We developed 3M™ Gripping Material TB400 as a firm, adhesive-backed material to enhance grip control and performance on everything from jackhammers, kayak paddles, skateboards, and work gloves. Our high friction material contains thousands of micro gripping fingers and a flexible adhesive backing that can easily be applied to a wide variety of surfaces
Thousands of micro gripping ﬁngers enhance traction and hold
Helps keep a firm grip in wet, humid or oily conditions
Provides maximum hold with minimum effort
Performs well across a broad range of temperatures
Offers ultra high durability and high gripping properties when mated
Applications: Truck, forklift, and auto steering wheels, handrails, industrial tool handles and levers, power tool handles, garden tool handles, snow blower grips, water ski poles, snow ski poles, bicycle handles, fishing rods, wheelchair handles, weight lifting equipment handles
Trial bag formats are great for introductory testing or small volume jobs, and are ideal for retail storefronts and online shoppers
including low surface energy plastics, powder coated paints, and lightly oiled metals. 3M Gripping Material uses an exclusive proprietary technology to add thousands of micro gripping ﬁngers on a ﬂexible backing to increase control and improve gripping performance (also known as coefficient of friction) in dry, wet, even oily conditions. The material holds firmly yet releases easily. Both abrasion and puncture resistant, our 3M Gripping Material performs well across a broad range of temperatures ranging from -40°F to 160°F (-40°C to 71°C) indoors and outdoors.
We manufacture 3M Gripping Materials in roll or sheet form and in a wide range of tactility, from ultra soft to ﬁrm. Our soft gripping material products are designed to be more comfortable during skin contact and tend to be more ﬂexible to contour more easily to tighter curves. Firm gripping material products are extremely durable, and tend to be stiffer. If prolonged service life in harsh environments is a critical feature for your product, the durability of our gripping material increases with ﬁrmness. Actual service life will depend on frequency of use and severity of end use conditions, but typically, most 3M Gripping Material may outlast leather in a factory or in the ﬁeld.
