The PTFE (Teflon) coated blade has been developed to provide a lower cost, low-temperature generating 940 replacement blade. This is particularly useful in pediatric applications, or simply any ortho clinic where particular attention is paid to blade cutting temperature over time. Thick casts, long leg casts, hip spicas, and body jackets are all time-consuming casts to remove, where build-up of heat at the blade/cast interface becomes a concern. Users have reported lower blade temps, likely attributable to the reduced friction generated between the Teflon coated blade surface and synthetic casting materials being transsected. These blades also offer impressive durability.
