AkzoNobel is debuting a nonstick coating technology positioned as a replacement for polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in the cookware market. Called NP2, the coating is a silicone-hybrid polymer that is more durable than typical ceramic-based PTFE alternatives, Akzo states. The housewares manufacturer Tramontina has launched a line of pots and pans called Eco-Friendly Cookware that employs the Akzo coating.
