September 4, 2019 – Safety tool supplier Cementex recently introduced double-insulated 9-in. universal pliers, designed for technicians to use in arc-flash environments.

The tools feature a yellow ‘warning’ layer underneath an orange outer layer. This way, if the outside insulation is damaged, the yellow layer begins to show, alerting the user to the safety risk in time to replace the tool.

The heat-treated pliers feature a compact head with serrated jaws and crushing area. Their bypass blades are designed for cutting round cable up to 9.2 mm thick or soft steel wire up to 2 mm thick. They can crimp non-insulated terminals and have been tested to 10,000 V AC and rated for 1,000 V AC when working on or around live parts.
