Hook loop is a broad description of materials and products. The correct terminology is 'hook and loop'. When you say hook loop you can be referring to material like hook tape or loop tape.
Hook tape is just like it sounds. A material with tiny hooks along a surface. The types of hooks varies dramatically from 'aggressive' mushroom shaped hooks to easy peeling hooks. Our automotive or aviation customers use aggressive hook materials because they plan to have the product mounted permantently. Whereas a medical customer would want a far less aggressive hook and a soft loop on a medical brace so that the hook and loop materials can be easily peeled apart by the patient and reused over and over again! Navigating the many material options, their specifications and final design is important and we invite you to speak with Speedtech's Vel-Perts for assistance.
Loop tape features tiny loops that are hairy in appearance. They are made to be engaged by hooks. There are tons of different loop materials to choose from and understanding their specifications and properties is important for many applications. For example, some loops are made to more easily peel from hooks for easy use by patients. There are also certain loop materials that do not 'shed' material every time the hooks pull apart from them. Navigating the many material options, their specifications and final design is important and we invite you to speak to Speedtech's Vel-Perts for assistance.
