The poles are made of different materials. We only use the top quality materials well known in mechanical engineering. For the parts except for the usable surface of the pole, we use carbon steel as a construction material and then different coatings as a protection against corrosion and other influences.
The coating is powder brushing, chromium plating, and zinc plating. The anti-slippery rubber on the disc is custom made for Lupit only, it is a custom formula. We wanted to have a durable and grippy rubber that can be cleaned and refreshed in terms of stickiness.
By “usable surface” is meant an outer surface of the tube which is used for the dancer to touch, climb and grab. Those are made of different materials:
- stainless steel, mirror polished,
- chrome finish alloy steel, which is 100% Nickel FREE. LP Chrome poles are allergy-free and 100% chipping free poles with amazing grip.
- powder brushed/coated surface over a carbon steel tube
- brass which is mirror polished, no other coating is added which is the most wanted surface for the competition and it is IPSF approved. It has to be frequently cleaned and polished to keep the surface shiny but some like the natural oxide layer which provides even better grip.
