We all know that many tools can be prone to rust which is never a good thing. It lessens the life of your tools and reduces efficiency and reliability on the job. Thankfully, Wera has stepped up to make tools out of stainless steel to not only prevent rust, but to also increase hardness for industrial applications. Wera further strengthens their tools increasing their hardness and resistance to rust. With a special vacuum ice hardening process. In addition to this, tools in Wera’s stainless VDE series are insulated and tested to comply with international regulations for safe use around electrical voltage.
