The Blackline® Highspeed Handpiece series features Carbon Fiber, the newest of Bien-Air’s technological advancements in dental handpieces. A light-weight core combined with optimal strength offers maneuverability and longevity for the user. The base of the handpiece is a composite of carbon fiber fabric (see yarn inset to the right), plus injection molded epoxy resin.
Vs. titanium: Gram for gram, Carbon Fiber has 10x the tensile strength of titanium.
Record-setting: The Bora and Prestige models in the Blackline series are the lightest Bien-Air handpieces created since the company’s first handpiece in 1969.
Built to last: The tensile strength of carbon fiber makes it extremely resistant to surface scratches, which ensures greater longevity.
Are you ready to apply this technology into your practice?
