Thanks to all, problem solved
Thanks everyone. I think the villain was the paint/coating. The bar is black ferrous material. The bike's new so I'm paying attention. When I took out the emery cloth, to check, the grip was still good, no movement.
Dchiefransom the two halves of the clamp never touched and the bolts thread into weld on nuts. I was afraid I'd strip the nut initially. The real answer was roughing up the bar.
