From extreme heat and massive swells to bitter cold and heavy rain, the maritime industry regularly encounters hazardous environments at sea and onshore. Create a safe working environment for seafarers and crew members abroad your vessel or structure with SafTrax anti-slip thermal spray coatings.
A marine grade non-skid coating is a type of coating used on marine vessels and structures to provide the traction needed for the maritime industry. These anti-slip coatings provide a safe non-skid environment that protects metal substrates from corrosion, wear, abrasion, heat, and impact forces.
Vessels at sea are always in a state of motion, from swaying to heavy rolling and pitching. With a coefficient of friction of 1:1, SafTrax's marine vessel anti-slip coatings provide stable footing in wet or hazardous environments. Designed to perform in extreme conditions, these coatings resist oils and fuels, withstand flexing, and provide corrosion protection for the underlying metal article.
The longer a vessel or marine structure is exposed to the elements, the material preservation needs to be increased. Traditional liquid non-slip coatings take time to fully cure and are vulnerable to chipping and flaking, which creates an opportunity for the base metal to corrode. SafTrax marine structures and vessel non-skid coating spray, however, resist impacts and keep corrosion from undercutting and lifting the coating should it get gouged in service.
The SafTrax line of marine 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.
Easy to apply and with an average lifespan of one decade, our marine non-skid coatings are a durable and economical solution for marine structure and vessel traction and degradation problems. Coating your marine vessel or structure with SafTrax coatings is easy and requires zero maintenance. The coatings are applied using a twin wire arc spray process, which does not require mixing, curing or cordoning off areas for long periods of time. These marine grade anti-slip coatings are ideal for aluminum, cast or ductile iron, stainless steel, and carbon steel surfaces. They are also suitable for concrete and plastic surfaces.
Applications that commonly use SafTrax coatings include boat decks, floors, steps, ladders, walkways, vault doors, transition plates, handicap ramps, and bridge expansion joints and scaffolding, among others. The coatings’ corrosion- and abrasion-resistant properties can increase the longevity of vehicle and forklift loading ramps, aircraft landing areas and marine vessels.
Saftrax’s non-skid coatings are an integral part of marine applications. These coatings provide the surface traction needed to keep personnel safe. Saftrax received a qualification of approval from the Department of the Navy for the Saftrax products TH604 Type I and TH604CF (Chrome Free) Type II. Our line of non-skid coatings is extremely durable and trusted by the Navy.
