As mentioned, NPVC has been the standard material in the foam grip industry yet; the original material was not as adequate as it needed to be for most applications. Gripworks committed to improving the materials shortcomings, and did so successfully throughout the years. With an ongoing drive to meet the customer needs, Gripworks is still creating and improving formulas, and the result is UV-NPVC. This economical foam rubber has the same features of the original NPVC, but has added outdoor ozone and weather resistant qualities. It has been fully tested and meets standards for averting deterioration and cracking. Grips become harder and more durable as the density increases, and the needs of any product can be matched with a high, medium or low density. A variety of color choices are available.

Low Density UV-NPVC Foam

Extremely soft and flexible. Great for buffed grips or foam tubes that will be used as grips. Thinner buffed grips in this formula will have limited durability, but still function well on many low priced consumer applications.

Medium Density UV-NPVC Foam

Our most common NPVC material, it is the perfect combination of softness and durability. It can be used on a wide variety of applications.

High Density UV-NPVC Foam

Harder and more durable. Used on many commercial grade products and industrial items.


NPVC foam grips are available in both straight foam tubes and splined tubes as well as buffed , FHG and custom styles.
