Because of the hardness, TC inserts are being inserted into the working tips of all of our cutting pliers. By using this special material during tempering, a high HRC can be obtained which allows to achieve a perfect grind and an extra ordinary lifetime of the instrument. Com pared to other types of stainless steel instruments, pliers with TC inserts are more sensitive to chemicals and require therefore special care.
All joint and hinge instruments should always be kept well lubricated and sterilized in open position. Please only use lubricants that are especially made for surgical instruments. Well lubricated instruments will work smoothly for years.
