Slide Room Gasket Sweep

Ok... I'm hoping someone will know the answer to my conundrum. When we purchased our motorhome a couple years ago there was a miscellaneous strip of what appeared to be Velcro on one of the slide room exterior walls. I didn't know what it was, so I removed it.... Today, while watching a video of a new 5th wheel, the gal doing the video pointed out that the strips on the slide room walls were there to sweep the gasket, so it lays in the proper position when opening and closing the slide. I have always had to pull the gasket out when the room is extended. My question is, is there a specific material that is used for this purpose, or could I just use a new Strip of Velcro?

It's typically a piece of non-skid tape, intended to provide a grippy surface that flips the rubber sweep over as it passes. I suppose the "loop" side of a velcro strip would have the same effect. Some RVers add these to their rigs, so that the sweeper is always neatly positioned. Not sure it makes any real difference, but doesn't hurt either.
