BALIMED CNIFor medical devices to run smoothly

BALIMED CNI for medical devices
Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) instruments

In order to extend the service life of medical devices, in particular their moving parts must be protected against abrasion and corrosion. BALIMED™ CNI is a very smooth and temperature resistant coating fulfilling optimally these requirements.
