Enhance traction on handles, shafts and equipment where having a secure grip provides a performance advantage. A lighter, more reliable grip can reduce worker fatigue and increase productivity.
Versatile Solutions...Adhesive-Backed, Plain-Backed, or Molded
Adhesive-backed 3M™ Gripping Material Really Sticks
Adhesives-backed versions are made with high-performance pressure sensitive acrylic adhesives, which gives it the ability to stick on contact to many surfaces such as: metals, plastics, and sealed woods for a fast, easy increase in traction.
Plain-backed for sew-on applications
Plain-backed products provide some stretch, and are designed for sew-on applications such as gloves, where fabrics or leather are used.
Molded grips can be slipped over handles and shafts increasing grip. 3M™ high durability molded grips can be custom designed and manufactured for different high volume applications such as tool handles or shafts.

Versatile Product Endures Demanding Conditions
Durability matched to the job
Wherever enhanced grip traction will give you a performance advantage, 3M can help. 3M™ Gripping Material products are available with a range of durability, tactility, and friction options to choose from.
Softer Means Greater Friction
Softer 3M™ Gripping Material products are designed to be more comfortable during skin contact and tend to be more flexible to contour more easily to curves with small radii. The softer the product, the greater the friction, the lower the durability.
Firmer Means Greater Durability
Firmer 3M™ Gripping Material products are stiffer in nature and are designed for harsher environments where increased durability is required. The firmer the product, the lower the friction (unless mated), the greater the durability.
Maximize performance. Minimize effort.
