What is a nonstick coating made of?

There are five basic elements that make up a coating before it is applied to a product: The binder (or resin) adheres to the surface of the pan. It acts as the "glue", providing adhesion and cohesion. It also determines the fundamental properties of the coating. The pigment provides the color. The "nonstick" component (PTFE or silicone) provides the release. The reinforcing agents strengthen the coating and resist wear. The carrier (water or solvent), in which the other materials are suspended, and which evaporates when the coating is cured.
