BEYOND STEEL®

Der Hochleistungswerkstoff von DAVOSA, BEYOND STEEL®, besitzt Materialeigenschaften der Superklasse. Es ist so schwer wie Gold (Dichte 19,3 g/cm³), ist so hart wie Diamant und hält höchster Hitze stand (Schmelzpunkt ist 3.422 °C). BEYOND STEEL® ist praktisch unverwüstlich, absolut beständig gegenüber chemischen Einflüssen sowie rost- und nickelfrei. Mit einer Härte, die viermal so hoch ist wie die von Titan und zweimal so hoch wie die von Stahl, haben wir mit BEYOND STEEL® den optimalen Werkstoff für die Lünetteninlays der neuen DAVOSA Argonautic Serie geschaffen.

High-Tech Keramik

Die farbige Einlage unserer Lünetten besteht in den meisten Fällen aus High-Tech Keramik und ist extrem kratzunempfindlich mit einer Härte (nach Vickers) von 1250 HV.
