Cutting and Coating Technology
CarboTitanium Bonded®: blades are eight times harder than untreated stainless steel blades. Our patent-pending process creates a permanent molecular bond with the cutting surface so blades resist scratches, marks and stains. The blades will stay super sharp and smooth-cutting for years making them an exceptional value like all Westcott® products.
Titanium Bonded Non-Stick blades: are now six times longer lasting than our original untreated stainless steel blades. Westcott® uses a process that bonds titanium to the blades and then coats them with a breakthrough non-stick formula to produce an adhesive-resistant, easy-to-clean, and longer-lasting cutting edge. These scissors will stay sharp, smooth-cutting and residue-free for years.
Titanium Bonded Blades: Revolutionary cutting technology has made our patented Titanium Bonded Scissors® the most popular around the globe, and has helped them win the title of “The World’s Favorite Scissors™.” We not only make sure our scissors perform to the highest standard, but also integrate our technology into the blades of our sharpeners, paper trimmers, and craft tools.
Ceramic blade technology will stay sharper up to 10 times longer than conventional steel blades. They offer a safer alternative to steel blades, allowing you to use with handling safety in mind.
Antimicrobial Product Protection: Westcott offers a wide range of anti-microbial protected products that inhibit the growth of bacterial odors. This technology keeps products from degrading by preventing the growth of microorganisms. It's ideal for products that are shared around the home, office or school.
