BALIMED ALTINAAnti-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.

    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.
    **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.
