We use micro surface engineering of friction to optimize grip or slip performance of interface materials and operating conditions.
Our grip solutions have unique value:
High grip when wet. “The wetter the better”
Formed during device manufacturing, typically using existing manufacturing processes
No added chemicals, coatings or materials
Usually made of the same material as the current OEM device
Never sticky, abrasive or aggressive
Offers a simple route for device qualification; often 510(k)
