Gecko® Nanoplast®

Binder Gecko® Nanoplast® is a revolutionary adhesive tape. It is washable, re-usable, and made of medical silicone; therefore it is non-irritating for skin contact, very light, very thin and leaves absolutely no residues when removed!

With 29,000 gripping heads per cm2 and modelled on nature’s system for gripping all smooth surfaces, Van der Waals forces mean we get an electrostatic interaction that creates an intermolecular attraction just like a magnet.

Glass, any plastic, metal and also skin to a certain extent: nothing resists the attraction of this innovative product. The surface can even be wet or oily, Gecko® will always be able to grip and unlike suction cups Gecko® will work in a vacuum.

It has multiple uses across all sectors. In the industrial field it replaces the vacuum pump to handle almost any object and can be used for automatic packaging machines. Gecko® has been tested in an industrial application over 1 million times! You can fasten, without any effort, your smartphone or other electronic device in any position so that you can read the screen and then remove it whenever you like without damage and leaving any sticky residues.

Another application, with surprising results, is on the mechanical fingers of robots, which allows for greater grip with significantly less expenditure of energy. Gecko® is such an important development that it has won two of the most prestigious international awards for technical innovation.

Full product support as always, is avaible from the Binder UK team who can help you with real world application knowledge. You can also buy this item online in the UK in quantities as low as ½ meter from:
