We developed 3M™ Gripping Material TB731 as a firm, clear adhesive tape to enhance grip control and performance on everything from jackhammers, kayak paddles, handles, and work gloves. Our high friction tape contains thousands of micro gripping fingers and a flexible pressure sensitive adhesive backing that sticks on contact to wide variety of surfaces, including metals, plastics, and sealed wood.
Thousands of micro gripping ﬁngers enhance traction and hold
Helps keep a firm grip in wet, humid or oily conditions
Acrylic adhesive bonds to a wide variety of surfaces including LSE plastics, powder coated paints, and lightly oiled metals
Performs well across a broad range of temperatures
Works well with bare hands and can be mated for ultimate gripping performance
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
We manufacture 3M Gripping Material using exclusive propietary 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. As firmly as the material holds, it releases just as easily. Both abrasion and puncture resistant, 3M Gripping Material performs well across a broad range of temperatures ranging from -40-40°F to 160°F (-40°C to 71°C)F to 160-40°F to 160°F (-40°C to 71°C)F (-40-40°F to 160°F (-40°C to 71°C)C to 71-40°F to 160°F (-40°C to 71°C)C) indoors and outdoors.
Gripping materials are available in roll or sheet form in a wide range of tactility from ultra soft to ﬁrm. 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 use conditions is a critical feature for your product, durability of the 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.
