All GDC instruments are produced with high-quality stainless steel, thoroughly checked and inspected during all phases of production, in order to ensure that they correspond to the international standards laid by the UNI EN ISO 9001:2008, UNI EN ISO 13485:2003, CE standards of “their compliance to use”.
The handles of GDC instruments and manufactured with AISI 304- class 3, AUSTENITIC stainless steel (no hardening treatments). This kind of stainless steel grants a very high resistance to wear and corrosion. Because the use of handles with different diameters helps to prevent an excessive fatigue of the operator’s hand, our instruments are supplied with different types of handles.
The instruments for diagnostic and restorative purpose are supplied with a stainless steel, full, round handle, with a diameter of 6 mm & 8 mm Surgical instruments: the periosteals are supplied with a stainless steel, hollow, round handle, with a diameter of 8 mm & 10 mm.
The other surgical and periodontal instruments are supplied with a new lightweight, hollow, stainless steel handle with a larger diameter of 10 mm. It grants the maximum comfort for the operator with a great reduction of hand and finger fatigue. In particular it has shown to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome acquisition.
Non-cutting tips: AISI 420 – class 4, MARTENSITIC stainless steel (subjected to hardening treatments). This kind of stainless steel grants a good resilience, a very good mechanic resistance to traction and torsion and an excellent resistance to wear and corrosion.
Cutting(sharpened) tips: AISI 440- class 4, MARTENSITIC high grade carbon stainless steel (subjected to hardening treatments). This kind of stainless steel grants a good resilience a very good mechanic resistance to traction and torsion, an excellent resistance to wear and corrosion and a very high hardness degree.
Furthermore, the tips manufactured with high- grade carbon stainless steel alloy give the instruments a proper rigidity and a long lasting cutting capacity.
Thanks to the most modern production techniques, the working tips are inserted into the handles by mechanical pressure. Therefore, no chemical adhesives or soldering are used, reducing to the minimum, the risk that the tip could come out off place.
