Last week at RDH Under One Roof in Las Vegas, Hu-Friedy revealed “The Uncoated Truth” about American Eagle’s claims around their “never-sharpen” XP Technology Scaler.
The TRUTH is:
- The XP scalers CANNOT be sharpened due to their coating
- When compared to XP scalers, EverEdge scalers are 30% sharper out-of-the-box and maintain this advantage after use.
- Sharpness is what matters most as it is critically important to delivering superior clinical outcomes.
How do we know all of this? Independent testing was conducted by Cutlery Allied Trades Research Association (CATRA), a specialized blade laboratory, who evaluated Hu-Friedy EverEdge scalers alongside American Eagle XP coated scalers.
The links below are for your reference and review. They provide even more information around the conclusion of this study:
While it’s very rare that Hu-Friedy would go to such lengths to offer a point-of-view on a competitor, we felt it was our responsibility as the industry leaders to call out the misleading information that’s being shared in the market. Having proof that our EverEdge scalers are the sharpest out-of-the-box and retain their sharp edge longer than our competitor means that they perform in a way that delivers the BEST CLINICAL OUTCOMES for patients.
