BALIMED CLong operational performance - even with dry-running applications

Dental screws
Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) instruments

Drive components such as gears and bearings in medical devices like dental tools are exposed to high mechanical stress daily. The low friction coefficient and good sliding properties of BALIMED™ C makes it ideal for low lubrication and even dry running applications – at low temperatures. BALIMED™ C is a WC/C-based coating, and thus a mixture of metal and diamond-like carbon. The result is the ideal way to reduce surface fatigue and tribo-oxidation.
