution and prevented corrosion of aluminum, recent findings show that PFOA, a chemical used as a processing agent in the manufacture of PTFE-based cookware, could be a carcinogen and be harmful to the environment.

Using the most advanced ceramic technology, Ecolon produces durable and efficient non-stick coating material that is safe and environment friedly. Ecolon's coating line is completely dedicated to ceramic coating to prevent cross contamination from PTFE-based coating.

  • Environmental Factor
    Ecolon is not harmful to the environment and the human body as it's main ingredients comes from dirt, sand and rocks. PFOA is not used during production and does not remain as a residue on the cookware. Additionally, CO2 emission is reduced in the manufacturing process compared to PTFE. Heavy metals such as Cadmium, Lead and Mercury is not found in the coating. Other harmful chemicals are not released even if the pan is heated to a high temperature.
  • Durability
    Durability of Ecolon coating against scratches and high temperature allows the coating to last longer maintaining its non-stick property after repeated use. It also allows for easier cooking and cleaning with metal-based utensils. Most PTFE coating can only withstand up to 4H pencil testing. PTFE coating releases chemicals at 240°C. On the contrary, Ecolon can withstand 8H hardness testing and will not melt up to 450°C.
  • Efficiency
    With Ecolon coated cookware, you can use less energy and achieve faster cooking times. Ecolon has better heat transfer due to the high heat conductivity of Ecolon coating material. Ecolon can reflect more Long Wave Infared Rays (90-93% compared to 80-85% for PTFE coating) allowing the heat to penetrate food up to 3 cm, cooking food evenly without just burning the outside. Also, Ecolon’s durable coating makes it efficient to clean even after repeated use.
  • Non-Stick
    Ecolon coated cookware can cook an egg without using any oil! And clean up is a breeze too, both inside and outside! Ecolon's non-stick coating performance may appear to be slightly less than a PTFE-based non-stick coating. However, Ecolon's advantage comes from its durability, maintaining the same non-stick performance even after repeated use. PTFE-based non-stick coating loses its non-stick ability more quickly than Ecolon.
  • Design
    Ecolon coating brings new design possibilities to cookware with its flexibility. Wide range of colors are available with high gloss for both inside and outside. See currently available colors.

In summary, Ecolon is a completely PTFE and PFOA-free non-stick coating based on the most advanced ceramic technology.
