Rave Scientific offers the EM-Tec ZC replaceable ceramic tips tweezers. These tweezers combine the advantages of the unique high strength/high hardness ceramic tweezers tips with the firm handles of stainless steel tweezers. The material used for the ZC replaceable ceramic tips is a zirconia toughened alumina (ZTA).
The ceramic ZC tips exhibit both high strength and high hardness with excellent chemical stability and high temperature stability (1400°C). The hard surface makes the tips extreme wear resistant. Other advantages of the ZC ceramic tips are no open porosity and a relative low density (light). The colour of the ZC ceramic tips is white.
Applications for the EM-Tec ZC replaceable ceramic tips tweezers include handling of hard materials, handling of samples or components during thermal, chemical and soldering processes. Generally used where very rigid tips are required.
