Surgical scissor
Surgical forceps
Surgical tweezers

BALIMED™ ANTHRACITE SATIN provides sharper cutting-edges on surgical instruments and excellent wear resistance over a long time, even after several autoclave cycles. Thus, the coating contributes to a quicker recovery of patients because it allows wounds to heal faster. The anti-glare properties of BALIMED™ ANTHRACITE SATIN make the surgeon's work easier.

  • Hard coating
  • Enhanced anti-glare
  • Improved cutting performance
  • High wear resistance
  • Suitable for a wide range of medical instruments
  • All properties are maintained even after several autoclaving cycles
