Non Sparking Axe QTi Copper Titanium
We are pleased to introduce DRDO Developed & Patented Copper Titanium Non Sparking Safety Tools. Copper Titanium is a breakthrough innovation developed and patented by DRDO - DMRL Lab.
The use of Non-sparking tools is mandatory to provide protection against fires and explosions in environments where there is a possibility of sparks igniting flammable solvents, vapors, liquids, dusts or residues.
Conventionally Non-Sparking Hand Tools were available of the following two materials i.e Copper Beryllium and Aluminium Bronze.
Copper Beryllium (Cu-Be) is an extremely hazardous alloy due to the toxicity associated with Beryllium. Use of Cu-Be hand tools or other parts, constantly exposes employees and contractors to a severe and often fatal lung disease caused by exposure to Beryllium. Many countries are thus severely curtailing use of Cu-Be or completely banning it. Due to the above reasons, some users have adopted Aluminium Bronze (Al-Br) as the preferred alternative for non-sparking tools. However, Al-Br is a very weak material having strength of about 60% of Cu-Be. These tools thus break very frequently leading to high consumption and risk of injury to the user.
Cu-Ti alloys “ being introduced as QTi is an excellent replacement for Copper Beryllium.
With the launch of Copper Titanium (QT) Non-Sparking Hand Tools alloys, we eliminate all the above disadvantages of Cu-Be or Al-Br and offer a superior and stronger material which non-hazardous and most importantly Made in India by a Company backed by technocrats with over 40 yrs. of collective manufacturing experience.
