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.
4) Fully Adjustable- A razorblade is all that is needed to adjust the bar to the exact size of your piercing!
5) Self Threading - PTFE bars will fit all threaded accessories that you may already own! Simply screw-on your accessory (balls, spikes, etc...) on to a PTFE bar. It will create a thread on the bar and will hold strongly.
