  1. Which Adhesive Should I Use For My Hook And Loop?

    Which Adhesive Should I Use For My Hook And Loop?
    We offer two types of adhesive backing for all of our peel and stick hook and loop products. There's a rubber based adhesive and an acrylic based adhesive.

  5. The Difference Between Hook Vs. Loop

    Before going over the difference between hook and loop, it’s important to note that what most people consider “Velcro” is a product called hook and loop. “Velcro” is a brand, called the Velcro Companies, and they are the original manufacturer of hook and loop fasteners. Continue reading
  6. There’s No Such Thing as a Velcro Strap

    There’s No Such Thing as a Velcro Strap
    “Velcro” is actually a brand, not a product! The product is called hook and loop fasteners and we manufacture hundreds of thousands of straps annually with hook and loop. We make these straps with our DuraGrip Brand hook and loop as well as with VELCRO® Brand hook and loop fasteners.
