Dayton, Ohio -- June 17, 2014 -- Steck Manufacturing Company has released another tool kit designed to help technicians safely repair aluminum. The company notes that many vehicles use aluminum now, including the new Ford F-150, and says that using everyday steel tools can cause galvanic corrosion. Steck also notes that many rubber dollies are not heavy enough to work effectively doing body repair.
Soft Strike Rubber Dolly Body Covers and Soft Strike Dinging Spoon Cover are made from Buna rubber for your steel heel dolly and dinging spoon. Steck's Soft Strike Hammer Cover is made from vinyl to allow technicians to easily transition from working body tools on steel to aluminum without the worry of cross
contamination and galvanic corrosion.
The red rubber removable covers are simply applied to the tools you already own. The Soft Strike Dolly Cover also eliminates the problem of a rubber dolly not being heavy enough to work effectively by allowing you to simply add the cover to your existing steel dolly.
Steck says the Soft Strike Covers eliminate the need to invest in redundant, special aluminum application tools. Allows the safe and uncomplicated conversion of existing steel tools to work on aluminum; the removable covers prevent cross contamination and galvanic corrosion.
