GRIPMetal™ can be fabricated
with a variety of materials and composites
Featuring precisely designed hooks that give designers, engineers and scientists a brand-new foundation for design and manufacture of complex forms in composites, GRIPMetal transfers the core strengths of a metal substrate to other materials. Consisting of a consistently shaped field of micro-scaled hooks that are formed onto ultra-thin gauge sheet metals, using robust mechanical adhesion to overcome the challenges of bonding different materials together.
Potential applications range from strengthening thin-gauge composite materials in papers, woods and plastics, to large- scale use in construction technologies and materials.
