Can you dip Vex parts in a liquid rubber/flex seal for grip?


#1

Can you dip Vex parts in a liquid rubber/flex seal for grip or is it against the rules. I was planning on dipping my lifting forks for caps in it because i wasn’t getting enough grip from rubber bands


#2

No.


#3

Yeah that’s definitely a no.


#4

To echo those prior to me, this is not legal.

Vex sells antislip matting that is pretty similar to a lot of those found in stores. You could zip tie this to your robot to achieve the same effect.

I use mesh surrounded by rubber bands on mine, and its fine. Might want to try that instead of flex seal…


#6

you could also wrap rubber bands or pneumatic tubing around it…


#7

Never seen this, but maybe you could use the 1/8 inch nylon rope?


#8

haha no.

But you could use anti-grip matting attached by rubber bands/zip ties to repeat those above me. I’d also say you can use pneumatic tubing.
