In principle, the plastic used by KNIPEX insulates against electricity, but this property is not tested on the blue-and-red sleeves.
Other design features of the norm IEC 60900, such as slip protection, are also not met. Thus, pliers with blue-red handles are not permitted for work on electrical systems or for work under voltage.
