    Extremely hard and resistant to breakage for maximum precision machining


    In the medical systems sector, carbide solutions are the leading alternative: when doctors treat teeth and bones or when specialists work with implants and dentures, highly precise and extremely resistant tools are needed. On the basis of carbide grades developed for you, Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT supplies you with both standard and customer-specific solutions: being extremely hard, tough, resistant to breakage and heat, carbide blanks prove maximum performance and are many times superior to conventional steel products.

Certified safe

We closely comply with the strictest healthcare regulations for medical systems. Corrosion-resistant grades offer security, reliability and durability. If you are counting on certified quality, CERATIZIT offers you numerous grades which match the special premium requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).


Premium carbide for biocompatible tools

Our new carbide grades are also checked for in-vitro cytotoxicity according to DIN EN ISO 10993-5 by an accredited test laboratory. The demand for biocompatibility in the field of medical products raises standards of patient safety. For dental tools which are directly in contact with the tissue for a short time, cell tolerance has to be guaranteed.
