With bright white heads constructed of durable, high-performance ceramic, Komet USA’s Ceramic Cutters pair intuitive, gentle operation with absolute precision for shaping, trimming and cutting acrylic. 

The innovative cutters resist clogging and, with minimal heat build-up, inhibit material deformation and operator injury. The cutters impart ideally smooth acrylic surfaces for optimal results, time after time.

In the laboratory, the efficient cutters create perfectly smooth surfaces for a range of operations. The Komet® K261GSQ, for example, facilitates work on temporary-appliance acrylics that tend to clog other instruments, and it can even cut green-state zirconium dioxide, gliding through the material with complete ease.

When in operation, the instrument generates less vibration than traditional tungsten-carbide cutters, thus facilitating the safe removal of objects from blanks.

At chairside, Komet® ceramic cutters are ideally suited for making minor adjustments to plastic elements and for trimming temporary appliances. Resistant to the corrosive effects of harsh chemicals used in reprocessing, the precise, smooth-running ceramic instruments maintain a brilliant white color throughout their long service life, and the blades retain their sharpness for an extended period.

The cutters are available in a choice of two types of toothing: ACR and GSQ. The ACR cutters can be used for trimming acrylics, providing excellent substance removal. The sharp toothing of the ACR ceramic cutters is gentle yet highly efficient and permits outstanding control.

The GSQ cutters are recommended for trimming soft acrylics and denture reline materials. They are ideally suited for materials that tend to clog, such as those used in the fabrication of temporary appliances.
