Conformable anti slip tape has a class O, dead soft aluminium foil backing.
The advantage of using a foil instead of a conventional plastic is for the following reasons; Foil has zero stretch tolerances unlike a plastic, it will not be stretched. When a plastic stretches, it wants to revert to its original state so will lift from an irregular substrate. The foil has no memory, it can be pressed into place and will remain in that shape.
The upper surface of Conformable safety-grip tape is a conventional abrasive, this results in exceptionally high grip levels (coefficient of friction), the abrasive upper surface provides grip even in wet or dirty conditions.
The diamond hard mineral that is used ensures that good grip is obtained. Conformable anti slip tape is an extremely popular material.
Grip tape can also be referred to as:
- Non slip tape
- Anti slip tape
- Safety grip
- Checker plate tape
- Aluminium backed tape
