3M Scotch GM Gripping Tape
3M Scotch GM Gripping Material Tape consists of a high-friction surface with a thin flexible backing and acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive with liner. The tape can increase traction, reduce slip, and improve grip even in wet, and oily conditions. When used alone on a single surface, 3M gripping material provides a strong secure grip. When mated in a two-part system, for example on a glove and a handlebar grip, strength is maximized. Designed for peel and stick applications. As firmly as 3M gripping material holds, it releases just as easily. Performs across a broad range of temperatures ranges both indoors and outdoors. Markets served include sports, leisure, medical, construction, marine, general industrial, military and government. Based on 3M’s proprietary micro-replicated technology to add thousands of micro gripping fingers on one side of a flexible backing to enhance control and improve gripping performance. will increase holding power while using less force so helps decrease fatigue. 3M GM400 black and GM731 clear are both firm (very high tactility), adhesive backed gripping material which offers abrasion and puncture resistance . They offer very high durability, very high chemical resistance, and very high friction when mated (lower when unmated). 3M GM614 grey is an ultra soft (very low tactility) gripping material which offers some abrasion and puncture resistance. It has lower durability, lower chemical resistance, but offers the highest level of friction when unmated in dry or wet conditions. GM400 black offers very high UV resistance, GM731 clear above average UV resistance, and GM614 grey average UV resistance. Uses & Applications Truck, forklift, and auto steering wheels. Snow ski poles. Handrails and wheelchair handles. Smart phone cases. Water sport paddle handles. Bicycle handles. Industrial tool handles and levers. Fishing rods. Power and garden tool handles. Weight lifting equipment handles. Snow blower grips. Features & Benefits Offers ultra high durability and high coefficient of friction properties when mated and low coefficient of friction when non-mated. Thousands of gripping fingers offer the ability to grip lighter and hold tighter, even in wet and oily conditions. Pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive bonds to a wide variety of surfaces, including hard-to-bond-to surfaces such as low surface energy plastics, powder coated paints, and lightly oiled metals. Slip resistant, vibration dampening, and easy release properties.
