Raptor Smooth Grip Wrapping Tape
2 mm Thick 1" x 51" Ideal for Wrapping Rails
Surprisingly soft, yet incredibly slip-resistant, Raptor Smooth Tape consists of narrow, thin, pre-cut strips of a durable EVA foam with a self-adhesive backing.
Smooth Gripping Tape is ideal for wrapping slick or splintery railings and handles where it provides a cushioned, superior gripping surface. In these applications, it works like handle bar tape on a bicycle. Sailors often use it to wrap tillers, tiller extension, and round foot-pushes.
Gripping Tape has the potential for use in many other applications from creating shelving with a non-slip surface, to door handles, to shower floors. Use your imagination.
Smooth Gripping Tape is offered in two colors, in 1" x 51" strips which are trimmable, allowing for a custom intallation.
Extensively tested, Smooth Gripping Tape is durable in terms of both foam integrity and color stability. With reasonable care, you can expect it to last for many years.
Superior gripping surface
Does not absorb water
Excellent UV resistance
Forgiving, cushioned surface
Ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) closed-cell foam construction - similar in feel to a yoga mat surface

Extensive warranty program
Reliable 3M adhesive backing makes for easy peel-and-stick application. Installation is much easier than other products that require glues and extensive curing times. Bonds to metal, wood, gelcoat, and fiberglass.
Should it ever become necessary, Raptor Deck & Step is specifically engineered to be replaceable - just peel or scrape it off. The adhesive is sticky enough to outlive the foam upper, but will not stain or damage the deck. Any adhesive residue can be easily removed using mild cleaning products. We recommend Mer-Maids Citrus Wonder, or 3M Citrus Based Adhesive Remover.
