Material

Phenolic

Also referred to as Thermoset, this material has excellent chemical resistance, electrical insulation, heat resistance, and surface hardness.

Chloroprene Rubber Shore A Durometer 65

More popularly known as Neoprene, this material is "soft" to the touch yet provides the strength and durability needed for industrial applications.

Inserts

All parts are insert molded which means the inserts are incorporated or molded into the plastic at the time of processing. This feature provides the part with the ideal strength and therefore, provides the maximum torque capabilities.
