I'm not quite sure why we didn't respond to you in the past, but I will this time.
As a supplier of nonstick coatings, we are very well aware of the problem of pet birds and overheated nonstick coatings.
While it is true that the fumes from decomposing PTFE (e.g. "Teflon") can be fatal to birds, the fumes from overheated foods can have the same effect. In fact, the toxic fumes from over heated foods are emitted far below the temperatures required to decompose PTFE. In many cases, PTFE takes the blame when it was actually the food being burned which was the culprit.
To answer your specific question, yes, QuanTanium does contain PTFE. Virtually every quality nonstick on the market contains PTFE as the nonstick component. If you are looking for good cookware which has a nonstick coating, you will not find any that do not contain PTFE.
Your choices will be to use uncoated cookware or to use coated cookware carefully. As you point out in your email, "PTFE is potentially lethal to" pet birds. Properly used, nonstick coatings provide a safe, healthful way of cooking.
I hope this answers you questions and possibly allays some concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
