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.
