Surfaces in the oil and gas industry must withstand extreme environments and conditions. Metal surfaces can become very slippery with the introduction of oils, chemicals, and lubricants and cause costly slips and falls. Applying non-slip coating improves the safety, productivity, and longevity of surfaces in oil and gas environments.
SafTrax’s line of oil and gas anti-skid coating protects surfaces against harsh environments, such as oils, chemicals, lubricants, UV rays, weather, and other damaging elements. Also, applying our coatings provide proven wear, corrosion, and erosion resistance to extend the lifespan of surfaces and help material preservation.
Surfaces in the oil and gas industry can become very slippery and extremely hazardous for workers. Our anti-slip coatings provide superior, long-term traction solutions that reduce injuries and downtime caused by costly workplace slip-and-fall accidents.
Decrease injuries, minimize job-site hazards, and increase uptime and productivity with increased traction from SafTrax oil and gas industry anti-slip coatings. For example, our oil rig non-slip coating is a vital contributor to platform health and safety and is designed for harsh conditions like saltwater and resistant to chemical found in offshore and onshore rigs. With a coefficient of friction of 1:1, SafTrax coatings improve safety conditions by adding anti-slip traction to wet, oil, greasy, and other slick and hazardous environments.
Our coatings also extend the life of unprotected surfaces in oil and gas environments by protecting them from corrosion, wear, abrasion, temperature changes, and impact force. Our easy-to-apply anti-slip coatings require zero routine maintenance and provide slip prevention up to five times longer than other coating options. Also, our coatings withstand flexing and resist peeling, making them an extremely durable and economical slip-protection solution.
Using tubular cores filled with ceramic powders of aluminum, silicone, or iron, SafTrax products are 45 percent lighter than traditional non-skid coatings and provide superior performance with less weight. Common oil and gas applications include stairs, ladder rungs, walkways, decking, and any other potentially slick areas in offshore platforms and rigs, onshore land rigs, and refining and processing facilities.
SafTrax oil and gas non-skid coating products can quickly make your work environment safer because they are ready to use and do not require preparation, time, and regular maintenance. They adhere to practically any substrate and form a superior bond that resists delamination. A twin wire arc spray process is used to apply an anti-slip coating on metal substrates and other materials, including concrete and plastics. Finally, they provide superior traction even if the surface is oily, wet, dirty, or greasy.
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.
