NEW !! - Green Tek
SCANPAN DEBUTS WORLDS FIRST NONSTICK PFOA-FREE PROCESS
February 16th, 2008 - SCANPAN has introduced a PFOA-free process for its patented ceramic-titanium nonstick surface. SCANPAN cookware with its new “Green Tek” surface was first presented at Ambiente. SCANPAN cookware has always been PFOA-free. The recent concerns linked to PFOA and its environmental impact had prompted Scanpan to work closely with their suppliers to develop a PTFE compound that would not require a PFOA emulsifier, as is the case with the traditional manufacturing process.
The new nonstick compound they have been using now for a few months is made according to a modified production technology that eliminates the need for PFOA entirely. PFOA supported the polymerization of PTFE and was extracted after the production process. By the time the nonstick compound was applied to the pan surface, PFOA was no longer present. But Scanpan wanted to tell their customers without any kind of reservation that SCANPAN cookware is completely PFOA free right from the beginning. The new nonstick compound continues to work flawlessly in conjunction with SCANPAN’s patented ceramic-titanium technology, and Scanpan customers will see no difference in product performance.”
The new surface will be marketed with the by-line Green Tek and is available on SCANPAN Classic, SCANPAN Professional and the latest addition to SCANPAN’s patented ceramic-titanium nonstick family, SCANPAN CTX.
