Surgical Holdings New Duo Surface Finish is applied across all our general veterinary surgery theatre range of instruments. This new finish, has been developed by looking at what is important in a modern day surgical instrument:
Reduce glare - The back half of the instrument is highly polished to remove and imperfections and marks; only then will it have a light wet bead blast applied to it, to give a distinctive high end finish.
The working end is bright polished by our expert instrument finishers. This addresses the requirement for enhanced cleaning efficacy. Bright polish is the best finish to ensure corrosion resistance on the instrument and a smoother finish also ensures reduced protein and biofilm adherence to the surgical instrument
This design has been exclusively Design protected by Surgical Holdings and is only available through us or an appointed distributor
Many of our instruments will also have distinct design differences with the user and patient in mind
