Our Setex grip product materials recently passed ISO 10993-10 Certification – Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices, Part 10:Tests for Irritation & Skin Sensitization. Having this credential means these high friction microfiber materials have third-party approval as products that can safely contact skin, even when wet and oily.
Our material allows products like Temple Tip Grips for Eyewear to secure your glasses better than ever. Setex’s anti-slipping properties are so strong that when the material comes into contact with your skin, even if it’s wet and oily, you still feel comfortable and in control.
Setex is a high friction microfiber surface inspired by the microscopic hairs or setae on a gecko’s feet. The material is ideal for Nose Pads for Eyewear, Anti-Slip Grips and other products that come into contact with your skin to enhance your comfort. Setex’s advantages over other materials are that it retains 70% of its original friction in wet conditions, and 30% in oily conditions. Competing materials can lose 90% of their friction in the same conditions. It’s also dry and residue-free, which means you get superior gripping or friction without the messiness of other materials.
Setex microfibers are designed like geckos’ toe hairs, or setae, to provide a comfortable and secure grip.
Thousands of mushroom shaped fibers mimic geckos’ toe hairs - i.e. setae.
Flexible Setex fibers provide soft, comfortable contact to skin.
Setex’s microstructures provide a secure grip in wet and oily conditions.
