When choosing a non-skid coating, increased traction usually weighs most heavily in the decision-making process. Some of these coatings, however, wear quickly and require costly preventative maintenance to sustain maximum slip protection.
Ensure your pedestrian or vehicular traffic ways have superior traction in demanding environments with SafTrax anti-slip thermal spray coatings. With zero routine maintenance and capable of lasting up to five times longer than other coating options, our non-skid coatings are durable and economical non-skid solution.
Paint- and epoxy-based skid-resistant coatings typically have a short lifespan, ranging from six months to three years. These traditional coatings are non-flexible and prone to scratching and cracking. Coating imperfections left unaddressed can corrode the metal substrate underneath. Depending on application quality, environmental conditions and amount of traffic experienced, these coatings will often need repair or re-application to safeguard anti-skid properties. This regular maintenance can be time-consuming, cost prohibitive and negatively impact personnel by way of slip and falls.
SafTrax coatings have an average lifespan of one decade or longer and provide a safe, non-skid environment that protects metal substrates from corrosion, wear, abrasion, heat and impact forces. They withstand flexing, resist oils and fuels, and have a 1.1 average coefficient of friction. The application process is simple, easy to learn, highly productive and can be controlled to produce a coated surface with varying degrees of roughness, from light aggressiveness to very aggressive. Cleaning SafTrax coated surfaces can easily be done using pressure washing or a scrub brush.
Applied using a twin wire arc spray process, SafTrax coatings’ wires provide a wear-resistant surface for aluminum, cast or ductile iron, stainless steel and carbon steel.
The SafTrax line of anti-slip coatings is 'Americans with Disabilities Act' compliant and exceed Occupational Safety and Health Administration non-skid requirements.
The coatings’ corrosion- and abrasion-resistant properties can increase the longevity of many different applications to include but not limited to:
