Material Reference Guide

The information below is provided to help compare the various alloys and their respective properties.  Please note that not all tweezer patterns are available in all alloys.

CARBON STEEL:  Carbon steel is one of the hardest tweezer steels.  Carbon steel tips are very durable but because of this hardness, carbon steel tips are more brittle than some of the other steels.  Carbon steel is also highly magnetic and stains easily.

TITANIUM:  While not as hard as some of the other alloys, titanium tips are very flexible.  Another unique property of titanium is that it is 33% lighter than other stainless alloys.  Titanium is extremely corrosion and stain-resistant, making it the preferred choice for saltwater uses.  Titanium also has a high heat resistance in excess of 400 degrees Celcius and is completely non-magnetic.

STAINLESS STEEL:  The common name for various alloys composed of carbon steel and chromium.  Alloys considered stainless exhibit good stain resistance and have varying degrees magnetism.

INOX:  Inox is a specific stainless alloy composed of carbon steel and chromium.  Inox tips are more flexible than pure carbon steel but not as hard.  Inox has good stain resistance and is magnetic.

DUMOXEL:  Dumoxel is even more stain-resistant that Inox and is highly corrosion-resistant.  Tweezers made from this alloy have very soft, flexible tips.  Dumoxel is non-magnetic and exhibits high-temperature resistance.

DUMOSTAR:  This new alloy is a blend of steel, chromium, nickel, cobalt and has many of the best features of other alloys.  Dumostar is heat resistant to over 500 degrees Celcius and is completely non-magnetic.  Dumostar is extremely corrosion resistant and is one of the harder alloys.  Because of its unique composition, Dumostar tips are very flexible, are resistant to fatigue, and are capable of flexing far beyond other alloys without permanently deforming.
