BALIMED FUTURA High aesthetics and better identification through colour coding

BALIMED FUTURA - high aesthetics and better identification through colour coding

The bronze-coloured BALIMED FUTURA not only improves the aesthetics of medical instruments, it also helps surgeons to better identify their operation instruments. Also, the high hardness of BALIMED FUTURA gives surgical instruments sharp cuttings-edges and outstanding protection against abrasive wear.

  • Colour coding
  • Sharper cutting-edges
  • High hardness
  • Minimum wear
  • High thermal stability
Coating material TiAlN
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour Bronze
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 33 +/- 3
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** ~0.6
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 700
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.
