Setex® XG Extra Grip materials provide over 240% improvement in grip in slick conditions, especially for items in contact with skin. Key applications include socks, horse riding breeches, gloves, sporting equipment; and any moldable surface that touches.
nanoGriptech’s Setex® provides one of the best gripping / friction material solutions for product designers and manufacturing engineers who are frustrated with the limitations of rough-textured and soft-tacky alternatives. Currently available as a custom solution, Setex®-based gripping and friction material solutions are provided across a wide range of materials – and can even be integrated directly into the target product via in-mold designs for injection molded parts.
Range of Materials Supported: As a geometric design that is imparted on a material, Setex® XG enables high friction capabilities on textiles, plastics (bulk or film), elastomers, etc.—even as an in-mold design.
Higher Friction Performance than other Dry Materials: Through Van der Waals forces across millions of microscopic fibers, Setex® XG provides more gripping and friction than other dry alternatives.
Customizable Performance: Setex® XG can be designed with varying grip or friction strengths to fit your application’s needs.
Dry / Residue-Free: Setex® XG is completely dry, providing amazing gripping or friction without the stickiness and residue of chemically treated pads.
Comfort: Setex® XG can be tailored to a variety of materials and forms, eliminating the abrasive feel of sandpaper pads and the like.
Low Profile / Conformable: Setex® XG can be film -thin and conform to a wide range of shapes.
Setex® XG is a high friction microfiber surface inspired by the microscopic hairs, or setae, of a gecko’s foot that can be incorporated onto apparel or injection molded parts.
