Maximise Traction and Comfort with H3422 Aerated Grip Tape


Aerated grip tapes are an effective way to easy apply an abrasive non-slip material whilst ensuring that there are no air bubbles. With a conventional grip tape it is always possible that air bubbles will be visible. The air bubbles are unsightly on the finished board, they are highly noticeable, you can remove them by slightly pricking the bubbles and then pressing the film back down, this is readily done but is time consuming.

H3422 is an aerated grip tape. We produce the grip tape in the conventional manner; a self-adhesive flexible plastic film, apply a really thick flexible resin base, apply aluminium oxide (an extremely tough, diamond hard abrasive mineral), we put a further resin coat down then once produced we pass the entire material through a huge evil looking roller. The roller is completely covered with hundreds of micro punches. The punches are laid out in a regular pattern in a grid format. The punches are only extremely thin and are just big enough to create a micro hole. The holes are just big enough to allow a small quantity of air to travel through, as the H3422 is applied and pressed down, any trapped air is displaced and escapes through the holes. Once pressed down the adhesive provides a permanent application, on any skateboard or longboard the H3422 grip tape makes for an incredible looking finish, no bubbles, no ripples just a great finish.

Can You Use H3422 Grip Tape Commercially?

H3422 grip tape is often used for commercial applications. We have commercial customers who have to apply very large sections of grip tape, due to the scale of large sheets there is a greater chance of air bubbles being present, with H3422 the air bubbles dissipate through the micro holes allowing for a guaranteed 100% perfect appearance.
