1. How does Anti-Slip Coating work?
Once applied, Anti-Slip Coating creates a long-lasting, nano-based layer of TiO2 rectangular-shaped structures that move back and forth whenever someone steps on them while the surface is wet. This structures, combined with this movement, are able to increase the floor’s friction coefficient turning the surface into a non-skid one. Anti-Slip Coating is NOT an etching solution.
2. Do I have to clean the floor before applying Anti-Slip Coating?
In order for our coating to bond properly, the floor surface needs to be completely clean, free of all contaminants, waxes, previous coatings and completely dry.
3. Can I seal over it or will it work on a sealer?
Anti-Slip Coating will not work if applied over an existing sealer or if a sealer is applied over it. If you’re looking for a high-traffic, industrial sealer with anti-skid properties, please use our two part component industrial coating system: Lacquepoxy which comes in clear or tinted versions.
4. What kind of floors can I use Anti-Slip Coating on and how long before it increases their friction coefficient?
Anti-Slip Coating will only bond and increase the friction coefficient on floors made out of polished granite, ceramic & porcelain tiles, quarry & slate tiles. The bonding process varies depending on the floor material. For example, most porcelain tiles require anywhere from 20- 30 seconds, most ceramic tiles require anywhere from 30-50 seconds and polished granite may take up to a couple of minutes before achieving the desired results.
5. Can I use Anti-Slip Coating on different floor materials than the ones specified above?
You shouldn’t use it on other floor materials as 1) It will not bond to them 2) It might alter the material’s appearance and turn it dull.
6. How do I know the floor’s friction coefficient has been increased?
After spraying the product on the floor, wait about 20 seconds before running your fingers/ hand on the treated surface area. You’ll be able to notice a difference right away once the coating has bonded. If you can’t feel anything give it another 15-20 seconds and repeat this step. Once you can feel the grip increase, use water to neutralize and clean the treated surface. It is important to neutralize the coating as it might turn the floor dull if it’s left on it too long.
7. How do I maintain the surface?
The treated surface should be cleaned every 2-3 weeks by using water and a mild cleaning agent such as out biodegradable cleaner: Bio Clean.
8. Does Anti-Slip Coating work underwater?
Absolutely! We’ve had a large number of clients use our product due to slippery pool issues. The application has crated safer spaces by dramatically reducing slip and fall accidents.9. When will I receive my products?
