Steritool Hand Tools are made from various Stainless Steel alloys specifically for use in critical/sterile environments. It was never intended to be characterized as a non-sparking tool. If struck hard enough, Stainless Steel may spark or generate enough heat at impact to ignite combustible gases or liquids.

Stainless Steel may also cause other alloys such as carbon steel to spark if struck hard enough.

At Steritool we strongly urge all non-sparking tool inquiries to be directed to an authority in the volatile chemicals industry to see what alloy is required for your specific environment.

We pride ourselves in having the ability to make most of our tools from any alloy and will be more than happy to quote making a tool from an alloy that best suits your environment.
