Non-sparking tool material is made of beryllium bronze and aluminum bronze. Beryllium bronze alloy and aluminum bronze alloy do not spark when impacted or rubbed, which are very suitable for making safety tools used in explosive, flammable, strong magnetic and corrosive occasions.
According to Directive 1999/92/EC, steel tools are considered to be a source of ignition and are therefore unsafe for use in the presence of explosive atmospheres. In such environments, non-sparking tools must be used.
