  • There is another option to give the rubber tubing and foam grips a different look and feel. Known as a sculpted or buffed foam grip or tube, in this process the skin is removed through a grinding action resulting in a grip or tubing with an upscale, cushioned appearance and a no-slip finish. GripWorks created various unique contour designs for this buffed foam process allowing them to offer multiple style foam grips featuring tapered varieties and more. Although the straight cut ends of the rubber tubing or foam grip do not need further processing, there is a choice to add a finished look to the end or ends. Known as radiused ends, the grinding action uniformly rounds off the ends of the foam grip or rubber tubing.

  • Ethylene propylene diene Monomer (M-class) rubber is a type of synthetic rubber, an elastomer. Playgrounds and swimming pool decks use EPDM for some components. Many industries use EPDM rubber including the roofing and automotive markets. The main property of EPDM material is its resistance to extreme outdoor elements, such as water and intense sunlight. "Who hasn't left the rake out in the yard all day and all night after a storm? Manufacturers know this will happen, and they need confidence in a grip or tube when they slide it over their garden rakes and other equipment," says Jeff John, National Sales Manager for GripWorks. Further confirmation comes from Jeff Barket, Director of Sales and Marketing. "EPDM rubber grips and tubing are essential to providing protection from severe weather conditions and other abuses. GripWorks provides other original equipment manufacturers with a product that meets their needs and, our foam grips and tubing are produced in the USA," said Mr. Barket.

    For years GripWorks has been producing EPDM grips and tubing, but when the Chinese market began offering foam tubing and grips with a soft-to-the-touch feel, EPDM took a back seat. Although, initially struggling in efforts to find an equivalent, and after years of trying, GripWorks can now provide foam grips and tubing in the same soft feel that has become so familiar with the foreign product. The new EPDM grips and foam tubes not only meet the requirement for softness, they also maintain the durability consistent with EPDM materials. Best of all, purchasing agents forced to buy from outside the USA can now be relieved of the obstacles associated with such long distance sourcing.
