BALIMED ZIRCONA Color of choice for digital impressions – accurate scans and reproduction of dental prosthetics


BALIMED™ ZIRCONA offers superior wear resistance and provides highly accurate digital impressions due to its pale golden color, which is especially beneficial in fabricating dental prosthetics. It is an excellent choice over conventional TiN gold coatings.

  • For accurate and reliable scan results
  • Exceptional wear resistance for longevity
  • Color coded drills for easy visual identification
  • Proven biocompatibility
Coating material ZrN (Zirconium Nitride)
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour pale gold
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 20 - 25
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0.5

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.
