SPI Supplies® Brand Ceramic Tipped Tweezers
Using the newest zirconia-based ceramics technology to produce the worlds finest ceramic tips on tweezers anywhere!
These fine, precision made ceramic tipped tweezers give all the best advantages of
ceramics, including: high resistance to chemicals, excellent electrical
insulation, unequalled wear and heat resistance and of course complete
freedom from metallic contamination. Virtually nothing will ever leach out
of these high technology zirconia ceramic tips to contaminate and ruin an
experiment. Also, outstanding properties for temperature extremes at both
very high and very low (cryo) temperatures.
We now add the first of what will be a growing family of EDS compatible
ceramic tipped tweezers for those applications requiring conductivity in
the tweezer tips.
Soft and silver solder will not adhere to the tips of these ceramic tipped tweezers
Temperature range of use:
From cryogenic temperatures up to 1000°C without changes in the properties of the ceramic tips.
Other useful information:
SPI Supplies also offers what we call all ceramic tweezers.
They might not be immediately obvious, but they do have some advantages over the ceramic tipped tweezers,
for example, the zirconia based ceramic is highly resistant to static charging. For example, the all ceramic
tweezers are much less likely to collect dust particles from the air. They are also the recommended version
of this type of product for clean room use. Hence, for instances where charging is detrimental, we would
recommend the all ceramic over the ceramic tipped tweezers.
About the only chemical that will attack this particular zirconia based ceramic is HF.
And while these ceramic tweezers will not last forever, they will last much longer than
metal tweezers being used in the same kind of application. Hence their apparent higher
price might really be higher in the long run.
Useful lifetime expectancy:
The lifetime any one user will experience will depend on what is being
picked up and how carefully the tweezers are being used. In general, the
ceramic tweezers should last quite some time in comparison to metal tweezers
with tips that can be easily misaligned.
