|New technology metallurgy delivers inserted tip materials with extremely high chromium content.|
NPI proudly announces a new alternative to carbide and tool steel inserts. It’s part of our continuing effort to bring our valued customers the ultimate in performance, wear, and corrosion resistance. NPI’s PREMIER M2 Plier Line is today’s answer to the decades old problem of delivering orthodontic instruments with adequate corrosion resistance.
Our M2 Plier Line has the same 420 series stainless steel box-jointed forgings as our original tough and rugged tool steel pliers. What makes the M2 Plier Line extraordinary is the highly corrosion-resistant steel inserts that not only withstand the rigors of cutting, bending, and forming highly tensile orthodontic wires, but contain the highest level of chromium available in any tool steel.
Because of the chemical and basic elemental properties of this new compaction metal - combined with an advanced processing methodology - we have found a material with significant advantages over both tool steel and tungsten carbide. The M2 Plier Line is the solution to brittle, fractured carbide inserts, flaking chrome plating, and all the other compromises previously neccessary to make corrosion resistant instruments.
Although dry heat is still the recommended method for sterilizing orthodontic pliers, NPI’s M2 Plier Line will stand up to all methods of sterilization. Most inserted pliers shown in this catalog are available with the M2 upgrade. Before you decide on a less than optimum alternative, call our plier experts for more information.
