Nitrogen stainless steel
Nitrogen alloyed improves austenite stability, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Steels supersaturated with nitrogen have been investigated, which rival the latest ferritic steels in strength and have greater toughness.

Teflon is certainly easier to say than polytetrafluoroethylene, its scientific name. Like many long and complicated names, polytetrafluoroethylene was shortened to the acronym PTFE.
