Nonslip Silicone Grips

A proprietary silicone bonding process creates hermetic seals between silicone grips and sleeves overmolded onto surgical and dental instruments.

The seal withstands repeated autoclave cycling and keeps out body fluids. Silicone grips and sleeves are easily colored, giving overmolded stainless steel and aluminum instruments a custom look.
