StickyPad - Gripping Pad
StickyPads are available in 8" and 12" diameter made with our Ultra Grip rubberized material. They will adhere best to a smooth bat or other clean, dry, smooth or glossy surface. They grip greenware, leatherhard, or bisque for trimming or smoothing without the need for clay lumps. Centering rings can be drawn on the surface with a ballpoint pen (which can be washed off later with soap and water), which allows the thickness to be checked easily and also prevents clay residue on the piece from using clay lumps. Tap centering is not recommended, and they work best for trimming when used in conjunction with our Trimming Spinner. StickyPads can be used like a Foam Trim Bat and can even be used to grip foam or keep a custom trimming chuck centered. StickyPads are versatile for a variety of purposes and also can be used for banding wheel work, or a pottery wheel to grip high-fired pieces for rapidly smoothing the bottom of pots with our Diamond Sanding Pads, or some artists use them for gripping ceramic bats.
Use all appropriate safety precautions. NOTE: Do not use for tall, unstable, or out of balance pieces. Do not use with water, use dry only. Always keep downward pressure on the piece when the wheelhead is spinning. Keep out of the reach of children. Made in USA.
