Workholding composite hand clamps are constructed of reinforced polymers that combine high strength and light weight. The clamps are fabricated of an electrically non-conductive glass-reinforced nylon and are highly resistant to most acids, gases, chemicals, and elevated temperatures. They are for applications ranging from corrosive industrial environments to use in home workshops.
