What is the titanium non-stick coating on Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers? You can't see it.

So I just bought a Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker. I open the manual and it states it has a "hard, highly resistant titanium non-stick coating". I look in the pot and it looks like it's all stainless to me. However, when I feel the bottom, it feels more slippery than my other pots.

Further on, it states:

"We recommend the use of plastic or wooden turners in spite of the
hard and very resistant titanium base coating."

I don't like using non-stick pots because: 1) I don't know what's in the proprietary blend of their coating and 2) If it can scratch and come off, it greatly shortens the prospective life of the cookware.

Does anyone know what this coating is? Everyone else that is selling titanium non-stick coatings have surfaces that are black or gray in color. I would like to know what this is on Kuhn Rikon's line of cookware.
