Our goal is to ensure that any tool organizer you get from Olsa Tools is built from the most solid and professional-grade materials to deliver outstanding performance and protection for your tools. Painted steel, polypropylene, anodized aluminum, POM, and rare-earth magnets are the components used for designing most of Olsa Tools’ Organizers. They will not only keep your tools neat and orderly, but will give you durability and assurance that they will hold your tools securely. Here you can look into these materials more closely.
Painted steel is the material our magnetic metal wrench holder is made out of and it serves multiple purposes. Powder coated steel provides a durable holder with an added protective layer to avoid scratches and rust. The coating process also gives the wrench organizer a uniform black color finish with an aesthetic appearance, perfect for your workstation.
Polypropylene, also known as PP, is a semi-rigid plastic material with versatile applications. It is a linear hydrocarbon polymer which resists cracking from stress and presents high chemical and heat resistance compared to other types of engineering plastics. While regular plastics melt at around 100°C, PP has a melting temperature of 160°C, which gives it the perfect toughness to hold your most-used tools without deforming. Our bestselling magnetic socket holders, hex bit organizers, and magnetic wrench holders are engineered from PP.
Aluminum is one of the lightest metals on earth, yet it is strong and flexible enough to be used for tool organizers. A key factor in what makes aluminum a top choice in modern fabrication processes is its corrosion resistance. Aluminum will naturally form a thin natural layer of oxide film that protects itself from any further damage. Contrary to steel where oxidation flakes off and continues to damage the part, the aluminum oxide layer acts like a shield that avoids any further oxidation of the aluminum.
What “anodized” refers to is the anodizing process that our aluminum socket rails go through to precisely control the creation of this protective aluminum oxide layer. After the rails are extruded and machined, they are submerged in an electrolytic bath, which involves a low-voltage electrical current that helps create a perfectly consistent layer of aluminum oxide which improves the wear resistance for a more durable socket rail. After anodization, the rails are then colored with dyes which bond to the porous surface of the oxidized coating which results in their bright colors that really make your workspace pop! Choose between seven different colors to match with your tools setup.
POM stands for polyoxymethylene, also known as acetal plastic. POM is a semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic with key properties that ensure outstanding performance in terms of strength and flexibility for greater durability. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio, as well as chemical and corrosion resistance.
When compared to other thermoplastics, POM has a higher toughness, impact resistance, strength, and stiffness. Its semi-flexible nature makes it an ideal material for our magnetic screwdriver organizer.
Our magnetic screwdriver organizers have NdFeB, which is made from alloys of rare-earth elements and is the strongest type of permanent magnet in the world! With a tetragonal crystal formed of neodymium, iron, and boron, these rare-earth magnets deliver stronger and higher magnetic properties than ceramic magnets. All of these properties provide the ideal strength to withstand the heavy weight of your screwdrivers, ratchets, wrenches, and other tools.
Standing behind our Limited Lifetime Warranty is our top priority, that’s why the materials in our products are carefully selected for each application. Plus, they are professionally tested to ensure reliability under real-life circumstances. If you’re looking for a useful storage system that won’t break the bank, our tool organizers are what you need! Shop our tool organizers here:
