GRIP™ is the established UK-developed tyre softener, designed to produce outstanding traction in all forms of high-performance driving, from street to full race and using road or racing tyre compounds. GRIP, gives all the benefits of soft, sticky tyre compounds without the expense. This non-toxic, non-flammable liquid is simply painted on to the surface of the tyre, whether treaded or slick, and left to cure for three to four days to ensure adequate penetration and softening. Durometer testing (used to measure tyre softness) reveals that one application of GRIP can increase the softness of a tyre by up to twenty points. By comparison, a traditional drag racing burnout will achieve a tyre softening effect of around five points. GRIP uses a long-lasting, proven formula that stays in the tyre for much longer periods (it does not evaporate) and so is ideal for circuit racing, karting and motorcycle racing – in fact virtually any road race environment. GRIP works on all kinds of tyres, both old and new, and by reversing the aging process, can even extend tyre life. Unlike its competitors, GRIP is manufactured in the UK and because it is non-flammable and non-toxic, it can be more conveniently transported, not just nationwide but throughout the world.
