Resistick II™ coated blade, ball and needle electrodes are expertly coated with PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). They move more effectively through tissue because they resist eschar build-up making them much more efficient during surgical procedures. Unlike common stainless steel electrodes with a propensity to accumulate the discarded blood and tissue, Resistick II™ coated electrodes simply wipe clean. Just use a damp sponge or cloth to almost effortlessly clean the debris off the Resistick II™ electrodes. Standard stainless steel electrodes are unquestionably much more difficult to clean. As they say, "Time is Money"!To guarantee the consistency and thickness of the Resistick II™ coating, Bovie® utilizes an Ionic Backscatter measuring system which helps promote accurate and consistent coating thickness. By controlling the thickness of the coating, Resistick II™ by Bovie® gives the surgeon the optimal performance in each of the 20 different coated electrode styles.
