How do these components work together?

Let's take a look at a typical three-coat nonstick to see how the components work together in each layer and how the layers work together to form the complete coating:

The first coat or the primer is principally comprised of the binder, since its primary function is to promote adhesion to the substrate (and provide a foundation for the midcoat and topcoat). The midcoat tends to contain more fillers and pigment, which provide excellent hiding power (masking the substrate) and build up the thickness of the coating. The topcoat: This is rich in fluoropolymers, since its primary role is release. It is generally safe to say that the more coats of nonstick that are applied to a pan, the longer and better the performance will be.
