Benefits of PTFE
1) Can be Sterilized with Autoclave - (PTFE shaft only)
2) Totally Flexible - It will bend with your body tissues unlike all metal Jewelry.
3) Hypo-allergenic - Being one of the least allergic materials, P.T.F.E. is used in the medical industry to make Heart Valves and other surgical implants. Should there be a problem of allergic reaction or rejection to conventional metal jewelry, it is likely that PTFE Body Jewelry is now a practical choice for that person under any circumstances.
