New color-coded scalers stay sharp.

CHICAGO, Illinois--Hu-Friedy, a leader in the manufacturing of dental instruments, has announced the addition of Hu-Friedy’s Resin 8 Colors to the company's hand scaling line.

Available in eight colors, the collection of 80, colored resin scalers feature lightweight, ergonomic handles with the added benefit of staying sharper longer than other scalers.

One advantage of colored resin handles is the ability to easily identify instruments in the operatory. With Resin 8 Colors, each scaler color follows a color-coding system based on the specific areas of the mouth. In addition, Resin 8 Colors feature Hu-Friedy’s proprietary EverEdge technology.

EverEdge technology, found only in Hu-Friedy curettes and scalers, is a stainless steel alloy that provides durable working ends that stay sharper longer than other scalers. To the clinician, this means less frequent sharpening, less hand fatigue, and comfort throughout the day.

“Resin 8 Colors is a great example of Hu-Friedy customer-centric product innovation,” said Ken Serota, president, Hu-Friedy Manufacturing. “These hand scalers utilize a color coding system, and are designed to stay vibrant through extended sterilization cycles. And when combined with EverEdge technology, the clinician experiences a superior resin instrument that provides more efficiency and better clinical outcomes.”
