BALIMED™ DLC is characterised by important functional properties: the black, matt coating helps surgeons to work reflection-free under the bright surgical lighting. In addition, BALIMED™ DLC does not react chemically with other substances. The coating is extremely wear-resistant and maintains the cutting sharpness of surgical instruments.

    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.
