Whether delivering vital cargo, supporting allies in conflict zones or responding to medical emergencies, every second counts for helicopter pilots and their crews. Improve helipad safety and longevity with SafTrax anti-slip thermal spray coatings.
SafTrax coatings create a non-skid environment that protects metal substrates from corrosion, wear, abrasion, heat, and impact forces. Easy to apply and with an average lifespan of one decade, these anti-skid coatings are a versatile and economical solution to helicopter landing surface traction and degradation problems.
Developed to perform in extreme conditions, SafTrax coatings are not impacted by inclement weather or exposed sunlight. They withstand flexing and offer corrosion resistance to the underlying metal article. With a coefficient of friction of 1:1, these coatings reduce slip-and-fall risks by offering improved grip in wet or hazardous environments.
The SafTrax line of anti-slip coatings includes TH335, TH604, and TH605, which are Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant and exceed Occupational Safety and Health Administration non-skid requirements. TH604 is a tubular or cored aluminum wire filled with up to 46 percent of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) powder, whereas TH605 is tubular or cored wire filled with up to 46 percent of silicon carbide (SiC) powder. TH335 is a tubular or cored wire comprised of iron and packed with aluminum and carbon powders.
Most helipad coatings have lifespans of six months to three years and require time-consuming and cost-prohibitive preventative maintenance to avoid cracking and base metal corrosion. SafTrax coatings have an average lifespan of 10 years or more, do not peel, resist wear, and do not need preventative maintenance.
Coating your helipad with SafTrax products is simple. It's applied using a twin wire arc spray process, which does not require mixing, curing or cordoning off areas for long periods of time. Clean surfaces coated with SafTrax by scrubbing or pressure washing.
SafTrax coatings are regularly applied to flight surfaces like helipads, boat decks, floors, steps, ladders, walkways, vault doors, transition plates, handicap ramps, bridge expansion joints, and scaffolding, among others.
