Designed specifically for medical applications

BALIMED coating

Coatings for medical instruments have become an indispensable part of modern medical technology. The antimicrobial, highly wear-resistant BALIMED coatings from Oerlikon Balzers meet biocompatibility regulations and represent the very best quality, high cost efficiencies and a better quality of life for patients.

The innovative BALIMED PVD coatings from Oerlikon Balzers are especially developed for medical applications. Medical instruments with BALIMED coatings contribute to making a patient‘s life better, here are possible applications for BALIMED and the benefits of this PVD-coating: 

  • Dental instruments: the gears of high-speed dental drills operate with no oil.
  • Micropituitary rongeurs: bone punches with wear resistant cutting edges and black DLC antiglare coating.
  • Bone repositioning instruments: wear protection combined with anti-glare properties.
  • Bone drills and reamers: wear-resistant ceramic coatings provide long-term cutting edge sharpness.
  • Dental screws: improved screw adjustability. Reduction of torque during the assembly of the screws combined with a higher holding force.
  • Minimally invasive keyhole operations: the Knotless Fixation System – recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation award – uses BALIMED ALTINA to indicate the depth of insertion.
  • Surgical instruments: scratch and wear resistance, anti-glare and antimicrobial properties.
  • Bone saws: BALIMED provide oil-free lubrication and high-speed operation at low remaining temperatures.
