I have a connection for this. i could save a little money. How do you think it would compare to Bison chalk or black diamonds?

Crushed glass is the cheapest.

Crushed glass is the cheapest.

That could be good for grip, like little micro-crystals. I think you may be onto something big here.

I don't know if "pole" is used the same way over there as it is over here, but that phrase and what it makes me think of are giving me the cringies.

As the body’s temperature activates the thermoplastic material in Mighty Grip, it clings to the hands and its surface becomes sticky to the touch; producing an incredible slip free grip.

Thermoplastic? Anybody know anything about it?

Plastic = thermoplastic polymer. It means as it heats up it bends, eq plastic, vs thermosetting which doesn't, eg a brick.

If you read that and thought "WTF does that have to do with that chalk?" The answer is nothing - they're talking shite.
