Who Can Use Our Products

nanoGriptech’s unique dry adhesive and gripping surface is mechanical in nature, so it naturally leaves no residue and is skin friendly.

Product Applications

Friction Enhancement to Skin

Current gripping material used on orthotics, braces, prosthetics, face masks and other medical equipment that comes in contact with skin often slip, become contaminated or use materials that smell over time. Such materials do not work well with concave surfaces or in situations that need low profile, non-tacky gripping.

The Technology

Setex® XG is a high friction microfiber surface inspired by the microscopic hairs, or setae, of a gecko’s foot that can be incorporated into injection molded parts.

nanoGriptech will treat the molding tool's surface so that the resulting molded part is produced with high friction microfibers on the surface, directly integrated and made out of the same material as the part. These microfiber molded parts, using customer plastics, gain a significant increase in the coefficient of friction, typically over 200% to skin in wet and oily conditions.

Coefficient of Friction to Synthetic Skin

Medical Wrapping Tape

nanoGriptech’s tape technology provides adhesion strength to itself, without leaving any residue, on smooth, wet, or slippery surfaces.
