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 crewmembers abroad your vessel or structure with SafTrax anti-slip thermal spray coatings.
SafTrax slip-resistant coatings provide a safe 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, our anti-skid coatings are a durable and economical solution for marine structure and vessel traction and degradation problems.
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 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, 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 coatings, however, resist impacts and keep corrosion from undercutting and lifting the coating should it get gouged in service.
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.
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.
From deck to dock, ensuring personnel safety and structural corrosion resistance is simple, efficient and budget friendly with SafTrax coatings. Applied using a twin wire arc spray process, SafTrax coatings’ one-eighth-inch thick wires provide a wear-resistant surface for aluminum, cast or ductile iron, stainless steel, and carbon steel. The application process does not require mixing, curing or cordoning off areas for long periods of time.
