Municipalities/Bridge Coatings

Untreated metal bridges exposed to moisture can quickly corrode and become slippery, which negatively impacts the structural integrity and increases vehicle or pedestrian accident risks. Safeguard bridges in your community and the people who use them 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. Simple to apply and with an average lifespan of one decade, these coatings are a versatile and economical solution for the municipal bridge, span, and structure degradation and traction issues.

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. 

Developed to endure harsh environmental onslaughts and outlast other coating products, SafTrax products are ideal treatments for carbon steel, cast or ductile iron, aluminum, and stainless steel surfaces. Our coatings exceed NAVY/NAVSEA Military Specification No. 24667 testing requirements. They withstand flexing, resist peeling and are not impacted by inclement weather or exposed sunlight. Offering a coefficient of friction of 1:1, SafTrax coatings decrease slip-and-fall risks by offering enhanced grip in wet or hazardous environments. 

About 45 percent lighter than traditional non-skid coatings, SafTrax products protect a variety of bridges without adding excessive weight. Bridge types that can benefit from our coatings include suspension, beam, arch, truss, girder, and cantilever. SafTrax coatings can also enhance pedestrian walkways, catwalks, ladders, boardwalks, and platforms.

Coating your metal surface with SafTrax products is easy and cost-effective. Apply One-eighth-inch-thick wires using a twin wire arc spray process. Mixing, curing or cordoning off areas for long periods of time is not required. It’s suggested to clean surfaces coated with SafTrax by scrubbing or pressure washing.
