Non-Reflective Instruments for Microscopy
Our black instruments are coated with titanium nitride (TiN), an extremely hard ceramic material.The TiN coating hardens and protects the cutting edge. Ceramic coated anti-reflective instruments are perfect for microscopy and microsurgical applications.
Coating surgical instruments with a black ceramic offers several distinct advantages.
- Corrosion resistant
- Low friction
- Wear and tear resistant
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 your instruments. The incredibly smooth coating improving the instruments' resistance to corrosion and minimizing friction. The reduced wear and tear means coated instruments last considerably longer. The ceramic coating is virtually impenetrable, 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. Coated instruments last considerably longer.
