BALIMED TICANA Rosé PVD coating specifically designed for dental abutments and instruments


Dental implants using fixed dental prostheses face increasingly strict quality requirements:

  • The functionalisation of dental abutment surfaces with biocompatible, highly wear-resistant coatings play an integral part of modern dental technology today
  • Dental instruments need to provide a highly smooth, hard, chemically stable and autoclavable coating
  • Colour-coded dental instruments allow dentists and surgeons to make identifying them easier during a dental treatment

The innovative BALIMED TICANA coating from Oerlikon Balzers not only meets these stringent requirements, it has the same colour as human gums, which makes it discreet and aesthetic, and it also offers functional properties of dental abutments. Minimal abrasion and low wear enable stable implant fixation and a longer service life.
