Product Applications

Golf Grips

It’s pouring rain on the golf course, and your club is slipping in your hands. Wouldn’t you love to have golf grips that give you almost 3X more grip in wet and sweaty conditions?

The Technology

Setex GeckoGrip® is a high friction microfiber surface inspired by the microscopic hairs, or setae, of a gecko’s foot. It can be incorporated into apparel, as well as injection molded parts, and offers these advantages:

  • Retains around 60-70% of their original friction in wet and oily conditions. (Competing materials, such as rubber, can lose nearly all their friction when exposed to wet/oily conditions residue-free removal.)
  • Can be provided in sheet form with a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) backing for incorporation onto textiles for sporting apparel applications.

Injection-Molded-Parts-chart

The Technology

Setex GeckoGrip 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 with and made from the same material as the part. These microfiber molded parts, using customer plastics, gain a significant increase in coefficient of friction, typically over 200% to skin in wet and oily conditions.
