BALIMED ALTINA Anti-glare coating that obtains sharp cutting-edges on surgical instruments

Micropituitary rongeurs
Bone repositioning instruments

BALIMED ALTINA provides sharper cutting-edges on surgical instruments. Therefore, the coating contributes to the faster recovery of patients because it allows wounds to heal faster. The anti-glare properties of BALIMED ALTINA facilitate the surgeon's work.

  • Extremely hard coating
  • Excellent on stainless steel
  • Improved cutting performance
  • Anti-glare
  • Suitable for a wide range of medical instruments
Coating material AlTiN
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour Black & Purple
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 30 +/- 3
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** ~ 0.6
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 900
Process temperature [°C] < 350
General remark All given data are approximate values, they depend on application, environment and test condition.
*Coating hardness HIT [GPa] Measured by nano indentation according to ISO 14577. For multilayers the hardness of the different layers varies. Hardness can be adapted to the application.
**Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel Determined by ball-on-disc test in dry condition with an Steel ball according to ASTM G99. During run-in the given values may be exceeded.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
