Why Use a Ceramic Coating?
Coating surgical instruments with a black ceramic offers several distinct advantages. First, the coating adds a thin layer to the metal instrument that actually makes the instrument harder, offering surgeons greater precision and perfection. This anti-glare surface minimizes any reflection off the surface of the instrument. In addition, the ceramic coating is incredibly smooth, which improves the instruments resistance to corrosion. The smooth surface also minimizes friction. The reduced wear and tear means coated instruments last considerably longer. It is nearly impossible to penetrate the ceramic coating, because the raw material is bonded to the instrument both physically and chemically. The black coated instruments are much more resilient to the pressure of daily use and chemical processing.
