Surprisingly long lifetime of high adhesion property of plasma-treated Polytetrafluoroethylene

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), or Telfon® as it is better known, is used in a variety of daily products, from cookware to carpets, because of its non-sticky property. However, this very same non-stickiness has limited its application to other fields including medicine. Scientists have reported how heat-assisted plasma treatment can modify PTFE to solve this problem.
