Laboratory Tongs Information
Laboratory tongs are tools used for grasping and lifting materials or labware. Most tongs are sized to effectively fit different types of labware including crucibles, beakers, and test tubes. They can be made from various materials depending on the application. Stainless steel is one of the most common materials due to its strength and corrosion resistance. Laboratory tongs are often covered with a cloth, rubber or PTFE material for better grip and scratch free performance.
Search for Laboratory tongs in the IHS Standards Store for information on proper design and function.
