PTFE is polytetrafluoroethylene, or Teflon. The molecular structure of Teflon is based on a chain of carbon atoms, the same as all polymers. Unlike some other fluoropolymers, in Teflon this chain is completely surrounded by fluorine atoms. The bond between carbon and fluorine is very strong, and the fluorine atoms shield the vulnerable carbon chain. This unusual structure gives Teflon its unique properties. In addition to its extreme slipperiness, it is inert to almost every known chemical.
Acid rain, bugs, bird and bug droppings, tree sap and other pollutantscan completely ruin the paint finish on your new vehicle.TSTisyourpaintsbestdefenseagaint damage caused by these pollutants.
Gaseous and particulate emissions from industrial, vehicle and natural sources send sulfur, sulfur dioxide and nitric oxide into the air. Winds carry them (as far as 2,000 miles) to combine with water and form sulfuric and nitric acids. These acids then combine with rain to form ACID RAIN.
Acid Rain kills fish, wildlife, change soil alkalinity and destroys vegetation. It's so powerful, it has caused irreparable damage to entire buildings.
Because once it penetrates a painted surface, it greatly accelerates the oxidation and deterioration process, creating ugly blemishes, spotting and pit marks, ultimately fixable only by a repaint. Acid rain can penetrate even those surfaces protected by waxes and poly sealants in a matter of hours.
No. Soaps and detergents will not wash fallout from the paint. Even polishes and compounds cannot effectively clean or grind fallout from a vehicle's paint surface once it has been penetrated.
