While our Boron Carbide Ceramic coating will last 10 times non coated blades, excellent for abrasive films. If your substrate is sticky or gummy, causing a buildup on cutting edge, we offer a 100% Teflon coated razor.

Finally for optimum Blade performance, we offer solid Tungsten Carbide and Zirconia Ceramic blade materials that will perform 60/80% longer than non-coated Razors. Our solid Carbide blades are produced ultra sub micron grain Tungsten Carbide. Extremely wear resistant with hardness of RC 80. Ideal for white films and re-sharpenable for 3/4 additional runs.
