About GRIP Metal
GRIP Metal™ is a consistently shaped field of hooks formed onto ultra-thin gauge sheet metals, allowing the GRIP-applied metal surfaces to physically adhere with other materials without the use of traditional adhesives or crude mechanical attachment technologies. Used as either a point of bonding for varying materials within larger structures, or as a mediating layer between different materials, GRIP provides stunning shear resistance, transferring the core strengths of metal to lightweight laminate or composite materials.
GRIP Metal™ provides designers, engineers and material scientists a brand new foundation for the design and manufacture of complex forms that require a new generation of stronger, lighter materials.
