    Should something be put on your face that has grip and traction patterns so it would

    Should something that's worn on your face that has grip and traction/tread patterns for adhesiveness be called:

    Friction padding/friction pads or traction padding/traction pads.

    Native speakers please input. Which one makes the most sense to you?

    Thanks!

    None of it makes sense to me.

    What is it that you are suggesting that we stick to our faces?

    I don't like the idea of either "friction" (=rubbing) or "traction" (= getting run over) on my face.

    Okay, so it's a nose guard my friend is selling on amazon.com and the EVA foam pads that is worn on the face have tread patterns to help the mask create more grip or traction, so that the mask won't move around when the wearer is active.

    So, should it be high friction cushion pads or traction pads.

    Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Sports-Knight-...rts+knight+inc

    If you look at the last photo, you'll see the picture of what I'm trying to describe.

    I wouldn't use either word, for the reasons I described above.

    This is a job for marketing-speak. Say something like they feature specially-contoured "comfort grip" surfaces for "no-slip" performance.
