GripsFoam Rubber Grips, Tubes & Wrap

Made from a variety of proprietary foam formulas, GripWorks’ line of foam grips contains the solution for almost any hand grip application. Styles range from standard foam grips to extruded foam sleeves and tubes. The rubber grip materials come in a wide variety of formulas, densities, and finishes. The rubber material is processed in-house, fed into the extruder, cured and cooled resulting in soft foam grips, tubes, or GripWrap.

A GripWorks representative can help guide you through the process for designing a foam rubber grip or tube for your application. Standard styles are listed below or you can create a custom foam grip with the help of our design engineering team.

As you may imagine, not all rubber grips are created alike. Different rubber and plastic compounds are used to achieve foam materials with very different physical characteristics and properties. At GripWorks our chemists have spent a significant amount of time developing materials that focus on meeting the unique needs of our clients.

Most of these formulas are available in multiple densities. Density is the measurement of material per cubic inch and it is highly related to the durability and cushion that a grip will possess.
