The Titanium Carbide ions are deposited to the working end in a special process, which allows the ions being penetrated into the material.
As a result, the degree of hardness increases from normal 48-52 HRC (Rockwell) to ~70 HRC. The wear of the surface is then reduced enormously. The risk of fractures which is possible on the conventional TC deposits, and bending which occurs especially on those very fine needle holders is eliminated almost completely.
All instruments from ROCKHARD series come with a blue handle. *
