0 02microns thickness with a proper teflon coat. The nonstick part of a pan is actually just a coating applied to its surface which is why nonstick cookware is less durable than traditional cookware.

Ceramic coating and teflon coating. Teflon coating can go an upwards of 5k to 7k maximum. Nonstick cookware purpose id to cook food without sticking less oil and release food with ease. Non stick ceramic coatings come in several proprietary blends such as the common thermolon.
Ceramic coatings become popular in the 1960s as an alternative to ptfe coatings. Teflon coating ceramic coating. These glazes can vary but they are inorganic.
Teflon or polytetrafluoroethylene ptfe based compound popularly used on non stick cookware. Polytetrafluoroethylene ptfe silicon carbide sic thickness of coating film. First the core material forms the base of the pan and then the ceramic coating is applied towards the end.
Ceramic coated pans are made the same way as teflon pans. No carbon is used in the processing and they generally are mineral based. Also ceramic coating has an additional advantage during the manufacturing process as it requires as little as a single layer of application unlike ptfe teflon which needs at least 3 layers of application.
However ceramic coating is highly durable lasting for a few years. Teflon nonstick coatings outperform ceramic coatings. More durable hard wearing.
Initial ceramic coatings used to made of lead and cadmium which later where found to be toxic. Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer clear coat that is applied over the topcoat of the car paint. Compared to ceramic and ppf it is drastically cheaper but we would still need to go over if it is justified or not.
Teflon coating costs like both ceramic and ppf varies upon the car size. 2 microns of ceramic coating over the top coat of the paint. That coating can scratch or wear.
United states of america. This durability also justifies its higher price point. Category of paint protection.
Teflon coating is the cheaper option among the two and lasts for 3 4 months at most. Side by side testing between teflon nonstick coatings and ceramic coatings shows that cookware made with teflon nonstick coatings offers superior food release and durability. It is made from a mixture of silica clay which is hardened together with binders oxygen reinforcing chemicals and color.
Ceramic coating mostly consists of only one layer which makes teflon cookware to be durable than ceramic cookware. The core of your nonstick pan may be made of several materials such as aluminum stainless steel or ceramic but what makes it nonstick is an added coating. Teflon coating is the cheaper option among the two and lasts for 3 4 months at most.
