If Teflon is not sticky, how is it glued to the pan?

Teflon is a legally protected name owned by the company DuPont. Solid food is not sticking to Teflon, and liquids on it remain in the form of scattered drops.

Yet, somehow it is necessary to stick it to the pan that “wears it”.

During the production, the surface particles of Teflon and metal alloy of the pan are chemically modified. This way, strong chemical bonds between these various particles is created.

When these two layers are inextricably linked, with reversed procedure Teflon returns to it’s basic shape and remains glued with its other side to the inside of a pan.
