Very interesting experimental data has been sent to us. Can Tokyo Powder’s chalk increase the frictional force of rubber?
Unlike the common train of thought, climbing chalk should not only be used to decrease the amount of moisture on the hands, but increase the friction between the hand and the contact surface. According to our recent research, we have found that to be true with our chalk.
We found that the frictional force has a close relationship with the amount of moisture between the hands and holds, and we have developed products containing a minute amount of moisture. Originally, our products are designed to be most effective in contact with organic surfaces. Perhaps, with items like rubber, it would also increase the friction?
This question led me to many sleepless nights of pondering. Meanwhile, this interesting report came in from two of our friends who were randomly playing around and experimenting on the streets of Tokyo.
Will Climbing Chalk increase the frictional force of rubber?
Why does the video end with “thank you” in the end? – this is another question that is going to keep me up at night!
