Neoflam’s Ecolon: safe non-stick cookware
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 friendly. Ecolon's coating line is completely
dedicated to ceramic coating to prevent cross contamination from
• Environmental Factor Ecolon is not harmful to the
environment and the human body as its 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
• 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 Infrared
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
In summary, Ecolon is a completely PTFE and PFOA-free non-stick
coating based on the most advanced ceramic technology.
