What material is used for grips?

Our contoured foam hand grips are available in two different versions: one is manufactured with EPDM rubber while the other is manufactured from NPVC rubber. Although the NPVC foam rubber is the standard in the industry, we also offer EPDM rubber for those interested in a more tactile feel. 

Regardless of the type of rubber you choose, our contoured foam hand grips are designed to meet your needs. Both types of rubber are available in medium density, providing the perfect combination of softness and durability. Since it’s the most versatile in nature, medium-density products are the most commonly used and should work in virtually any application.

Similarly, our foam rubber tubing is available in both EPDM and NPVC rubber. Since our flexible rubber tubing comes with straight end cuts, it’s easy to customize and even easier to install. While our contoured foam grips are only available in medium densities, our foam tubing is offered in both soft and medium densities. Although soft rubber tubing is slightly less durable than medium-density rubber, they’ll still perform well on many low-priced consumer applications, such as bicycles, brooms, motorcycles, and other long-handled tools.

What is NPVC foam?

Nitrile PVC is a foam rubber compound designed to withstand temperatures from -25°F to 220°F. Its high-tensile strength gives it resistance to many environments and substances, including oil, gasoline, heat and abrasion. High-tensile strength is one of the reasons NPVC makes for an excellent foam grip tubing material—in addition to its cost effectiveness, durability and softness.
