(Electrical engineering: Electrical power)
Equipment such as hand-held domestic electric drilling machines has the additional
safety precaution of double insulation. The aluminum housing is intertwined with an injection molded inner nylon core to
combine the durability of an all metal body tool with the double insulation advantages of a tool with plastic housing. Double insulation is insulation that consists of both basic insulation and supplementary insulation.
