German translation:Kunststoffhammer - hart
Explanation:
The reference shows you a nice picture of such a mallet. VEP stands for viscoelastic plastic, you could translate it as 'Hammer mit viskoelastischem Kunststoffkopf - hart'. The high density plastic is used for e.g. sheet metal work, the soft version ('weich') for wood etc. I even have seen the German term ' Plastikhammer rückstossfrei' - now that is really something to consider.
