Wear and Tear Pads has developed a new adhesive system, in conjunction with 3M.

The anti-chafe product has been designed by chartered engineer Andrew Grogono with applications ranging from superyachts to sailing dinghies.

The pads are comprised of ultra-thin marine grade stainless steel sheets with a high spec self-adhesive backing.

“Over 11,000 of these simple stainless-steel self-adhesive chafe protection pads have now been sold worldwide,” says Andrew.

“Rope and line chafe damage to gelcoat surfaces is not only difficult to repair but it also reduces the sales value of yachts which have otherwise been well cared for.”

He added: “In addition, unsightly chafe damage is easily concealed behind the polished stainless steel.”

The product doesn’t need screws to fit as is the case with more traditional rubbing strakes.
