EM-Tec 3C.TI high precision tweezers, style 3C, short, very sharp fine tips, titanium

Order Material for EM-Tec high precision super alloy tweezers

The material used for manufacturing the EM-Tec high precision super alloy tweezers is a proprietary grade of a Ni-Cr-Mo super alloy.


It is used for the EM-Tec high precision super alloy tweezers:


General remarks:

  • Proprietary grade Ni-Cr-Mo super alloy
  • Six times harder than anti-magnetic stainless steel
  • Highest hardness at tweezers tips
  • Excellent strength from room temperature to 800°C
  • Excellent shape retention, resistant to fatigue
  • Fully non-magnetic
  • Excellent corrosion resistance to most chemicals, salts and acids
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Generally used in harsh chemical environments, at elevated temperature and hard materials
  • Typical applications include tweezers for microscopy, sample preparation, laboratory, medical and for aggressive chemical requirements
