Orthex Tool Wrap

Direct Application For Softer Surfaces

Viscolas is applied directly to the tool providing a softer, more yielding handle surface. Kit includes VEP sheet with PSA backing, 1.75” shrink tubing for open handle tools and alternative wrap tape for closed-ended handle tools.

Shock & Vibration Dampening / Improved Tool Control / Full Flexibility of Hand Movement Vibration-reducing Elastomer Layer

Industrial tools subject hands to dangerous levels of impact and vibration. The results can be disabling. Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Tardy Ulnar Nerve Palsy are just a few of the possible afflictions that can result. While these can rob employees of their health, they also rob companies of their productivity. ORTHEX® GRIP KIT are an effective and economical answer.

Kit includes: Viscolas® Visco-Elastic Polymer sheet 12″ x 5″; 18″ x 1.75″ thick heat shrink tube covering material for longer wear and roll of wrap tape for closed-ended handle tools.

  • Easy to apply method to reduce some of the vibration and shock from power and pneumatic tools
  • Ideal for tools such as grinders, pneumatic chisels, jack hammers, drills, snders, nut runners, riveters, power hammers and other vibrating power tools
  • Soft materials help the tool conform to the hand yielding a soft, comfortable gripping surface
  • Note: VEP colour may vary.

VEP Padding

VEPs are solids that mimic the behavior of liquids, which allows dissipation of shock waves better than any other material. The “solid-liquid” nature of VEP absorbs shock waves in all directions at once, reforming to its original shape at a rate that is slow enough so as not to exert outward pressure that could cause reverberations, but fast enough to regain its original shape before the next shock.

  • In laboratory tests, VEP has proven its ability to absorb up to 500% more shock than foam of the same thickness
  • The unique manner in which VEP dissipates impact energy, makes it an ideal material for the improvement of health and safety in industry and commerce
  • VEP padding is positioned in or in combinations of multiple places on the hand: palm, back of hand, fingers, thumb web area
  • VEP is also used for body protectors and cushions to dampen impact and vibration
  • Typical thickness of gloves are 1/8” (3 mm) to provide excellent shock absorption and impact dissipation while allowing tactile feedback
  • Also available in 3/16” (4.5 mm) and 1/4″ (6 mm) thickness for specialty applications
