Aug. 2, 2013
New group of instruments designed for performance.
CHICAGO, Illinois--Hu-Friedy, a leader in the manufacturing of dental instruments and products, has announced launch of the Black Line Surgical Instrument Collection.
The collection features a performance-engineered coating to enrich contrast and reduce light reflection during procedures in order to consistently deliver clinical outcomes.

The 51 handcrafted Hu-Friedy Black Line instruments include periosteals, periodontal knives, periotomes, luxating elevators, surgical curettes, bone chisels, and sinus lift instruments. The instruments were engineered to deliver efficiency throughout the entire perio and surgical procedure.

The collection features a performance-engineered coating for a harder, smoother surface, providing enhanced lubricity and edge retention. In addition, the black finish allows for visual acuity at the surgical site and underlying tissue.

Hu-Friedy solicited feedback from Key Opinion Leaders. According to Dr. Karl Koerner, the Black Line represents “a coming together of smart instrument usage and the newest technology, for a ‘home run’ in surgical armamentarium.” He added that “the enhanced lubricity, prolonged edge retention, black finish for contrast at the surgical site, and more ergonomic handle make this is a ‘must have’ for those doing exodontia.”

Dr. Peter Haupers Jr. added that “the edge remains nice and sharp for a long time—consistent with Hu-Friedy quality.”

Ken Serota, president of Hu-Friedy, said of the new collection, “We continually challenge ourselves to develop unique, high-quality instruments like the Black Line Collection. These instruments were truly developed with the practitioner in mind—providing a reliable solution that will advance their performance in even the most complicated surgical procedures. ”
