Benefits of black coated surgical instruments

Black coated surgical instruments are not only visually more attractive than the stainless-steel ones, there are several other benefits as provided below:

–        Non reflective surface reduces eye-fatigue

–        Has prolonged life

–        Up to 10 times harder than stainless steel

–        60% lower wear rate than stainless steel

–        Corrosion resistant due to oxidized aluminium coating

–        Anti-allergic due to the absence of Chromium and Nickel coating

–        Easy to clean

Making of the black coating instruments

The most obvious benefit of titanium is its superior strength. Its tensile strength is almost the same as carbon steel and it is 100% corrosion resistant.

Gold handles indicate that the scissors have Tungsten Carbide inserts. One gold handle and one black handle indicates that the scissors are SuperCut and have Tungsten Carbide inserts. Blue instruments are typically titanium.

Oxidized Aluminium (Al2O3) at the surface of the coating acts as a corrosion barrier that has been proved by electro-chemical tests.

Moreover, the coating also provides a hydrophobic effect, lowered surface tension of the surface layer makes the instruments easier to clean.

In addition, Chromium and Nickel compounds are absent from the surface layer making the coating biocompatible.

Above all, Coating can be applied on all types of surgical instruments including:

  • Scissors
  • Forceps
  • Needle Holders
  • Hooks
  • Speculums
  • Clamps
  • Spatulas etc.
