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.

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.
