Safety Instructions

TO AVOID FIRE/EXPLOSION

  1. AMPCO tools protect against mechanical sparks (impact and friction) but NOT static sparks which can ignite flammable vapors, liquids, dusts and residues.
  2. AMPCO tools should be grounded if there is a concern for static spark.
  3. Keep non-sparking tools clean and free from impregnated particles and other contaminants.
  4. AMPCO and other copper-based tools should not be used in direct contact with acetylene, ethylene oxide, azide salts and explosives such as amatol, DBX, and lead azide.
