Q: What is Hook and Loop?
A: Hook and Loop is a fabric fastener comprised of a SOFT FUZZY (Loop) side and a ROUGHER (Hook) side.
When pushed together, hundreds of tiny hooks engage the loops to form a strong fastener. This fastener has improved strength
with vibration, is non-corrosive, and easily adjustable.
SOFT FUZZY SIDE = LOOP
ROUGH SIDE = HOOK
Q: Which side of the hook and loop fastener is which?
A: The soft fuzzy side is the loop and the rough side is the hook. The
soft fuzzy loop side is sometimes called "pile" by the military.
Q: Are there different strengths of hook and loop material?
A: Yes, there are many strengths of material from very weak to almost permanent. When you use
very strong hook and loop fastener the cycle life is shorter than the weaker hook and loop fastener. Most applications
use the DURAGRIP brand for an excellent combination of strength and cycle life.
Q: Does the pressure sensitive (peel and stick)(PS) adhesive work well on most surfaces?
A: Yes, depending on your application there is an adhesive that should work for you. The major considerations
are the surface that it sticks to (substrate), the temperature range (room temperature or hotter), and the
environment (wet or dry). Generally, the standard rubber-based adhesive works well on most applications. This
adhesive takes about 8 hours to cure and is the standard heavy-duty peel and stick adhesive.
Q: What is the widest hook and loop fastener I can get?
A: The widest that the standard hook and loop comes in is 4". The loop (soft fuzzy side) is available in two types

for display boards and is 60" wide and is sold by the lineal yard.
