During high-temperature sterilization, a presence or traces of disinfectant or water may cause rusting.
Do not exceed the maximum allowed exposure time and/or temperature during autoclave or dry-air sterilization. This can result in a loss of corrosion resistance of the steel.
After autoclave or dry-air sterilization, you must leave instruments in the autoclave or drying oven until they cool down completely (at least one hour). Otherwise, due to the sharp temperature drop, steel deteriorates on the molecular level (loss of hardness), and resharpening will be required much more often.
* The manufacturer is not liable for any damage to the instrument if disinfection and sterilization guidelines are not adhered to.
** Please note the coloured line on the bit may come off with sterilisation this is why the grit type is engraved on the product.
*** Corrosion-resistant qualities of steel are preserved only if all rules and instructions are followed, and only if high-quality products for disinfection and sterilization with proper certification are used.
Disinfect and sterilize tools according to the guidelines
Professionally sharpen tools when necessary to avoid performance degradation
Store in dry conditions and away from children
Store instruments with the blades facing upwards
Use protective casing for long term storage or travel
Avoid contact of instruments with one another to avoid damaging edges of separate instruments
Do not drop or knock instruments against hard surfaces as this may cause damage to the cutting edges
