The History of Polytetrafluoroethylene: Discovery and Development

  • Roy J. Plunkett


Good morning ladies and gentlemen. It is a pleasure for me to be here today and participate in this review program. I am proud of my contribution; I am proud of the Du Pont Company with whom I was associated all of my active career; I am proud of the fluoropolymer industry which has developed, and I am most of all proud of the benefits to mankind that have resulted from the original discovery of polytetrafluoroethylene and the development of useful applications for it.
