Olight’s aluminum-body flashlights are made from durable aerospace aluminum alloy, making them very resistant to damage from impact, crushing, or bending, and allowing them to be made as small and light as possible without sacrificing strength. The aluminum is type III hard anodized for corrosion resistance and surface hardness; it is non-conductive as well. This material and treatment is renowned for its durability and is widely used to manufacture hard-use tactical products.
Olight also uses Polycarbonate/Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (PC/ABS) plastics, which are especially known for strength and excellent low temperature properties. PC/ABS blends withstand the stresses created by physical abuse and the effects of extremes in temperature. PC/ABS is used to make structurally strong parts for use in a wide variety of applications, including appliances, automotive, building and construction, chemical processing, consumer goods, electronics, health care, and packaging.
