In 6th, April, 1938, American chemist Plunkett (Roy Plunkett) in the "accidental invention under a strange combination of circumstances of Teflon (Teflon)" this new material. The chemical name of this material is PTFE, which has the characteristics of acid and alkali resistance, resistance to a variety of organic solvents, almost insoluble in all solvents. At the same time, it is resistant to high temperature, very smooth, so widely used in non stick pan and water pipe coating.
For Planck is how to find the "TEFLON" this precious materials, I believe that most people curious like me. Suzhou Australia New Materials Co. Ltd., together with you to explore the "TEFLON" history:
Plunkett is a researcher at the New Jersey laboratory in the United States, the beginning of the time, he is helping the DuPont Co. to develop a new refrigerant. It is some error in the experiment resulted in the discovery of "Teflon". Planck will fill the gas tank of some tetrafluoroethylene gas plug in the dry ice, to prevent heat explosion. However, after Planck would like to use these gases, but found that the gas storage tank mysteriously disappeared. However, it is difficult to understand that the gas tank is as heavy as a gas. Out of curiosity, Planck saw saw a special gas tank, the tank out of some small waxy white flakes.
What are these mysterious chemicals? Planck immediately through the experiment to study their characteristics, the experiments show that this new material is a kind of special lubricant, and the melting point is very high, it is not afraid of heat, not afraid of water, not afraid of acid, non stick material "TEFLON" this accident was born. Teflon was originally used to manufacture military equipment, until 1954, some think will use this material to the frying pan. From then on, has become synonymous with "Teflon non stick coating.
