Details
  • Very soft, plain backed gripping material designed to resist tearing in sew-on applications
  • Very soft, thermoplastic elastomer gripping polymer provides high friction properties with increased cushioning, comfort, flexibility and softness
  • Nylon fabric backing provides stretch in cross web direction
  • When mated, delivers high coefficient of friction properties, even in wet conditions
  • Designed to provide slip resistance and easy-release properties

Constructed with thousands of micro-replicated gripping fingers, 3M™ Gripping Material GM630 provides a lighter, yet tighter grip for maximum hold with minimum effort. Designed to enhance grip and reduce slippage, this product is an extremely soft gripping material. The nylon knit backing allows the material to be sewn to a variety of surfaces such as fabrics and leathers.

Easily Enhance Your Grip
When mated with another gripping material, our 3M™ Gripping Material GM630 provides the highest coefficient of friction properties of the gripping products. This very soft, grey gripping material utilizes our proprietary micro-replication technology to create thousands of tiny replicated fingers that enhance grip and reduce slippage. Used alone, this material provides a secure grip, but when used in conjunction with another gripping material, such as sewn into a glove and wrapped onto a handle bar, grip strength is maximized even in wet conditions. 3M™ Gripping Material GM630 is designed to be sewn using most commercially available equipment using a leather walking foot.

Recommended Applications

  • Athletic gloves
  • Industrial work gloves
  • Apparel
  • Bag handles and straps
  • Mated athletic glove-handle bar applications
  • Mated work glove-equipment applications

Here's a Grip Tip
If needed, plain backed 3M™ Gripping Materials can be bonded in place prior to sewing to prevent movement during the sewing process. Pressure sensitive adhesives, such as 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 6035PC or 6038PC, work well for temporary holding of the material. Plain-backed 3M™ Gripping Material products can be shear cut, die-cut, laser cut or converted by other applicable methods, and can be sewn to a wide variety of substrates using most commercially available equipment. Additional information on sewing techniques can be found on applicable 3M Plain Backed Data page.

Performance in a Wide Range of Temperatures
3M™ Gripping Material GM630 performs well across a broad range of temperatures, ranging from -40°F to 140°F (-40°C to 60°C) indoors and outdoors.

3M™ Gripping Material may outlast leather in a factory or in the field
About our 3M™ Gripping Materials
Our gripping materials are available in roll or sheet form in a wide range of tactility from very soft to firm. Soft gripping material products are designed to be more comfortable during skin contact and tend to be more flexible to contour more easily to tighter curves. Firm gripping material products are extremely durable, and tend to be stiffer. If prolonged service life in harsh use conditions is a critical feature for your product, durability of the gripping material increases with firmness. Actual service life will depend on frequency of use and severity of end use conditions, but typically, most 3M™ Gripping Material can outlast leather in a factory or in the field. 3M™ Gripping Material products are designed to be used alone, or as a two-part mated system. When used alone (on a single surface), the 3M™ Gripping Materials provide a strong secure grip. When used as a two-part mated system, for example, on a glove and handle bar, grip strength is maximized.
