Are PTFE tape on the human body injury?
Some time ago there has been non-stick carcinogenic to say, because the non-stick coating is polytetrafluoroethylene, then we have a need to discuss the PTFE Tape to the human body. To discuss the health hazards of PTFE, the first analysis of the composition of PTFE: glass fiber cloth, PTFE, high-temperature silicone.
Glass fiber cloth in contact with skin itchy skin, but do not possess any poison, so the first component to exclude. The most controversial is polytetrafluoroethylene, also known as PTFE, it does not have any toxins harm, but one of the raw materials used in the production process of ammonium perfluorooctanoate are considered a possible carcinogenic effect, so start there controversy. Especially PTFE cooking utensils after reaching a temperature of about 260 ℃ began to deteriorate, and over 350 ℃ begins to decompose, these decomposition products may give rise to flu-like symptoms, usually in the case of cooking does not reach this temperature but empty cooking appliances unattended placed on a hot stove, recurring beyond this temperature, so causing damage.
In summary, the use of PTFE tape within the allowable range for use on the human body without any harm, you can rest assured that use.
