Stainless Steel
Ball End Hex Keys

Manufactured from Carpenter Custom 465 stainless steel. All hex keys are polished and passivated.

Despite the numerical name assigned to this alloy, Custom 465 is not a "400 series" stainless steel at all. It's a precipitation hardening (PH) stainless, with corrosion resistant properties approaching that of 304. Combined with an end product hardness of HRC54, this alloy is ideal for high torque applications in any critical environment.

Custom 465 is a martensitic, age-hardenable stainless steel alloy.
This alloy is magnetic.

About our Ball Drivers

Shafts are manufactured from hardened and polished Carpenter 465 stainless steel. This stainless alloy, used for our screwdrivers as well, offers exceptional strength, hardness (54HRC), and elasticity. The shafts are polished and passivated before the handles are molded.

Nylon Handles are molded from Dupont Zytel 101 Nylon. This material is intended for steam autoclaving at temperatures reaching 350˚F. It is non-soluble and has a dry temperature range of -40˚F to 212˚F. We use virgin material with no colorant added, which can sometimes result in slight shade variations in the finished handles from off-white to a dark ivory. This reflects batch drying time differences in the processing of the material and does not affect the sterilization or longevity of the tool. Zytel 101 is a versatile material, and suitable for other sterilization processes as well, such as gamma or EtO. Compatibility testing for your specific sterilization process is recommended.

Stainless steel handles are precision machined from 316 stainless steel. With a similar design to our nylon handles, they are comfortable to grip and hold in your hand. The solid stainless handle adds a bit of weight; when you hold this tool in your hand you know you're holding a tool built to last.

Sizes:
Nylon handles come in two sizes depending on the shaft diameter. Large handles are 4 1/4" and come on the 3/16" through 3/8", and 5.0mm through 10.0mm. Small handles are 3 1/8" long and come on the 1/16" through 5/32", and 1.5mm through 4.0mm
Stainless handles come in three sizes depending on the shaft diameter. Large handles are 4 1/4" and come on the 3/16" through 3/8", and 5.0mm through 10.0mm. Small handles are 3 1/4" long and come on the 7/64" through 5/32", and 3.5mm through 4.0mm. Extra Small handles are 2 1/2" long and come on the 1/16" through 1/8", and 1.5mm through 3.0mm.

 Stainless Steel Ball Hex Drivers
Manufactured from Carpenter Custom 465 stainless steel.
Available with Zytel nylon or stainless steel handles

 

 

 

Custom 465 is a martensitic, age-hardenable stainless steel alloy.
This alloy is magnetic.
316 is an austenitic, non magnetic alloy. Due to the contact between the shaft and handle, these drivers are considered magnetic.
