Reduced exposure to nickel. Plating with non-reactive metals such as gold & platinum reduces exposure to nickel - a metal found in stainless steel that is a common skin allergen.
Corrosion-resistant. Gold & platinum are impervious to both moisture and acid and will not oxidize, even when exposed to sterilizing solutions.
Note: Platinum is harder than gold and better suited for general wear and tear, which is why we chose this metal to plate the tips.
Cork has antimicrobial properties and provides a non-abrasive holder for the precious metal plating.
