CARL MARTIN GmbH – Solingen



The orthodontic pliers are manufactured using the best- quality materials and computer-aided machines (CNC processing = computerised numerical control). This makes for extremely precise fabrication with the lowest possible tolerance range. This permits you, as the user, to use this continuously for the intended area of application. 


We have formulated specifications pertaining to the use of the wires and ligatures involved for each product (to the extent that this is necessary). 


There is a marking on the pliers themselves that specifies the max. wire thickness to be used. 

The use of wires that are too thick (i.e. wrong) can occasionally result in fractures to the hard metal inlays (TC). Please note that we undertake no guarantees in such instances. 

Please note that all instruments equipped with a mechanical hinge (all plier variants) are to be oiled on a temporary basis. For this purpose, we recommend our special instrument oil (item no. 990).

RH Material tempering (Rock Hard)
Diffusion coating (tempering) of instrument tips with a hardness grade of approx. 70 HRC. The tempering penetrates (diffuses) into the material and constitutes a firm bond. Removal, such as is effected in simple coating or TC inlay, is thus impossible. Furthermore, the material is very hard, so that the work part cannot evince appreciable wear and tear or warping.
